Dear parent,
Thanks for your query.
Putting Betnesol oral drops once or twice, directly on the ulcer may relieve the pain but should not be used frequenly. Give the child vitamin B complex syrup for few days and to relieve the pain use local gel containing choline salisylate(Zytee gel).

Dear Sir, My mother has developed some ulcers in her mouth for the past five years. She is not able to eat anything because of this. We have tried lot of docotrs and thier medicines. But there is no use. We have even scanned her throught , but there is nothing to worry. These ulcers have developed because of the heat caused by the various types of tablets daily for the past 20-25 years for her diebetic & other ailments. This is Doctor s findings. Kindly advice me a medicine wchich can cure her mouth ulcers, so that she can at least eat.

sometime hopefully this month i ll be getting a biopsy done to see if the black dots in my mouth are cancerous or not.. i read from people that these are super painful, but sadly the insurance company will only pay for the use of anesthetics (?) once a year.. is there a strong pain medicine i can take in place? if so, can they be crushed up or come in liquid form? i cannot swallow pills. i am an 18 years old female. sorry for being a burden but i am just scared..

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
