I’ve been getting mouth ulcers. They last a while and get really big. The pain is pretty bad and sometimes i can feel it in my head and throughout my body. Do you think it’s from stress f work/covid?

Could be stress related or drinking more coffee/ increased acidity. I’ll get them every so often, and depending on where in mouth, you can kinda bite it. It may bleed a little but the pain will subside.

I’ve found the numbing meds don’t do much for long. I’ve also tried Alum which is used to pickle veggies, so in theory pulls some of the moisture from the ulcer, which also helps. This can be found in the spice aisle at the market.

If you mean canker sores (or even if not) it could be your toothpaste, or more specifically, the SLS in your toothpaste.

15 years ago I was getting cankers so bad that I couldn’t speak or eat without pain. Somehow I discovered or read that it could be the sodium lauryl sulfate in my toothpaste; it’s in almost all toothpastes.

I started brushing with SLS-free Verve Ultra and the cankers stopped immediately. Now I get maybe two or three a year. (As opposed to 5-6 at a time without a break.)

I hope that’s your problem because the solution is easy.

It’s also on Amazon.

Likely from stress. Possibly from diet. What does your history suggest? I used to get stress ulcers as a student during finals.

I have been having a lot lately. I read it could be stress-related, due to lack of sleep, gastric issues, IBS, or overall imbalance in your gut flora. Try to eat healthy, more veggies, identify a possible intolerance, work out more, eliminate or deal with sources of stress and sleep a bit more

A very good friend of mine used to have this issue and was recommended an antiviral by the doc that I think helped

I don’t remember the name but I was surprised by the recommendation, as was she—but they were trying to do everything they could to prevent rather than simply treat

Thanks everyone!

Ger some adcortyl in orabase. Can’t remember if it’s OTC or Rx, but can remember how good it is.

Mine were caused by stress in a previous job. I changed careers and now I very rarely get them. Ask your doctor for Magic Mouth Wash.

Also try acidophilus (dietary supplement) when you know it's coming and before it gets bad.

Probably stress, could also be GI issue flare. That was my first symptom before I was diagnosed with Crohn's.

Stop using whitening toothpaste.
