I order soup and mash potatoes for dinner. I could eat the soup but not the mash potatoes.

Iím suffering through a bad bout of ulcers at the moment and came across this site. I didnt see any mention of it but, I have found Tabasco sauce to be quite a good anaesthetic for ulcers. It works really well for me, numbing the pain for up to a couple of hours depending on what I do in that time. Iíve found the gels that form a protective layer quite helpful in the past but they are often difficult to apply and get to stick to the right area. This solution helps somewhat in such situations. I will however say that it can initially be eye wateringly painful when applied, but then benzocaine gels Iíve used are equally painful on application. If your willing to endure the initial pain it can allow you to enjoy a decent meal or get through a meeting and actually say what you want to. Iíd be interested to see if others have used it, and would suggest that perhaps an addition to the treatments survey would be a good idea. I did a quick search on the web and came across the page below which is not specifically about ulcers but seems to be a good starting point for basic info about peppers.
Anyway thanks for the site - a sense of humor and a smile always help.

Yes, pears are great. They are only fruit really I can think of that isnít too painful. I use a juicer as I need to eat well to speed up healing. I eat light pastas with soft veges (non tomato based) and fried rice. Yoghurts for breakfast and tender meat/fish for dinner.

I dont usually get mouth ulcers, but at the moment i have numerous ulcers all over my tongue, so eating and drinking is a real nightmare. I was wondering if there is any food/drink you recommend to consume, as i am not eating at all right now.
