Hi, I have been having ulcer-like developments on my tongue its been continuing for the past three days. I had been taking B-Complex but since it was not effective, i visited a doctor who prescribed Metrogyl400. I do not face any bowel and stomach problems, should I still take this tablet for my tongue ulcer?
Hi & Welcome to HCM. I appreciate your concern for the role of Metrogyl in the treatment of tongue ulcer.
Yes, Metrogyl is effective to eradicate the anaerobic bacteria that may cause infection in presence of aphthous ulcer, you may continue to take a course of it. Besides this you should also have Sporolac powder and local anesthetic containing gels which are usually prescribed along with metronidazole for the effective treatment of Aphthous ulcer.
Hope to have answered your query.
