I have just gotten a really big ulcer inside my mouth...
Does anyone have any good tips on how to get rid of them?
There's no quick fix to get rid of them, you have to let them run their course.
One thing I do find helps a little is gargling / swishing warm water and salt a few times a day to kill the bacteria. Word of warning....it does sting
Or You could use your finger to directly put the salt directly on your ulcer then rinse with water. it does hurt like hell on contact , but it does recover quicker. Otherwise use above method
That just made me shudder just thinking about it.
I usually get them if I eat a a lot of oily food or if I hit my gums with my toothbrush by accident
A dentist once told me to apply vegemite to the ulcer. It does work, my ulcer would heal way quicker if i did that, but again it does hurt a bit.
There is some cream/ointment thing you can get from the chemist, I can't remember what it's called sorry, it helps heal the ulcer and covers the ulcer so you're not knocking it all the time. That one really helped with painful ones, although it does have a bit if a taste to it.
I think it's Kenalog in Orabase or something like that!
For bad ones I use my tooth brush or a cotton bud to wipe off the scab/pus before bed and they heal a significant amount overnight, usually gone a day or 2 after that. It hurts but has been THE most effective thing for me over the years.
Yes Kenalog was the one I had. Thanks Emmydoo!
Vegemite applied directly to the ulcer works! If it stings, it's working. I have to take a B vitamin to prevent them otherwise I get ulcers every month.
Sublingual (tablet dissolves under the tongue) vitamin b12 has helped my mouth ulcers immensely. I rarely get them any more.
I used to get lots of mouth ulcers when I was young. I think it was due to stress, nutritional deficiencies or health issues. I used Bonjela Teething Gel and it gave temporary relief. Now you can buy Bonjela Mouth Ulcer Gel, but I haven't tried it. These days, I prefer to use natural remedies. I'm sure if you did a Google search, there would be something natural to give temporary relief.
I do the Vegemite thing too! It really works, and I always have some on hand.
Weirdly enough, I actually get mouth ulcers if I haven't been eating Vegemite!
Interesting! I wonder what it is in vegemite that prevents them? I guess the B Vitamins?
No, it's the saltiness of the vegemite that does the trick.
I meant why Lina gets ulcers when she hasn't been eating vegemite.
Yep - Vit B deficiency. Comes up in my blood tests.
Usually I just do salt on the ulcer. Stings but then it numbs as well. Gentler version is salt water wash, like someone's mentioned.
I just use a salt mouth wash and then see if that helps, most of the time I have to wait till they go on there own.
I use fresh aloe gel (we have aloe growing in a pot on our balcony) on my mouth ulcers and it seems to take the pain away. It shrinks and heals them much faster than if I leave the ulcer to heal on it's own.
I also put it on cuts I get in my mouth from eating things like toast.
Aloe is anti-bacterial and has the same pH as skin.
Gilded, thanks for that tip. I've never thought of Aloe for mouth ulcers but it makes sense.
I was recommended 'Chlorofluor Gel' which helps reduce the discomfort and duration of mouth ulcers.
It's inexpensive and can be found at Chemist Warehouse or Priceline.
Worked like a gem for me!
There are a few things available in the chemist but mail avoid aggravating it and rinsing with warm salty water to keep clean
Dont do the vegemite it kills!!
I use vegamite or I gargle salt water . You can also get from the chemist a taste to put on the ulster that has an antibiotic
oooh, I've a mouth ulcer at the moment and never heard of putting yegemite on it, gonna do that now!
have you tried rinsing your mouth with some warm water and sea salt? and then afterwards apply a bit of honey to the ulcer because its antibacterial and will help it heal quicker
I used to suffer alot from ulcers but I do find the Vegemite works a treat. You just have to endure the sting as thats the salt doing is work on the ulcer. Hope it works for you and its much cheaper than buying chemicals at the Pharmacy.
For many years I have had severe allergic reaction to normal hair colour that contains ammonia and peroxide.
I had good results both with niacinamide and vitamin C in the past, and I like using them both in my morning routine, but I'm not a fan of layering several products.
I loved this. I have dry hair but wow this changed it. It hydrated and moisturized my hair, it made it smell so nice and fresh. It gave my hair a shine.
