|If you have several ukcers, try treating not more than two at a time with the pellets. I am oretty sure it is 'dont use more than four a day per ulcer'. Concentrate on sorting one or two ukcers at a time. Very miserable business. Maybe use Corsodyl gel to ease the rest of your mouht til you can treat them all|

|I suffer from mouth ulcers a lot and normally get 2-3 at one time. I have found Corsodyl mouthwash to be extremely good at healing them alot quicker than if left untreated or if using Bonjela (which I find just makes the ulcers HUGE before they heal). Frador Tincture (if you can find it) is very good at numbing, disinfecting and sealing an ulcer helping it to heal quickly as well.|

|I found corlan to be difficult to use - and unpleasant tasting. I swear by Adcortyl in Orabase. It is a steriod based treatment too - but in a sticky paste. I find this can reduce ulcer length by over half, if applied a few times a day - especially overnight.|

|Listen to us, desperate to get rid of these damned things! This whole pellet business sounds ridiculous to me. I put a message on here about burning them out, and I’m sure everyone’s afraid of it, but it has been wonderful. Obviously this wouldn’t help for ulcers down your throat, but I am serious, one day of misery and everything’s been great since. It still looks like I have 2 sores, but they don’t hurt anything like they used to, I can talk, brush my teeth, and eat anything. I think Dom wrote what the chemical is, called under my burning them out message, so seriously give it a try.|

|Tried corlan pellets - they have a awlful bitter taste but anythings worth a try. Didnt notice any great results , maybe a slightly quciker healing. |
Annoyed by the doctor though because when I had one down my throat all she could suggest was corlan pellets - but if it down your throat u cant exactly hold it on it can you?? she reckoned that if placed under the tongue then the pellet would drip down my throat?? how much spit does she think I have?? and what are the chances of it dripping on the ulcers?? let alone enough to do anything?? espically when holding it directly on a ulcer in my mouth didnt work so the odd drip isnt is it??
another example of a doctor who hasnt got an answer and just wants to get rid of you and not help.
Bottom line is they did not do anything significant.

|Have any of you guys tried using corlan pellets to get rid of mouth ulcers? You place one as close to the ulcer as possible, preferably before bedtime.|

|what about (lack of Iron) in your system?|

|Some licorice candies are formulated with wheat flour, so if your ulcers come from gluten (contained in wheat flour) and you continue eating that kind of licorice candy, you’ll continue to have ulcers. I found all this from personal experience after getting several big sores after indulging in a lot of licorice!|

|Liquorice doesn’t seem to work for me...the amount of liquorice I through daily (being a Finn) should cure the whole nation. Maybe I need to stop over-doing it.|

|I’ve used Corlan pellets, the active ingredient appears to be hydrocortizone. As you say they are difficult to use, so I investigated the production of cortizone naturally in the body. It would seem that amongst other things, cortizone production can be stimulated by liquorice. So I tried numerous liquorice based products. Some seemed to work for a while, others had no effect. I finally settled on sucking liquorice lozenges, called Fisherman’s Friend [in uk]. If you place it on the ulcer, [if possible] and let it slowly dissolve, it not only provides a mild anaesthetic, but speeds up the healing process|

|Went to ENT yesterday and got prescribed Gorlan pellets (a steroid). It says on the box that you should let them melt on your ulcer. I currently have 6 ulcers and not enough fingers to hold all 6 pellets in place. And also you are only allowed to have 4 pellets a day.|
Has anyone got any experience with these pellets? Do they work or am I just wasting my time?
