I get canker sores from some red wines. I'm trying to figure out what about thses wines does it. I stay away from white wines and pinapple too. Lack of sleep or stress makes me more suseptable to canker sores too.

I too get a real sore ...like canker sore on the roof of my mouth and my mouth hurts as does the sides of my nose and even sinus and eyes...I feel like I have to sneeze and sometimes do and sometimes not and that feels awful..I am starting to think it is champagne or white wine even the organic ones...red wine seems fine...if I increase acidic fruits that too seems to bring it on...lately I have been jucing again and that horrible pain and feeling is coming back...time to figure this out ...even my throat gets sore and swollen glands...feels like an allergic reaction more than anything else and doctors have tested me ...mri..xrays...etc and can't seem to figure it out?

I was able to drink champagne and white wine without getting canker sores until just a few months ago. I don't know what changed in my body to make me suddenly react this way, but my husband and I were on a cruise and drinking wine and champagne every day. By the time we got home, I could barely speak my mouth was so painful. Since the problem seems to be related to the acid in white wine, I'm going to try brushing my teeth with baking soda after having wine to see if this will affect the PH balance in my mouth and prevent canker sores in the future.

Dear Meokk,
Like you I have no problem with red wine only white and as Liz suggests, the cheaper the white wine, the worse the mouth ulcers. However, I find I am OK with Champagne. Some champagne is made using only red grapes Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (so called blanc de noir - white from black) Avoid the champagnes made with a high percentage of chardonnay, white grapes (blanc de blanc).

Hi Meokk
I asked the doctor as to why some of us get allergies to fruits and he said it was because a lot of fruits are acidic, also can cause heartburn indicating that we have extra acid in our stomach which can also cause reflux ie the acid can come back into our mouths and can cause the reaction in some of us triggering canker sores or ulcers, (sad lot I am afraid). Some of the cheaper wines sirely must also have other stuff in them especially cheap wines, not to say they are not nice but some wines on the shelves are only bottled months ago. The good wines do not seem to be so acidic. Try brushing your tongue also and give it a good rinse with warm water, every little tip helps. Good luck for a speedy recovery - if any!

Thanks Liz
do you know if there is anything common to the fruits that are triggers for you?
I'm using SLS free toothpaste and so far only white wines cause ulcers for me.
I can drink red without any reaction. Fingers crossed it will stay that way.

Anyone else out there triggered by wine or fruit?

Hi Meokk
I have been saying to folk for almost 2 years on this excellent site for us sad folk with mouth problems that all citrus fruits for me and others are a trigger of the most awful canker sore ulcers that anyone could imagine and soo--ooo ...painful (inside cheek) so raw!! and I discovered only by the other inputs to this site that perhaps my ulcers were caused by allergy to anything citrus like tomatoes, oranges, red peppers, (orange juice) pineapple and of course the stuff we all like - WINE) - however after a dentist's advice I eliminated all this stuff,It was hard to begin with but I cut it all out as pears,melons, bananas and other furits are available - it was so amazing that quickly I had an ulcer free mouth, I also took advice from this site and used a toothpaste without Sodium Laurle Sulphate which is also an irritant to ulcer sufferers, why not try elimination, no need to be teetotal, try white spirits like gin and tonic, or vodka which is not made with grapes (not brandy) and hope anyone out there tries as the pain of ulcers is just not worth it !!!

Hello
I started to get the outrageously painful, under/side of tongue ulcers in January of this year.
Like many of you, my outbreaks are debilitating. Unable to speak or eat without medication.
Coincidentally I have been dieting for several months and so am logging everything I eat and drink in an online database. I have also been marking the calendar when I get canker sores.
To my huge distress - I only and always get sores one day after consuming champagne or white wine.
I have been drinking both for 15 years without any reaction until January 2010.
Red wine has no effect.
Any body else out there have the same cause or know what in the drinks may be the culprit?
