Thanks for posting your query.
Ulcers in the mouth when recurrent are termed aphthous ulcers.
These ulcers are known to recur and are very painful with white base and red inflamed edges.
They are frequently associated with chronic constipation, deranged liver function, Iron and vitamin deficiencies and poor oral hygiene.
So you should take lots of fluid and fibre containing diets like whole wheat flour chapatis and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables and fruits. If still constipated then take laxatives to produce at least one soft motion a day.
Also take a multivitamin supplement in the supervision of your physician.
You should improve the oral health, brush twice a day and do chlorhexidine mouth gargles thrice a day and avoid eating any edibles during ensuing 2 hours to ensure good germicidal effect of chlorhexidine; Do warm saline gargles after you take anything orally.
I hope this answers your query.
