What about HGH? I have had 7 sets of anti biotics. That caused other problems. We have used salt water rinses and ice pacs and direct injections into the sores. But still having pain. Do you have no recommendations at all.

Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for reverting back . HGH has got so many healing reports but none of them is proved and hence it may be beneficial but cannot be said with surity . Other things like collagen graft are also used . Gum lesions are recurrent maximum of the times so it may lead a long time to heal as it is a very sensitive area . Mouth hygeine is the most important thing which can be curative . I would advise you to avoid excessive treatment and let the lesion heal by itself , antibiotics will work only when there is source of infection . Dr. Shruti
