Painful ulcer on gums, taking becosules, cause. Can I use smile gel?

Hi, I am a 27 year old female. I developed an ulcer on the tongue last week which healed after applying smile gel. Now a small white circle has formed on my lower front gum and on the skin joining my lower front gum and lip. It is extremely painful. Will smile gel heal this as well? Also are canker sores or gums sores the same as mouth / tongue ulcers? I had started taking becosules a week before? Could the becosules have caused the tongue ulcer and gum sores, as I very rarely get them otherwise? Thank you for the help.

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you might have apthous ulcer.
Only smile gel is not enough.
Go for antibiotic medicine and B.complex and lactobacillus sachets.
Do salt water gargle frequently.
Ok and bye.

Dentist Dr. Imran Warind's  Response
The most common ulcers fitting your symptoms would be apthous ulcers or canker sores. And usually becosules do not cause them, instead help them heal. The most common causes of apthous ulcers are:

Lack of sufficient sleep or sudden changes in sleep patterns,

Deficiency of B vitamins, zinc and/or iron,

Hormonal changes,

and most importantly STRESS.

Proper rest and lifestyle pattern should help prevent further ulcers and you can continue with becosules/beplex forte for healing of the current ones. You can also apply mucopain gel to help with the burning/painful sensation from the ulcers. If the ulcers still don't resolve after another 2 weeks or increase in number, severity or size, get them examined clinically.
