Ulcers. What causes them? I have ulcers once in a while, and when I do they come in groups of 3,4,5 or even 6 at once. The ulcer gels aren't very effective. They stay for a week before fading away. They are all over the mouth and tongue. Sometimes they begin with wide redness then a big ulcer! How can I never get ulcers?

Hi lybrate-user, thanks for asking. Tongue is the mirror of your digestive system. Mouth and tongue ulcers are due to indigestion or impairment of gastrointestinal flora. You have to improve your dietary habits in order to get complete relief from recurrent mouth ulcers. Please have a paid online consultation with me through Lybrate so that I can give you detailed advice and proper treatment.
