Bloody Ulcers!

I suffer terribly with ulcers. Usually get two or three at once at least once a month. When I get them my whole face swells up and I can't talk.
I've mentioned it to GP and have been told to eat healthier (already do) and it's stress (granted I am stressed).
Currently suffering with three massive ulcers which hurt so much I can't talk because my teeth rub on them.
Is there anyone else who suffers with this or knows how to get rid of them?

May sound like a random question but do you have any issues with your bowels?

Have you asked your dentist?

I empathise. Mine cover my whole tongue for three weeks and it's unbearable. Nothing works.

For me, it's stress. I have tried ethg from salt, rubbing uncoated parecetomol on ulcer, mouthwash, toothpaste, new Bonjella style formula. The GP noticed them when I was there for athg else (gave up going with recurrent ulcers years ago) and dhe gave me steroid tablets to rub on the. Again, no good. Once they form snd multiply they don't go.

The trouble is I can't control my stress. I visited the dentist, took in more iron, but I know it is stress.

I'm sorry that's no help. I think for people who get the odd mild ulcer that goes in a week, over the counter Bonjella is fine. But when you seem permanently riddled with ulcers all over your tongue and mouth, that also make you feel unwell, unable to eat - talk in your job etc - then it's miserable. I really wish there were a cure.

I find that taking Zinc tablets helps then heal quickly. HTH.
