has anyone had a persistent mouth ulcer? I don't usually get them but i've had this horrible sore one at the back of my mouth for over five weeks now. Terrified its something horrible, i don't smoke but i have done [for about a year] and i used to take inhalers for asthma [stupid combination yes i know]. Just can't get rid of it. Going back to doc next week just wondered if anyone had had a similar thing.
Having spent a wait at the dentists recently reading a poster about potential mouth problems, I'd go to the doctor now, not wait a couple of weeks - can be a sign of something that needs treatment
thanks for all the tips. Have been to docs once and she said come back inn two weeks so am going this week again. Pharmacist said don't use corsadyl if breastfeeding! Will try sage leaves and salt water thanks spidermama. Still terrified, have to face it to whatever it is. It keeps going down then coming back up, so hoping that means it will heal eventually. Also got a gammy tonsil now! Boody hell..
Aren't they just the worst thing! Sooo painful -I have to take painkillers when I get ulcers or I get so grumpy its untrue - it hurts to laugh, speak, eat! Grrrr. My MIL recommends drying out a pomegranite and grinding it up into a powder, and applying that to the area.
