He has a mouth ulcer and he’s been going on about it for 3 days! Even when he’s not going on about it he’s messing with his lip with his tongue in front of me like he’s trying to remind me without words that it hurts.
I know they hurt, I get them too, and I’m not uncaring (actually I am! I don’t give a shit that he has a mouth ulcer) I do care about him though, and if he’s ill I’m caring.
But somethings like mouth ulcers, colds, cuts on fingers etc.... I wish he’d just get on with it and stop moping!
Anbesol. Life saver. Not to be confused with anusol.
It hurts like hell to apply but once it's on it numbs the ulcer incredibly effectively. I used to get them all the time and anbesol was the only thing that enabled me to eat because the pain was so bad otherwise.
Bonjela does nothing imo. Anbesol is a thin liquid you apply with your finger and brings blessed pain relief very fast. I don't get ulcers anymore but never without a bottle in the house! It's amazing how strong an anaesthetic it is for an OTC med!
My husband suffers with nasty mouth ulcers and they stay for weeks. I never hear the end of it. He joked they are worse than childbirth, but I do think deep down he thinks this is true . He's the same as yours OP. Slight cut on his finger- you'd think he'd severed it! Aw, love him anyway
One of the reasons I got rid of exdh was because of the illness dramas. When he decided he had meningitis on a long term basis and kept informing people of how he was suffering with meningitis which he just couldn't shake i got fed up of the bum clenching embarassment and whinging and called it a day. (He was an intelligent chap so no idea why he concluded he had meningitis
Oh dear barefoof he sounds like a pita!.... My dh did actually have meningitis and was in hosp for 6 weeks, he nearly died. Thankfully I didn’t know him then. I met him about 2 years later and he still tries to get sympathy from me for it. Obviously I think it’s awful, and I’m really glad he made a full recovery, but I think that experience has made him a bit of a hypochondriac
The best bit about iglu is that it doesn’t hurt at all to apply, you can’t feel a thing. I was on medication once years ago where the side effect was lots and lots of mouth ulcers. I stopped the medication and put up with the problem instead because it was so unpleasant to live with.
