About the Mouth Ulcers Home Page

This web site is a public knowledge base for prevention, treatment and causes of mouth ulcers and associated ailments. I hope information contained herein is of benefit to new, young and long-term sufferers alike.

I am not a doctor, and am not employed by pharmacuetical organisations

The views expressed on the message board are of those submitting the messages - it is monitored electronically and by a real person so spam, junk and irrelevant or irritating messages are removed quickly.

I prefer to keep the site open to all, without requiring registration and user log-in. It is for the common good, I hope you find it helpful.    Dom Walton.


1999 - The Mouth Ulcers Home Page was originally set up. Shortly afterwards the domain mouthulcers.co.uk was purchased (the .org and .com were already taken by spammers with irrelevant sites that spawned endless pop-ups for mobile phone deals and on-line casinos.

May 2001 - Message board was introduced, which is now the most informative part of the site.

Spring 2002 - the site physically moved on to an Apache server, and FileMaker server within my own premises, such that when something gets broken the repair time is a lot shorter (or should be!).

September 2002 - Introduction of on-line causes and treatments surveys, and purchase of the .org domain which eventually became available.

October 2002 - at last we can now be found on Yahoo!
