Dear Lybrateuser, - Along with medication, one has to also maintain good oral hygiene - brush at least twice a day (morning & night), do Listerine mouth wash gargles once a day, do flossing once a day - avoid hot, spicy & junk food - have 7-8 glasses of water for proper hydration per day - apply Smyle gel before & after consuming food - take tablet B Complex, once in the morning after breakfast, if pain is more can take a pain relief tablet after meals - consult a dentist if there is not much improvement in condition as irritation by a malaligned tooth may be causing the problem.
Let your wife visit a dentist for real cause. Sometimes a sharp tooth cusp is the culprit. Otherwise she may be suffering from recurrent aphthous stomatitis for which only smyle gel or dologel CT or orasore application will not help to stop recurrent ulcers. It requires scaling and polishing of teeth, regular tongue cleaning and specific medications such as Amlexanox gel, rexidine m forte gel combined for 5 to 7 days. Once ulcers disappears she has to maintain oral hygiene by proper brushing, using chlorhexidine mouthwash twice daily. Taking vitamin B complex, selenium, zinc etc. Will add to her general body health and hence the immunity. Even then, if it fails, which happens in many cases, contact us.
