mouth ulcers - what was name of the product that was recommended on here please?
bonjela once was £9!!!!! It hasn't numbed the pain completely but it does feel a bit better. I'll know more when I try to eat. The ulcer is on the side of my tongue quite near the back and it was really tricky to get the gel lotion on it.
well the Bonjela once hasn't worked unfortunately. I'm in just as much pain now as I was before. I think I need to have another search for the other cream that was mentioned. Something beginning with 'c' I think???
thanks everyone. I think that might be the one Sexonfire. Is it only available from the GP though? I'll go back to chemist tomorrow and see if they have it or what else they can suggest. I'm guessing as teh Bonjela once didn't work it might not be an ulcer. I have a horrible sore throat on the same side and ear ache too. And even a slight tooth ache. Best put me down huh? I'm just falling apart at the seams
I'm not sure if it is available over the counter, which is ridiculous as it's mouth ulcer ointment not diazepam. You saying "best put me down" reminds me of the old joke which might make you smile (painfully)...
A man takes his squint eyed dog to the vet. The vet says " I think I'll have to put him down." "Because he's cross eyed?" asks the man. "No, because he's heavy"
Adcortyl is not only on prescription - available from any chemist and it's fantastic. very strange consistency, btw - reacts instantly with saliva to make a weirdo sticky paste that completely coats your ulcer and dries out your mouth but gets rid of the little blighters overnight.
thanks for the laugh SOF. Much appreciated. And thanks for that helpful snippet Tallis. I'm tempted to go to Sainsbury now and hope the chemist there is still open. I'm not looking forward to another night like last night. How can something so small cause so much pain, that's what i want to know!!
I didn't go Tallis as MIL bought DS back from his day in London, DD played up going to bed and then an old friend rang. Tomorrow, first thing I shall be off to the chemist at the top of the road! I'm about to have a camomile tea in the hope that that will soothe it
