Mouth ulcers also known as canker sores or aphthous ulcers they can be surprisingly painful but the good news is I’m going
to teach you how to treat it mouth ulcers have painful sores inside
the mouth they’re usually red or yellow leaving a
crater where pain sensors are more exposed now if you’re unsure that you’ve
got a mouth ulcer I’ve left some great links in the description below which
have loads of pictures and descriptions which will help you now some of the
causes include oral trauma, hormone changes, iron deficiencies,
vitamin deficiencies and even genetic factors now I’ll leave the full list in
the description below as well as when you should seek medical attention
I’d recommend everyone to read this now the good news is that most mouth ulcers
heal by themselves within 10 to 14 days but I know they can be super
uncomfortable so if you want to try something to help get rid of the pain
here’s treatments and preventions so treatment number one steroid lozenges
these are quite effective at relieving the pain and they may also make the
mouth ulcer heal quicker treatment two chlorhexidine mouthwash
now this isn’t effective at helping to relieve the pain however it can help the
mouth ulcer recover quicker and also prevent it from becoming infected now it
is important to remember that if you’re using chlorhexidine mouthwash regularly
it can stain the teeth brown but it’s not usually permanent and there are ways
that you can reduce the risk of this I’ll leave more information about this in the
description below now my top tip whether you do use chlorhexidine mouthwash or
steroid lozenges whichever remember to use it as soon as you start to feel the
mouth also developing that way it has the best chance of preventing it from
developing fully and also speeds up recovery time now the next treatments
don’t really prevent the mouth ulcer from fully forming instead they’re more
useful for pain relief so these include soothing protective pastes, paracetamol,
ibuprofen, numbing sprays and mouth washes which include benzydamine
and also saltwater mouthwashes now I’ll leave more information in the
description below on how to prepare this and as always with all medication
always read the information leaflet and speak to your pharmacist to make sure that you’re
suitable to use it now apart from treatments did you know that there are
there are various things that you can actually avoid which
cause mouth ulcers so for example don’t bite the inside of your cheeks and
speak to your dentist about badly fitting braces, badly fitting dentures,
rough fillings and sharp teeth and other things you can do are brushing your
teeth gently using a soft bristled toothbrush, avoid irritating toothpastes
and also try to stress less if you can now I’ll leave some really useful links in
the description below which teach you techniques on how to do this if you want
read it and also try to get more sleep 7 to 8 hours per night some medication can
also cause mouth ulcers so if you think it may be the cause then speak to your
pharmacist and they can check this for you and that’s the end of this week’s
