Craters

4 messages in this subject.

Does anyone get left with a crater like scar after a particularily bad ulcer? Iíve a massive scar inside my lip, looks like a lunar landing. Also, I am wondering if Iíll get other ulcers on it. I am a bit scared that when I get massive ones along my gum line then my gums will slowly be eroded/eaten away........ Think Iím getting a bit gloomy about it all now.
Anyway, let me know your thoughts :-)

Hi Lucie,

I get exactley what you are describing. The only helpful thing that happens is that because there is a small flap of skin left on one side of the crater (they always seem to form like shallow pockets in my mouth), these will generally get in the way, as iím not used to them and another ulcer will come and devour it.

Sounds so pleasant doesnít it!

Iím left with odd little ridges that werenít there 5 years ago, some you can see (like one on the edge of my tongue - how embarrasing when I cheekily put my tongue out at a friend and they said íEurgh, what happened to your tongue!?!?!) and others only iím aware of.

I worry about ones on the edges of my gums too, just try to avoid them at all costs when brushing, i have a vague notion this angers them and makes them spread further down, away from the tooth.

Anyway, youíre not alone. =-D

You are not the only one that gets left with scars. I had the biggest ulcer ever last summer - the scar is now beginning to fade. Iíve only had once since in that area, it was much smaller and didnít seem to be on the scar line. I donít think you should worry too much.
