MOUTH ULCER /CANKER SORE

For years i have been afflicted by this so called mouth ulcers.From small to full blown ulcer,its not an experience i would like to have.Last month i got a bad case of the mouth ulcer, i could barely open my mouth,speak and swallow.I was getting worried thinking something must be really wrong with me.So to answer all my questions,i went on a quest online to find out more about mouth ulcers:

ORAL ULCER : is the name for the appearance of an open sore inside the mouth caused by a break in the mucous membrane or the epithelium on the lips or surrounding the mouth.

2 COMMON ULCERS
  1. aphthous ulcers = commonly known as Canker Sore
  2. herpis simplex virus = commonly known as the Cold Sore
CAUSES

  • Range from lack of vitamin b12,
  • Iron,Folic acid
  • trauma
  • infection
  • viral
  • dietary
  • immune system
  • fatigue
  • allergy
  • fatigue
  • stress
  • cancer
How to avoid getting one is up to us..Oral hygiene is the number one key and balance diet and getting daily dose of vitamin b12,folic acid and iron. If you have already have a mouth ulcer/canker sore now,try mouth wash with antibacterial formula, or gargle warm water with salt and the most painful one is dashing the ulcer with salt. I myself have tried all this and it worked wonders for me.I must advice if you use the salt method try numbing the oral ulcer and the surrounding area with ice cube.
