Canker Sores - Ways They Can Be Treated!

Canker sores are also known as aphthous sores and are the most common type of mouth ulcers. They mostly occur on the inside of the lips or cheek and are mostly whitish or yellowish in color. The sores are mostly surrounded by inflamed, reddish soft tissue. Canker sores commonly appear between the age of 10 and 20 years. They mpe ay create a tingling sensation in the mouth that makes eating, talking or swallowing difficult. In some cases, canker sores may cause general malaise and headache.

Reasons behind canker sores
1. Any kind of viral infection
2. Unhygienic brushing habits, such as not cleaning the mouth often or well enough.
3. Hormonal fluctuations, especially during the menstrual cycle
4. Inadequate rest and sleep
5. Low immunity
6. Stress
7. Food allergy
8. Deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals
9. Some kind of mouth injury
10. Ill-fitted dental appliances such as braces or dentures.
11. Acidic or spicy food.

Types of canker sores and symptoms
Canker sores are mainly of two types
1. Simple canker sores: These may occur twice or thrice in a year and can heal without treatment within a span of 3 to 4 weeks.
2. Complex canker sores: These sores generally appear in the elderly, mostly in those who have a history of frequent sores. These may be accompanied by swelling of lymph nodes, very painful sores, high fever, headache, fatigue and general illness. Inflammation and infection of the ulcers may also occur if not diagnosed and treated on time.

Ways canker sores can be treated
1. Antimicrobial mouth wash to rinse the mouth
2. Antibiotic mouthwashes or oral pills
3. Corticosteroid ointments can be applied on the affected area to reduce the inflammation and promote rapid healing.
4. Drinking milk, consuming yoghurt or ice cream is known to provide relief.

Hello lybrate-user. There could be many underlying causes for recurrent mouth ulcers. Your diet/ stress/ any tummy issues/ any vitamin deficiency etc. So it's best that you see a dentist and figure out the cause and then get the treatment. For symptomatic relief, avoid hard/ spicy/ hot food items. Apply dologel-CT or Mucopain on your ulcers before brushing and eating. Get it checked soon. Good luck.

Ulcers in mouth can't be control taking precaution but not solving. please advise me.

Dr. Anshumali Srivastava 90% (717 ratings)

Ulcers in your mouth can be associated with any sharp tooth edges or can be spontaneous. If you feel sharp edges causing ulcers it can be corrected by dentist. If ulcers are spontaneous you can apply amlexanox gel and rexidine m forte gel alternatively 2-3 times each daily till ulcers heal. Avoid spicy and hot food stuffs, chew on ice frequently and since you are allergic to plant products, avoid chewing guava leaves, kattha and other less recognized or non scientific products. It will not help in soothing your pain but can aggravate or can cause allergic reaction.

HI lybrate-user, Mouth can be caused due to vitamin B 12 deficiency, hormonal imbalances, stress, certain medications, over heat in the body etc. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene, avoid spicy and acidic foods like citrus fruits etc. Drink more water, take antibiotics under doctors prescription, or OTC ointments etc. You can also apply butter and take vitamins rich fruits vegetable and nuts. For few days try to eat bland and liquid foods which can help to an extent. It is better to consult a doctor. Wishing you good health. Hope this helps.
