Suggest remedy for recurring mouth ulcers with white patches on roof of mouth

I have had mouth ulcers that come and go and a lot of pain in my cheeks like a razor raw feeling when I eat. Plus the roof of my mouth looks like it has a white patchy look to it. My gums get red and swollen and I only feel better with steroids. I had a deep cleaning and had a biopsy to check for lichen planis but it came back negative. I ve seen every specialist you can think of and no one knows what it is. I am in constant pain when it flares up which is every 3 weeks or so I cannot eat or drink anything when it flares up also. I don t know what to do. Hope you can help :( Can a slightly enlarged spleen cause this to happen as I heard somewhere that it can?

Hello,

You may be suffering from apthous ulcers. Which may be due to unknown cause or bechets syndrome.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Avoid caffeinated drinks, sleep well, use capsule becosules once a day for ten days.

Use salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Use vitamin c tablet once a day for five days.

If no improvement please consult with your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu
