    Default Mouth ulcers

    I am in so much pain!!! I have mouth ulcers, 6 that I counted. One between my top lip and gum, others positioned around and under my tongue. How do I get rid of these pesky things and stop them from coming back? I went to the GP she has said its stress but I don't see my stress reducing anytime in the next 18-20 years so that's impractical.

    Thank you wise helpers of bubhub!

    Default Mouth ulcers

    I get them too. Have also been to the doctors multiple times and have had full bloods and they can't find anything wrong

    I use kenalog, you get it from behind the counter at any chemist. It's amazing! My pain also gets so bad that I use codeine too

    I can't get rid of them tho, I have the constantly... All I can do is deal with the symptoms

    I get them after I've let myself get too dehydrated

    I get them all the time, especially after I accidentally bite my lip. I think they are caused by a herpes virus that you have for life but probably flares up when stressed or run down. I haven't really found a good treatment, my GP (or pharmacist?) recommended one called kenalog (or something like that). It was better than nothing so you could try that.

    A specialist told me a few months ago that mouth ulcers can be a symptom of coeliac disease. Not saying that's what you have but I know for DD1, this was and is the case for her.

    Sounds really odd but try taking folic acid. It really works!

    Do you know if coeliac is hereditary? I have a heap of cousins who are officially diagnosed with coeliac and DS is actually intolerant. Interesting thought anyway.


    I'm def going to the chemist tomorrow and picking up kenalog. I'll try anything at this point haha. I've started taking a multi again and extra vitamin C so I guess I just have to wait it out. It's so frustrating because it's difficult to eat and drink. I had a few a couple weeks ago but they went away and I had a week pain free but lo and behold they are back.

    Thank you for your replies :-)

    It doesn't have to be hereditary but it can be too. It's an auto-immune disease.
