What are the Common Causes of Mouth Ulcers? Although the actual causes of the mouth ulcers are still unknown, below mentioned are some of the most common causes that are associated with them. Food allergy and trauma: Injury that is caused due to tooth brushing or any kind of hot beverages and foods can lead to mouth ulcers. Also, some people are allergic to certain foods that can result in mouth ulcers. Intestine and stomach diseases: People who suffer from constipation or some gastrointestinal diseases also get mouth ulcers. Having insufficient amount of sleep: People who do not sound sleep are also prone to the mouth ulcers. Stress: It is noted that many students suffer from mouth ulcers during the exam time because of stress. Many adult individuals also suffer from ulcers if they are stressed from long time. How to Treat Mouth Ulcers? One of the home remedies that you can try, is to apply honey or glycerin on the mouth ulcers for around 5-6 times a day.

  • Decrease Stress  An exercise, a 30- minute walk, yoga or meditation help in reducing stress and also boost up the immune system.
  • Take a good night sleep.
  • If the burning sensation over the ulcers is more, make sure to apply the ulcer gels available in the pharmacy stores. There are over the counter gels available in the stores and will give you relief in around 2-3 hours. Consume a healthy nutritional diet.

Is there anything to worry about?

  • If these ulcers all heal by themselves but come in every 1-2 months, then a definitive treatment is necessary.
  • If your ulcers take a long time in healing, then it may be a cause of an underlying medical condition that needs to be paid attention to.

If any of the above condition persists, visit your dentist or an Oral Medicine specialist at the earliest and take a definitive treatment. Do not let any disease harm you. Always seek a medical advice and kick off the disease.
