Ulcer that wonít go away22 messages in this subject.
|For as long as I can remember, I have gotten a ulcer here and there- usually if I cut my mouth on something. Lately I have them constantly, never one, usually 5 or so. They hurt, but usually it is tolerable until I got this huge ulcer on the skin that connects the tounge to the throat that is the size of a dime. I have had it for 5 weeks now, and I see no end in site. Is it normal for them to last this long? I went to the doctor for these ulcers and he said it was probably stress and gave me some lidocaine. He did do a blood test, but everything seemed ok. I just want this one huge one to go away, because it hurts every time I talk, and I like to talk.|

|Iíve had an ulcer in my throat that wouldnít go away for weeks. The Dr said that it had turned into a bacterial infection and put me on antibiotics. It was gone in about 4 days|

|all I know is when I have them in my throat.I also get yeast in my mouth.my throat hurts when I swallow.I donít know but the infectious desease doctor gave me Acyclovir and it works|

|Prednisone will usually help clear it up. HTH 30-40mg for 6-7days usually you will find relief in the first 24hrs from the pain and withing the next 48 for the actual sore to go away. Best wishes|

I am 48 and recently experiencing canker sores. I have gone to my primary doctor and several specialists and no luck. I am very frustrated because I cannot eat. I cannot taste my food. Everything has a metallic taste. I have lesions on the sides on my mouth. When I swallow, it feels like the tissue in my mouth is flaking off. I have tried so many remedies and nothing works. Are there so old fashion remedies that could help me. Thank you for hearing my story.

|Iíve had multiple ulcers down my throat before and it was agonising! Finally, I took the advice of a friend doing her PhD in Pharmacy, which was to drink fresh orange juice. Apparently, the acidity kills the germs. So I bared with the intense pain for a couple of days and was rewarded for that effort :-)|
Other old-fashioned remedies are gargling with warm salt water. This helps ease the pain; in fact there is very little pain when you wash the sore with salt water. Normal water from the tap, however, can send you in spasms!
Apparently, there is no cure. You just have to let it heal on its own. The only ĒcureĒ is to stay hydrated and that means drinking gallons of water. Cold water helps more, I find.

|another drug that some docs use to help fight recurrent ulcers is Colchicine. Itís a drug used to treat gout but many who have Behcetís and suffer from recurring ulcers take it and find that it helps. Check out www.behcets.com Best wishes!|

|There is a cure....it just has to be found! |
Conjunctivitous in the eyes is exactly the same thing...and I rid myself of that after having it for 10 years! Sometimes I couldnít even see it was so bad.

|I just got my first canker sore about four weeks ago. I am 60 years old. I woke up inthe morning with this huge lump on the side of my tongue. I might have bit my tongue during the night or it might just have show up I really canít say. This is my problem, IT WONĒT GO AWAY! I though it was gone after about two weeks, the bump went down the shallow ucler closed up and I was good to go. Thene about a week later it came back in the same exact place on my tongue! Now the ulcerated part is gone but there is still a small indented part on my tongue that it very sensitive. My question is this, How long can these things last? can they reappear inthe same exact place? Should I take some antibiotics I.E. penicillin to help cure it? Iím not in severe pain like most of you, but I just want this thng to GET OFF OF MY TONGUE! Please respond to my email address in case I canít find this again.. I am not to computer literate :( email@example.com|

|i have had this ulcer in my mouth for several months now it just wonít go away! i know it has been here for at least 7 months. i donít know what it is|
|Jaklyn 9 December 06|
|Jaklyn - If that is true that you have had it for 7 months you need to get to a doc and get that biopsied. They can take up to 6-8wks to heal and they donít worry but any longer and it could be a sign of something a little more severe. BEST WISHES|

|i have mouth ulcers for the past 4 days.I am 43yrs and this is my first experince of having them.Nothing seems to work, i have stopped taking anti-biotics, and salt and water dont seem to do the job. I guess it heals by its self. This is the only way, well for now.Any suggestions?|

|My brother has a big ugly ulcer on his lower lip. He has had it off and on for the past five years. It will crust up and look like it's healing, then the next time I see him it is just as bad as ever. He has been to several doctors about it, and he did get a biopsy, which came back negative for cancer. Once they find out it isn't cancer the doctors seem to lose interest. I don't think my brother pushes hard enough for a solution, but this thing is horrible. Can you name any condition other than cancer that might cause this?|

|Could be lack of adequate rest. Do you drink lots of coffee or things that wake you up? No rest from stimulants can cause fatigue. Might also be from too much acidity. My mouth feels very acidic when I get them|

|If I have just found out my vitamin D is low. My front teeth went bad very quickly. I know vitamin D when low is dangerous for oral health. The only thing that is scaring me it was months ago before this all happened that sores started off and on then would be excruciating pain. Nothing seems to work for long. Of course I am worrying about cancer these ulcerated sores are under my lips not on outside at all. One more thing if hurts people told me it can't be cancerous. Is that true.|

|Put little himalayan salt it will help. I have had mouth sore most of my life. I had up to 21 at on time. The doctor said something making immune system weak. He told me stop eating peas chip and fruit. Found out 20 years later I am Hypo-thyroid. A THS test they want treat If your ranges between 0.5 to 5.0. I reach 5. treat it with Amour. I never gain weight because. I study how to heal myself because doctors tell you you'll never beat it. If your THS is over 2. you have a problem thyroid problem. Make sure you eating enough foods with Selenium magnesium Iodine. I eat lot of fruits now and not more ulcers. If you take vitamins make sure they quality research everything .

|I recently got sick with a sore throat, chills, and a fever. I was drinking hot tea and I burnt the roof of my mouth pretty bad, and I initially thought the pain of the burn wasn't going away, and then I saw on the roof of my mouth had sores all over it. Now my mouth has probably 20 ulcers on the roof of my mouth and my tongue making it extremely painful to talk or eat. The only way I have been able to stay at work is with oragel numbing gel, which really hurts when initially applying it. I have been to the doctor twice, and I am on antibiotics & he gave me some sort of topical paste (oracort triamcinolone) and said the pain should subside in 2 days. It has now been a week and I have only been drinking meal replacements because it is so painful to eat or talk. I just want the sores to go away already I cant do anything normally and it is unbearable. I have tried, mouthwash, salt water, essential oils, and alum powder, nothing seems to help or make the pain go away. PLEASE HELP !!!!!!|

|I have an 8 week old 5mm size ulcer caused by a toothbite, which has healed except for a 1 mm size portion of the ulcer on the side has not healed and keeps changing shape slightly with colour switching between white and light brown. Remaining ulcer has healed. ENT specilists and Oral surgeon rule out cancer and have not done a biopsy. They have asked me to use a cream Kenacort 0.1 % which contains steroidal cream, but it has not helped. Pl advise|
