What causes mouth ulcers?

Hi my tears aren't salty and I have mouth sores that refuse to heal (it has been a week since they started) what is wrong? I'm a 21 year old female normal weight and height and have never been to the hospital for anything other than Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Hello,

Thanks for consulting HCM

Read your query, as you have ulcers in mouth this ulceration can be due to medical condition IBS related , Nutritional deficiency , stress related , Drug induced .
I will suggest you to consult oral surgeon and go for examination of oral cavity and rule out the cause of ulceration, in meantime you can apply ointment Mugel or Mucopain gel on ulcers , you can take vitamin B complex by consulting with your doctor .

Hope this will help you.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for using Health Care Magic.

Read your query.

The mouth sores as you have mentioned can be stress related and usually recurrent.

I would suggests you few things which may be beneficial for you.

*For the sores you can apply dentogel/mucopain Or any oral topical anesthetic agents two or three times till the symptoms reduce.They should heal in a week or so .If persistent consult your dentist.

* Lead a stress free life to reduce the recurrence .

*Do antiseptic mouth wash gargling.avoid spicy or too much hot food .

*Take Multivitamin and also digestive problems will also cause the occurrence of the ulcers.Have Irritable Bowel Syndrome cured.

Hope this was useful.
Thanks and regards.
