Mouth ulcers could be due to a B-vitamin deficiency.

Maybe a trip to Boots is in order!

I've had this - I think it was viral, it feels awful, doesn't it? It clears up in a few days, but I remember sitting watching TV with my tongue hanging out like a dog. And the DC got it too - poor babies.

I had a sore tongue a few weeks ago - it felt like I'd burnt it drinking a hot drink - and lots of mouth ulcers on my tongue (I counted 18 at one point). Went to GP and she said it was due to a virus and that it would clear up within 7 to 10 days.
It took just over a week to clear up.

I still keep getting mouth ulcers though. Not 18 of them like last time, but currently got a couple on my tongue again. I take a multivitamin each day. Would it be worth taking a special B vitamin formula?
