Coffee causes ulcers?

44 messages in this subject.

Sun and strong drying winds cause my mouth ulcers on my lips. Coffee doesn’t seem to cause inner mouth ulcers for me.
Lack of B vitamins, detergent on cups.... not rinsed properly.if you love drinking coffee, drink plenty of water during the day.... that might help to flush out toxins.

Terry Harp... I too have the symptoms you have... my whole mouth is burning and more so when I drink coffee... it feels like an allergic reaction. I have been drinking coffee for 40 years now; I only drink 2 cups a day. I am drinking organic fair trade coffee with organic grass fed creamer for a while so I know it's not the type of coffee or creamer cause this just popped up a few months ago and I just put together it was the coffee. Doesn't matter what kind of coffee I drink or creamer I use; the same outcome happens and I am so upset that this is happening. I have quit junk sugar; processed foods and wheat... why oh why do I have to quit my coffee!!! I want some salvation... and coffee is my treat!! So not sure what I am going to do... I just checked my PH and it is 6.5+... what it always has been (it should be a little higher but I thought it may be acidity). I am clueless; I have no mouth cankers or sores; it my whole dang mouth and throat!! Tea does not bother it and I use raw honey too and I know it is not that.

I started drinking coffee (espresso) back in 2000. I have never had a problem with any sort of mouth issues until 6 months ago. That is like 16+ years without an issue. I changed toothpaste which helped a little, but did not solve. I quit smoking my beloved cigars which also had little effect. However, I got sick last week and just couldn't get out to the espresso machine. After about 3 days my mouth was nearly completely recovered. Now, after two days of espresso shots, my mouth is back to feeling burned by everything that isn't an ice cube again. This is very upsetting. Any advice would surely be appreciated.

I have to avoid all kinds of tea. Also using toothpaste that doesn't have sodium laurel sulfate helps.

Coffee caused mouth ulcers is related to a mineral found in Central, South and North American coffee beans. If you like coffee as I do, then stop drink coffee grown on those three continents. You can drink African, Asian and Central European coffees without a problem. Also if you drink a coffee whose beans were from one of the American Continents, you can take a regiment of Lysine (an amino acid that combats the mineral's effect) for 3-4 days to get rid or prevent the canker sore. One last note - after drinking the non-American coffees for a while I was able to distinguish the taste of "American" coffees that would cause canker sores from those that were grown else where in the world.

Toothpaste with Sodium Laurel Sulfate is often the problem and switching to a toothpaste for sensitive teeth should help. Causes for me are also diet coke and fruit drinks. My favorite drinks, of course.

I am 54 years old and have had cankers sores off and on. But recently I have been having them quite frequently. I do not drink large amounts of coffee but I have found that if I do drink a cup a day for a length of time that I develop the canker sores. Very painful as you all know and very frustrating to have. Have been using a oral gel or salt and water to try and alleviate the pain.

I've had cankers for 2 yrs...have tried everything nothing works pls someone help!!!im asp a brital diabetic I've wore a pp for 18 yrs.Pls can someone help me???i get them every other week!!!Driving me crazy!!!

Everyone is different, and also, things change. I used to take long breaks from coffee, and then have better luck with cankers, and have them return when I drank coffee again. Now I drink coffee all the time, and only have occasional problems. Using a STEROIDAL gel, prescribed to me from a doctor specifically for canker sores has been my life-saver. Ask your doctor/dentist/dermatologist about a clear steroidal gel. At the first sign of apthous, apply to the sore. Or, if you get a cut or wound in the mouth, apply to prevent. It has been a life changer for me.

I definitely think coffee causes canker sores. It's acidic and if your body is sensitive to acids, it'll react. I have to quite drinking coffee for awhile every now and then because I run into the same problem.
Chelsea 10 July 15
So I started looking into the acidity of coffee ( even though its not the cause of my canker sores I do believe the acidy is part of the problem especially since I drink it excessively) they say the darker roast/arabica coffee is less acidic and the worse ones are the chesaer brands/medium roast. Also ive read that adding a pinch of baking soda to the coffee grounds when brewing helps neutralize the acidity. Recently I started drinking a little baking soda water first thing in the morning before my coffee and I really thinks its helped, I even ate tons of tomato sauce with meatball and spicy food and so far no canker sores, its too soon to tell but apparently bakimg soda keep the stomach acid and blood at its idea ph level because it becomes to acid that maybe causing cakers. Im inly reffering to he alumminum free kind that is extracted wih natural process ( not chemically derived) I found in the health food store but I hear most supermarket carry in the bakimg section.
Pam 28 June 15
I drink tons of coffee every single day (I know its bad I just love it so much and cant stop myself) but honestly dont think its the cause of my canker sores. I'm in my 30s but have suffered from canker sores since I was 3-4 years old and only started drinking coffee when I was 18. I feel like it has to be something else I'm eating. Others have mention that soy or gluten could be the culprit, very interestimg and will look into that.
Pam 23 June 15
I have had canker sores as long as I can remember 55 now ,never been a coffe drinker but started drinking some this winter canker sores went away. Stared a vacation first part of May got a canker sore , thought it was because i ate tomatoes while cooking out. Ended up with 2 that week started thinking what else had changed had quit drinking coffe because of being on vacation on getting hot .so wondering if coffe in small amounts could help just started again will see if it helps
Jackie 17 June 15
I've always had an issue with it, no matter the coffee brand, but rinsing my mouth regularly (1ce daily or every-other day) with an anti-bacterial mouthwash like Listerine has always prevented the ulcers for me.
Deb 15 June 15
I get mouth ulcer by drinking coffee, tea or milk. Now am 37 year. Since last 22 years am facing this problem. No proper solution even from doctor.

i never had a problem with coffee causing acid blisters or sores in my mouth until i drank gevalia if thats the correct spelling. Dunkin and Green Mountain does not seem to bother me. You may try different brands.

Well caffeine increases stress, so that could cause flare-ups. I have had bad flare-ups of both canker sores and herpes before when I was taking 8 or so 200mg caffeine pills a day for my job/work (8 hours of school, 8 hours of work plus driving).

Hiya! This sounds crazy, but only drip coffee or french press coffee gives me canker sores. I've been getting them really, really badly and consistently for years - the last bout, I had 32 sores in my mouth. I find that if I drink espresso-based drinks, then I don't get them at all. I finally figured this out when I took a 2 month trip to Italy recently, and was blissfully canker sore free even though I was drinking espresso like it was a part-time job. Then, when I came back to the US, BLAMO. Additionally, certain types of beans really kill me. There something in Dunkin Donuts beans that do me in, and Peet's coffee as well. Since I've switched entirely to espresso roast coffees made with an espresso machine, I have not had a canker sore in over 8 months. I think it has to do with the acid content in the ways that the coffee is prepared. I have no clue. All I know is the second I start to drink drip coffee, my mouth explodes.

If the thought of drinking straight espresso makes you cringe, try an Americano. It's just a shot of espresso with hot water, adjusted to your strength preference, and it's fantastico!
danielle 10 October 14

I've had mouth ulcers for 15 years (half of my life) and the only time I do not get them is when I stay away from coffee. I think it really depends on your reaction to certain drinks or foods. I can go without coffee and I notice months in between mouth ulcers. When I do drink coffee, I have a few a week. They are very painful so I am okay with giving up coffee.

Howdy! I am a lifetime (63) canker sore veteran. There have been times when the pain reached new heights...not good. Bottom line...Lidocaine prescribed by my doctor got me through those tough times. Sugar! The villain! Sugar seems to bring them on and coffee/other acids make them worse. Alum diluted/dissolved applied with a Q tip can help. I carry a small bottle of Crest Pro Health mouthwash and after a coffee or a seldom eaten sweet, I swish and spit some mouthwash. This seems to limit the damage. I hope this helps someone:)

I have high blood pressure and noticed my legs swelling uncontrollably and I was getting worried, so I stopped drinking coffee and my legs don't swell any more. I was also getting lower leg ulcers and when I quit they started healing and going away. I believe your body can only handle so much caffeine and when you start to age it starts tearing you down because your body is not as strong as it was before. My advice to the young is never start on caffeine. It may feel good while you young but it will get you when you're old.
Tom 27 May 14
As for me, I ALWAYS drink coffee - like on a daily basis. I always drink tea when I'm in a Chinese restaurant. But that doesn't cause me canker sores. I only get canker sores when I bite my lip or tongue and when I skip taking Vitamin C tablets. Though I still get sores even if I take Vitamin C, but because of it, the sores heal quickly and doesn't go bigger.

So the solution for me is Vitamin C.

Hi. I agree that coffee causes mouth ulcers for me (of course not everyone has this effect). I'm a coffee snob and an addict. Ihave several kind of machine for coffee, i have 3 mokas', some espresso machine too. I collect all kinds of mugs and cups. I drank 4 shots of espresso daily. But I did experimented on not drinking coffee for a month and guess what?.... No more mouth sores. This really makes me sad. Even local Nescafe bought from the groceries causes me ulcers. I dont say that you should stop drinking coffee, i'm just saying my experience. Now and then I still drink coffee and I just ready myself for the ulcer attack 2 days after.
Dog 10 July 13
I started drinking coffee due to graduate school and within the 1st week of drinking coffee, I started getting canker sores. I do get them at times w/o coffee, but have been getting them way more frequently now. They aren't real painful so unless they get bad, I will stick with the coffee stictly because it is healthier than pop and has more caffine than tea!
angie 16 January 13
I started drinking tea every day about 2 years ago and from then have been plagued with mouth ulcers. Recently I cut out the tea and I havent had any ulcers. I read somewhere that tea has antiseptic properties and I wonder if it might be killing off the good bacteria in my mouth and letting the mouth ulcers get in. Might not work for everyone but it sorted me out.
Shaz 28 September 12
I tried not drinking coffee for months and it did not make one difference: ulcers kept coming.

However I have to admit that coffee does aggravates ulcers for me. In my experience this works two ways 1) coffee makes my ulcers hurt more (biting/irritating feeling) and 2) if I take to much coffee it gives me physical stress. Both are not beneficial to the healing process.

My conclusion is that a sufferer of ulcers could do without coffee.

Arthur 13 September 12
I'm a canker sore magnet. every few days i used get 1 or 2 of them (& they would last for like 6-10 days). With my experience I can say having food like coffee, chocolate (not white but regular & dark), pineapples, tomato sauce, or highly greasy food can induce these. So i normally avoid these food as much as I can. But that does not mean they go away completely. Its that if I have these food its like 99% likely for me to wake up the next day with 1 or 2 canker sores in my mouth.
my last doctor gave me some zinc tablets to try out & they appear to be working ok for me as in the frequency of getting sores is quite less...
troubled_user 12 September 12
Friends out there I have been getting mouth ulcers for over 18 years now ,I would get one a week and they would last for days and then come up again.sometimes more than 2 in my mouth at a time it was hell .
I tried everything but nothing worked ,I went to many doctors with no solution .
Then I said to my self a couple of years ago what is it that I drink or eat every day and the only thing was coffee .
The only coffee that affects me is the real stuff from beans and the Latte you get from a cafe.
I can drink Moccona or Nescafé supermarket stuff or Tea no problems but I can drink the good stuff anymore.
I have not had an ulcer for over 2 years now except for a week ago as I had a couple of lattes at my local cafe.
Never again.
I hope this helps someone out there .
You must not drink coffee for more than a month to see if it helps you.
Matthew D 22 November 11
I have had multiple, severe mouth ulcers for every month for the last 5 years and I am only 21.
I tried cutting out tomatoes, strong cheese, all the foods that they suggest cause mouth ulcers. I even bought a toothpaste without SLS (which was very helpful), and tried all the medications under the sun.

Recently I saw one developing and on a complete whim, stopped drinking cups of tea.
It went away within a matter of days.
Couldn't believe it.
Used to have at least 6 cups a day so that's going to have to stop now!

Not sure whether you're talking about just canker sores. Seems some of you are referring to Herpes. I've been getting persistent blistering and burning inside my mouth. No coffee - no problem. (i love coffee...) Anyway the above link lists several foods that can be systematically removed from your diet. Coffee removal resulted in almost complete disappearance of the problem in 2 days. Take a look. It might help. After all it's only coffee :(
Nancy 27 June 11
I drink coffee and, if anything, find that it relieves the pain that the ulcer brings.
Kierano 4 March 11
I was told sea blackthrone oil from the natural food store is suppose to help. A mouth ulcer is caused by the herpes virus mostly stress or biting the inside of ur mouth.u can also use baking soda that helps the stinging. .good luck
denise 14 October 10
I have had mouth ulcers all my life, and I'm now 58. I can get up to 10 at any one time. I must have tried every product on the market, but with no luck. I recently saw an article in the Daily Mail about research revealing that drinking 3 cups of coffe a day can prevent mouth cancer. I have never drunk coffee, always preferring tea, but thought maybe it might have an effect on my mouth ulcers. Surprisingly overnight the ones I had disappeared, and I have been mouth ulcer free now for nearly 3 weeks! wether this is merely a coincidence I don't know. I haven't done or eaten anything different from normal.
Pru 1 July 10
Hi all
I am a big tea drinker and only occasional coffee but really have never found these to be cause of my canker ulcers, more likely I have thought that citrus drinks, tomatoes, strawberries etc which sometimes causes acid reflus and irritation to mouth afterwards, also I find that coloured icecream or sauces ie chocolate, rasperry for icecream, boiling sweets taste brilliant but so much pain afterwards with flare-ups as my mouth reacts quite quickly with tingly swelling, does anyone else out there suffer as I do and thinks that I have allergies but still cannot pin it down to just what is the trigger. Be interested for any feedback!
Libby 18 June 10
I drink gallons of coffee daily and have found no connection between coffee and mouth ulcers. But it could be that some are sensitive to coffee.
TomF 18 June 10
I drink coffee a LOT, all the time, and only have ulcers sometimes so I'd suggest no link.
matt 18 June 10
I never drank coffee in my life, Im 63yrs, but have had painful mouth ulcers for 40+yrs.
I have them for up to 3 weeks out of 4. A salt water mouthwash every hour helps, as good as anything you can buy, but there aint no known cure.
Baz 8 June 10
I used to get ulcers all the time. Tried all sorts of cures, but nothing ever seemed to really work. Then i stopped drinking coffee for another reason, and i stopped getting ulcers! Get maybe one or two a year now, and i used to live with them.
