    If I were an American Baptist minister, I'd say it was because you kiss too many whores, and you have sinned! I would rant and rave at you in my sermons, and I'd talk in gibberish to scare the temptation to sin from your soul.

    I'm not an American Baptist minister, because I believe in the Big Bang Theory, as a show and a scientific concept, so I'm just throwing it out there: you don't brush your teeth enough and you keep biting your lips etc. Or you somehow get germs into your mouth, by dirty glasses for example. It's all about the germs.

    No it's not, according to my last 3 dentists.

    I keep getting them too... I think it must be diet. Haven't been extremely healthy lately. Or maybe lack of sleep? Hmm

    Eat lots of fruit, don't drink a lot of coke or other fizzy drinks, and get lots of sleep.

    I get them sometimes, they're always caused by stress and/or not enough fruit.

    Your mouth is full of nerves- an ulcer is simply a wound and so the nerves are directly in contact with whatever you eat/do- hence why it hurts so much.

    I personally leave them to get better- they do go away eventually- eating healthily helps

    You go through dentists like the OP goes through ulcers.

    Zinger.

    But seriously, that's what it is. Atleast some of the time. Often when I use dirty glasses, as provided abroad by lazy bartenders, it happens to me.

    A correlation, see?

    LOL. The reason for the dentists is that they start off as NHS and then go private!

    Probably either vitamin deficiency and/or some sort of infection (viral/bacterial/fungal).

    Try using an anti-bacterial mouth wash, TCP is my favourite

    If you haven't changed eating/drinking habits recently it could be down to stress, are you worried about exam results or anything? I had about 4 at one point during exam period. Ouch.

    You might be anaemic.
    This is why I got them, went away when I started to take iron tablets

    [QUOTE=Isambard Kingdom Brunel]I had one on the inside right of my lower lip last week, yet since the past couple of days I have 2 major ulcers in the inside left of the lower lip! :mad:

    It is very uncomfortable, I cannot even open my mouth properly to eat, and all my drink has to be sucked through a straw on the oppsite side.

    I applied Corsodyl dental gel tonight but tbh I've given up. It's two weeks now without anything getting better. I dont even remember what its like to have a normal mouth now.

    I cannot even brush my teeth on the bottom set, as the brush touches the ulcers.[/QUOTE]

    Some fruit can actually be bad for an ulcer.

    Avoid all acidic fruits such as pineapples as these will make it worse.

    Also avoid any form of carbonated drinks.

    I find Bonjela to be little more then a temporary pain relief. Other have recommended rinsing your mouth with salt water as that can help but will hurt like hell.


    The ultimate way to remove an ulcer is Bonjela Once. http://www.mouth-ulcer.co.uk/bonjela_once/index.php

    this stuff will literally nuke any mouth ulcer. Ive only ever used it once on an ulcer that I had for over 2 weeks and would not go away. Blasted it with this stuff and it was gone the next day. but be *warned* when you put that stuff on it, it will hurt like hell, garenteed.

    It's not eating sugary stuff (as mummy told me, and lied) it can actually be due to stress - i get them when i'm run down and/or stressed.

    Bonjela is a god send, it really does work. :awesome:

    I know where you're coming from with the immense pain. Stress and abrasions in my mouth are normal causes. My dentist said that hormone levels also cause it. She recommended "Adcortyl in orabase" which you can buy over the counter at pharmacy. Brill stuff.

    I agree- this stuff is great. Frador too (but be prepared for it to sting like hell when you put it on!)

    I've suffered from mouth ulcers for as long as I can remember.. I think I even had them when I was like 2. I eat pretty healthily, so I don't think it's caused by bad diet.. I often get them when I'm a bit run down, although my doctor suggested I could be a bit anaemic too. This website's got some other possible causes:
