I am troubled often by mouth ulcers. Are there simple remedies for this? I use a pain relieving gel and go on a course of folic acid and becosules and they come under control.

Hi, there are many reasons for getting mouth ulcers. Considering your age, it might be due to sharp cusps of the teeth, dryness of the mouth, underlying systemic conditions, due to medications. Etc please avoid taking pain killers it will worsen the condition. Avoid changing the tooth pastes frequently, avoid stuffed foods like kukure, lays, chew gelusil tablets for 1 week (3 times daily. It will neutralise the acidic nature of the mouth. Please visit a dentist immediately to avoid things getting worsen.

U urself telling solution. Yes that's true when our protein levels come down there is chance of ulcers forming in the mouth so instead you take good protein diet like carrots, milk diluted with water etc.

Hi, the problem you have described is suggestive of recurrent aphthous ulcers. Once ulcers are formed, they will stay for 5 to 10 days and heal by itself. For pain and burning over the ulcers, you can apply honey as a home remedy. Pain receiving gels and multivitamins like becosules and folic acid also help. These ulcers are mainly related with constipation, inefficient sleep, stress, vitamin deficiency and many more. If you get ulcers more then one time in a month for more than a year, then it's time to visit an oral medicine specialist and get the condition treated.
