Ulcerative gingivitis responds to penicillin V 500 mg / 6h PO combined with metronidazole 400 mg / 8h PO.

Because teeth brushing is very sore during an attack, the mouth should be kept clean by the use of regular mouth washes.

The patient should be told to pay careful attention to oral hygiene after the attack in order to help prevent recurrence.
