Canker Sores - Ways It Can Be Treated!

Canker Sores - Ways It Can Be Treated!

Canker sores can be said to be quite annoying, to say the very least. However, it is a relief to know that most of these sores are not a cause of concern. That being said, when a person has the opportunity to stop the sores from staying on, why should he or she not take it? In order to get to know how to treat canker sores, it is first important to understand what they are and how they are caused.

These sores mainly appear in children. The areas where they appear are the mouth and the tongue, in particular. One of the interesting things about canker sores is the fact that doctors do not know what the exact cause of these sores is. The symptoms of having canker sores include a possible tingling in the area in the run-up to the canker sore appearing, as well as painful red sores. It is to be kept in mind that these sores can develop either on their own or in groups.

Possible reasons why a person may have canker sores can include a bad diet, an infection and also a deficiency in terms of the intake of certain nutrients. One of the key nutrients happens to be folic acid. Iron and the vitamin B12 are not to be forgotten, either.

When a person would like to make an effort to reduce the pain and the discomfort which is associated with a canker sore, he or she should follow a routine in which after a meal is eaten, he or she should take some baking soda and mix it with a little bit of water. After this is done to a sufficient point to make a paste, he or she should apply it on the canker sores in the mouth. If an alternative is required, what could be used is a mix of water along with some hydrogen peroxide. This is to be followed up soon with some milk of magnesia.

The last thing a person wants is for an infection to strike the canker sores he or she may have. Not only is this quite uncomfortable, to say the very least, but there is also a longer time taken to the point of full recovery. In order to combat this, mouthwashes which include tetracycline are welcome. Also rinsing the mouth with a mix of warm water and salt is a smart move. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

Treating Lung Cancer With Ayurveda

Lungs are very important organs of your body as they play a pivotal role in respiration. Lung cancer refers to the gradual development of cancerous cells in the lungs.

Many common symptoms can help you to identify lung cancer. They are stated below:

Lung cancer is very fatal and has less chances of getting cured. However, ayurveda offers effective and natural remedies for treating lung cancer. They are mentioned as follows:

  1. Practice breathing exercises regularly: Breathing exercises can help you to deal with the problem of lung cancer in an effective manner.
  2. Quit smoking and avoid drinking alcohol: This is absolutely essential for treating lung cancer. Both smoking and consuming alcohol can cause severe damage to your lungs.
  3. Practice meditation. According to ayurveda, meditation is known to have great healing powers for any health problem. This can help you to cope up with cancer as well.
  4. Avoid junk foods and carbonated drinks: Consuming these foods frequently can worsen your condition.
  5. Massage therapy: Sometimes massage therapy can work wonders in ayurveda. Massaging certain essential oils can be very helpful.
  6. Aromatherapy: Aromatherapy can also prove to be effective in treating lung cancer. It is a procedure in which essential oils are not only used for massaging your body but also for inhaling.
  7. Ayurvedic herbs: There are many ayurvedic medicines and herbs also which can treat lung cancer efficiently.

Since lung cancer involves very less survival rate, it is of utmost importance that you go the doctor immediately once you start noticing any of the above mentioned symptoms.

My grandfather is suffering from cancer in gall bladder from last 8 months. The treatment is undergoing in Command hospital (Military). He is medicated with chemo (3 times done. Vomiting & pain is regular. There is no relief by this treatment.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Apparently, these are the side effects of the chemo being administered at present. You can connect with his medical oncologist to manage these suitably. Furthermore, for Gallbladder cancer, an integrative treatment with natural medicines can not only improve clinical outcomes but also help alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy too. I could have advised in particular had I had known his exact treatment history including his current medications now. Please note that listening to soothing & melodious music does help reduce the feel of nausea/ vomiting as well as pain. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.

My five years old daughter has cancer. How we prevent it. I heard that the person affected by cancer cannot live more than three or four months. Is it true or not?

I have a 2 year old baby I have stopped breast feeding her, but my nipples irritate me while we have sex or baby plays with it.

Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for the question. Your nipples can become irritated, sore, or even cracked due to friction. Running and sexual activity are sometimes causes of temporary nipple problems due to vigorous rubbing. A severe blow to your breast or unusual pressure on the chest can also cause nipple discharge. These are normal. Yet you could consult your gynecologist. Take care.

I am a seventeen year old girl. I have some kind of translucent secretion from my breasts. I have not found any kind of lump in both the breasts and it's not painful either. I was just wondering where the actual problem lies and how can I heal the condition?

The discharge will be watery and will stain the clothing your wear. This is secretions of the glands in the breast under the effect of the hormonal changes that you are under going at puberty. They will disappear into your twenties. But a careful clinical and imaging examination of the breast is essential to detect something more sinister.

If it is a proven breast cancer then the treatment depends upon the stage of disease. Usually chemotherapy followed by surgery and then further treatment according to surgical staging is done. You must urgently consult an onco surgeon for the same.

My wife Is suffering from stomach cancer stage4 and now vomits only blood no intake of food or drink not even medicine only survives on saline weight reduced from 75 kg to 40 kg. Age 65 years advise what to do.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, kindly specify that in which other organ it has spread. For any radical treatment her general condition needs to be stable. She needs evaluation by surgeon if any feeding tube either nasogastric or feeding jejunostomy can be placed, in her condition palliative care or best supportive care is generally offered to make her as comfortable as possible sometimes haemostatic dose of radiation also works well to control bleeding.

I have bilateral axillary lymphadenitis since 3 years and it increase in size with age. Now its more discomfort for me while sleeping. It cause intense pain when axilla pressed against bed and pain increases during menses. Also I felt pain in may tail of breast both side. And also my LMP is not one. It fluctuates from the time of menarche. I think menstrual cycle is of 35 days. Now my question is should I operate to remove the swellings or continue medical treatment. Can it recur? Can it become malignant if I do not operate? Is there any complication if I ignored now?

Your symptoms suggest axillary tail of the breast extending in to arm pits. If it is very painful they should be removed. As far as malignancy is concerned they are breast tissue and have the same chance of developing malignancy as the rest of the breast. You should also get fnac done before planning for surgery.
