does anyone suffer from mouth ulcers??

my hubby used to get them really bad.

i looked into the cause of them and founds some really useful tips on the internet.

the main one was to avoid toothpaste with sodium laural sulphate (excuxe spelling)

the only one they know it isnt in is sensodyne total gel.

most others have it in. apparantly it has some adverse affect on the lining on your mouth so thse prone to ulcers willl keep getting them!

also avoid certain foods with hiogh acid levels such as tomatoes, salad cream, salt and vinegar crisps..

my hubby used to suffer really bad, but since making these changes has made a great difference!!!

hope this helps..

I used to get the odd one when I ate loads of sweets and crisps!

I get them if I eat sweets or occasionally when I am run down.

Yeah, same here, I get them when run down and always in the same spot

Bongela does the trick for me...and it tastes nice. :thumbsup:

Same, I like the taste and helpfulness of Bongela!! (Although I know a few people that find it tastes horrible and stings!!)

I really do believe that the run-down bit is the cause, my kids get them when they have a couple of really late nights & are suffering from sleep deprovation, clubbing etc. They live to tell the tale though, (then repeat the process)!:)

I used to get them very badly when I was a teanager I was given a type of mouthwash to use daily and it cut down the amount I got. Hardly get them at all now

Me too. My own remedy is to eat hot lime pickle sandwiches. That stuffs so evil you can't feel anything for hours and it works as a pretty good anti-septic:giggle:

I used to get them all the time when I was run down, but the dentist prescribed me a toothpaste, and I havent had any since using it (wasnt prescribed for that, but seems to help!)

Also, downing alcoholic drinks can cause them.


Now I know why I keep getting them:giggle:

Rinstead Gel is good as well. This also comes in pastle form as well. I like sticking the pastle to the ulcer to sooth it.

I suffer quite badly from them - either due to stree or because i am run down. My dentist told me to use Cordosil mouthwash and it works a treat!!

i mean my hubby used to get about 10 at a time!!

these changes have really helped

I used to suffer from this.

Firstly i went to dentist and had a deep clean. Teeth were covered in plaque built up over years. :x

Switched to electric tooth brush. Use the tepe things to clean between teeth and use Dental PH mouth wash.

I get much less ulcers now.

I am not sure on the stress thing. I did think they may be caused due to an allergy.
