Mouth Ulcers
I have got mouth ulcers. They are on my tongues and there is a big one near back of my left side jaw. It has been a week and it hurts a lot. It is very difficult to eat and drink. Even drinking water proves to be very painful. It is very painful and the pain doesn't let me concentrate on my studies. I am using Betadine gargle and metrogyl gel on my ulcers to get rid of them. But that also doesn't prove to be helpful. Please suggest.

Ulcers generally take 1-2weeks to heal completely. recurrent ulcers can be due to local mouth conditions such as rough teeth surface or rough mouth appliances or dentures. It can also b due to General nutrtional deficiency, digestion prob, work pressure n stressful lifestyle etc. Certain bacterial n viral infections also cause ulcers. Treatment: start on multivitamin tabs n iron supplements if ur hb% levels r low. Apply dologel oral ointment on ulcers thrice daily. Avoid spicy n oily food, alcohol, tea n coffee. Drink plenty of water n hv fibrous foods. Visit dentist to rule out oral factors responsible for ulcers.
