Hello, I am 15 years old and I am from US. My question is that in every one or two weeks I get a mouth ulcer which is big in size and very painful. Why does it cause and what to do? Please tell. Hoping for an early response

Hi. There are many causes for mouth ulcers. Stress, gastrointestinal problems, any sharp tooth in mouth which causes irritation, Vit B12 deficiency etc. Look for the cause and try to remove it. Look for the size of the ulcers whether they are healing each day or not. Apply Dologel ointment 3-4 times daily. Take more of liquids, fruits and Vitamin C containing fruits. Ulcers will normally heal within 7-10 days. If persists beyond that please consult a dentist. Avoid hot, Spicy and hard food items.
