Reccurent mouth ulcer caused by Nutritional Deficiencies such as Iron and Vitamin.,
Poor dental hygine, Bowel diseases , Skin diseases..etc.
My advice is , Keep your blood sugar level with in normal limit.
Take Vit , B.Complex tablets along with Liver tonlcs.
Eat Manathakkali keerai [ BLACK NIGHT SHADE ] frequentely. Because the leafs are very effective in the treatment of mouth ulcer, which clears the digestive and stomach disorders.
1.Grate some coconut. Extract the milk and gargle with this 3-4 times aday.
2.Gargle warm water added with common table salt 3 times a day.

1. You haven't mentioned about your Blood sugar level?
2. If Sugar level is poorly controlled it will promote the growth of bacteria in mouth resulting in frequent gum disease and mouth ulcers.
3. Any Addiction?
4. one effect of Diabetes is dry mouth due to which there is not enough saliva production and the person is prone to mouth infection or sores, does your mouth remain wet?
5. If your sugar level is on higher side, make sure it is brought under normal range and then see whether the symptoms of mouth ulcers are reduced.
6. check your Hb%, Vit. B12 level.
7. till no further conclusion is drawn you can chew leaves of 'chameli' for effective relief without any effect on sugar level.

Dear Peter,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic,
Mouth ulcer in a diabetic patient should be considered with seriousness and one should immediately go for sugar check up.If it is normal then you need to manage medicinally the ulcer in mouth.
For this you can take borax 30 4 tabs 3 times in day for 4-5 days.Don't worry about other serious diseases like cancer.If the ulcer is not cured for more than 1 month than only generally it results in cancer and that too there are very vague chances ,plus some associated factors like smoking ,tobacco chewing etc are responsible for such complications otherwise most of the ulcers are benign.

Wish you speedy recovery,

Dear Peter,
Reccurent mouth ulcers could be caused due a to a variety of reasons like Vitamin B complex deficiencies, poor oral hygiene, constant irritation due to sharp tooth or dentures, trauma while brushing teeth, alcohol, tobacco chewing, drugs like aspirin etc.,
The underlying cause needs to be identified , since you are a diabetic, get your blood sugar levels checked and keep them under control with medications, diet and exercises.
Avoid too hot or food and drinks.
Visit your treating physician so that he can examine you and advise accordingly.
