If I have an Ulcer in my mouth, it's one of three reasons:

1) I drank a soft drink/soda
2) I had a cut in my mouth
3) I am about to get sick or am already sick

I've had ulcers for over 20 years and I've only been able to figure out those three causes until here recently.
My worst outbreaks come from drinking soft drinks like Coke or Pepsi or Dr. Pepper. I've also found that drinking Red Bull give me ulcers (not wings!) as well. I'm not sure if it has a similar ingredient to soft drinks.

Luckily, I can avoid soft drinks and I can be careful not to cut my mouth but unfortunately I have no control over getting sick so I will never be ulcer free I suppose. But at least I know where they come from for me.

I have found that Diet Dr. Pepper is the only drink that gives me ulcers. Only on the tip of my tongue. I tried Diet Coke, and it did not have the same effect. I think I will have to stop the diet dr pepper.

I don't drink sodas to often, but when I get a mouth ulcer ido... For me it burns a little at first and then numbs it....

Crisps and cola aren't good. Their also bad for your health. Why not try fruit and water? And the perfect cure for tongue ulcers is lysine!
hope the lysine works!

I suffer from the occasional Ulcer, and can confirm that I'm fine with Coca Cola, however if I drink more than a can of Pepsi (e.g 2 pints) then within 2 days a Ulcer will start to devlop. Anyone here aware of what different ingredients are in Pepsi but not in Coca Cola?

avoid all carbonated drinks, I was advised to do this by a dentist years ago because of mouth ulcers, if I lapse up pops an ulcer. Recently started making gingerbeer, thought that would be OK but oh no, mouth full of ulcers in no time!

I started drinking soda pop again, after I stopped drinking soda pop altogether for over a year. It was very hard to quit. I know people are aware of the dangers of nicotene, alcohol & narcotics, but caffeine & soda are a negative addictiion too. Soda pop is the only vice I have. When I don't drink soda pop, I do NOT get mouth ulcers, but as soon as I start drinking soda pop the mouth ulcers come back again. I can't prove it, but I know there is a connection between the mouth ulcers & the soda pop because I'm living with it. I fell off my health kick & it's time I get back on it. The Soda companies are a multi-billion dollar franchise so don't hold your breath waiting for the media to come clean with how bad this stuff really is for you. Just because it's legal, cheap & abundant does not mean it's not killing you.

COLA IS FULL OF ARGININE AND IT MAY BE SWITCHING ON A VIRUS IN YOUR BODY... COLD SORES ARE ONE VERSION OF ORAL HERPES..

THAT IS ONE POSSIBILITY .
ARGININE AND LYSINE ARE CONSIDERED TO HAVE OPPOSITE EFFECTS ON THESE VIRI. INCREASING LYSINE LEVELS SWITCHES THESE VIRI OFF. INCREASING THE ARGININE SWITCHES THEM BACK ON.

IT'S WORTH LOOKING AT..

OTHER ARGININE HIGH FOODS INCLUDE BEANS, NUTS, CHOCOLATE,

THERE ARE SOME LISTS OUT THERE THAT SHOW THE ARGININE/LYSINE RATIOS IN VARIOUS FOODS.

ALSO, STRESS AND EXTRA SUNLIGHT TEND TO SWITCH ON VIRI IF INDEED THAT IS THE SOURCE OF THE MOUTH ULCERS.

I've had a huge Coke habit for 20 years. My tongue and mouth are ALWAYS hurting. I went to sugar free Coke and it got better. But, recently went off the wagon and drank Coke with sugar and my mouth is raging. My daughter has geographic tongue and also always has a sore tongue. I frequently have thrush and thought it was from the sugar in the Coke.

I have cut down on fizzy drinks for a few months now and everytime I drink them now I can mouth ulcers on the tip of my tougue. I can't believe what I am reading as I have been drinking them for years without any issues!
Hins 4 February 11
I find that while i drink coke i have no ulcers, but if i try to give it up then 2 or 3 days later my mouth and tongue will be covered in ulcers to the point where it hurts to talk so i start drinking it again and they go away.... does anyone else have any problems like that?
rach 19 January 11
I have found that actually, it's not fizzy drinks, it's the ingredient that is generally in cheaper fizzy drinks but is also in Dr Pepper - Sodium Benzoate. I've suffered with ulcers ever since suffering Glandular Fever 3 years ago and it took the Doctors 1 of those years to figure out that Sodium Benzoate was the culprit! It's not just in pop, it's a preservative so be careful - I'm sure that for many of you, this is your problem. NB - The code is E211 - Sodium Benzoate - Food/drink preservative!

Fizzy drinks cause my ulcers to flare up, I got tested a few year back & found I am allergic ti Sodium Benzoate, which is in 98% of fizzy drinks .... (funnily enough non diet coca cola doesn't have this) ... but pretty much ALL other fizzy (and a lot of non fizzy) drinks have it. I now only drink: Water, tea, coffee or beer :o

(also allergic to Cinnamon which caused em to flare).
Derek 18 December 10
because its nearing christmas my partner has been buying shit loads of coke and other fizzy drinks, so naturally weve been drinking them alot haha
after reading these comments I guess I can blame fizzy drink on the mouth uclers and tingling ive been getting the past few days.
Does the diet ones cause it too? :p
Tika. 16 December 10
fanta cause the ulcers for me, but pure alcohol (95%vol) on them before bed will burn like hell for a second, than numb it, so it won't hurt at all after that and in the morning it will be gone!!

I wonder, though, if it's the drinking or the period afterward that's the problem. If I drink a can of pop and then drink some milk or lots of water, I wonder if it would help or if the damage has already been done.

From Pauline 2 Weeks on
I stopped drinking coke 2 weeks ago successfully......... well almost successfully............ except for maybe 2 cans in 2 weeks. I致e only had one fairly minor ulcer during that time when normally I would have a mouth full. I知 still a bit dubious though I can稚 believe the answer would be something so simple as cutting out coke. I知 going to continue avoiding it and I値l keep you updated..
PS. Thanks Dom for a brilliant site.
Pauline 12 June 03
soooooooo, coke and pepsi may be the bastards that ae causing these fuckers, i drink at least 1 can everyday at work or when i go gym of just if i知 out and thirsty, i better stop drinkin fizzy drinks, i値l have a 1 week trial, i dont think i値l be able to handle that but i値l try, i値l let you know how i get on......
Imran Leic/Eng 11 June 03
i agree with andy pauline, i happen to agree with you, i never ever seem to have just one ulcr there is always more then 3 at any one time, i do find that drinking coke does help if only to numb the suckers for a short while so i can have a decent conversation without grunting and nodding and shaking my head. think everyone should give it a go. also try sucking on polo mints that helps me and sometimes is the only thing i can eat. xx
Lydia Eng 11 June 03
I love coke and have once mouth ulcer for past few days. It痴 been killing me!!! I get really crankly. Brushing, gargling, sometimes, drinking water hurts it so much. I used 韮onjela says to ease the pain of ulcers. Applying it to the ulcer was 念UCH.... my friend suggested putting salt to the ulcer....don稚 know if it helps to ease the pain later....though she said that it will hurt when the action痴 taking place.

In reply to Andy
Yeah, I find the cold, sparkling sensation of coke does really sooth my mouth when it is full of ulcers.... I am though now beginning to think that coke & other sparkling drinks may cause them. I am addicted to diet coke and pepsi and have at least 1 or 2 cans a day. I知 35 now and have drunk it since 17ish....maybe I should give it up and see if my ulcers improve...... I値l let you know...
Pauline 27 May 03
Well since everyone seems to think coca cola and other sodas are bad when it comes to the recovery and onset of ulcers, my message may seem outta place...I like to drink coke when i have ulcers, it hurts at first then kind of numbs them, and if i continue to drink it, it keeps them numb for a short period of time. Does anyone else do the same?
Andy 22 May 03
As a bit of an 弾xpert on ulcers (having spent many many hours researching the subject of food triggers and talking to professors at Guy痴 Hospital London about this (where I am currently being treated for mouth ulcers)I can say that crisps and coke do tend to bring on attacks of ulcers with me, yes, most definately - especially crisps of any nature. Guy痴 view was that most fizzy drinks should be avoided if poss due to the acidic nature... I also find personally things like salad cream, mayonnaise, pickles etc.. can also bring on attacks which further enhances the acidic view ..
Paul Cooksley 22 May 03
I also agree that maybe it is the fizzy pop! That is the only thing that has been consistant with me for the last couple of months of trying to locate the food trigger. I used to drink Diet Coke, then I stopped and currently I drink sparkling water, soda water or on occassion Coke. If I can give up the fizzy sodas for a while, I will report on my findings.
Cristen 22 May 03
The only thing I have changed in the last few weeks is that I have started drinking Coke and I have mouth ulcers. I am going to stop drinking coke!
Sandra 22 May 03
Probably the coke isn稚 very healthy for your body either, try water and milk ;)
Jem 17 April 03
i am 21 and the only drink i drink is coca cola, i have suffered with mouth ulcers for about 10 years at the moment i have 7 ulcers, 1 very painful one on my tongue and some on my throat i am very down about them at the moment, i was thinking the same, could it be the fizzy pop??
rachel 25 March 03
coca cola (or fizzy drinks in general) in combination with crisps lead to certain infection with mouth ulcers. i was wondering if anyone else had noticed this??
