How To Get Rid Of Canker Sores

How To Get Rid Of Canker Sores

There are many different causes for the painful canker sores that many people suffer from, some regularly, some others not as often, and most of all accidentally. Check out this helpful video in which you will know the advice of an expert regarding treatment, and information about some of the causes that you might not know about what produces these mouth ulcers. Take a look!

I'm here today to talk to you about how to get rid of your canker sores, or also known as mouth ulcers. So they are often caused by things like emotional stress, lack of sleep, self inflicted traumas, so if you've ever bitten your cheek while you're eating, you know that you're going to get a sore there.

Vitamin B deficiency, Iron deficiency and sometimes just before your period, you can get them, and also certain medical conditions such as Crohn's disease, Celiac disease and Behcets. Apart from the medic conditions, in which case, if you do keep getting multiple recurrent mouthers or canker sores, you do need to see your GP about it. Apart from those medical conditions, there is no other cure for the canker sores, they will get better with time, it's just a matter of reducing the pain and to prevent secondary infection, so alter it, use an anti-inflammatory toothpaste with aloe vera in it, that's got natural anti-inflammatory properties, so Forever Living does a very good aloe vera based toothpaste, and just by using the toothpaste if ever I bite my cheek, I don't actually tend to get mouth ulcers after that.

The other thing is to use an antiseptic mouthwash such us Listerine or any similar variety and that will help reduce secondary infection. The only thing about mouthwashes is that very lately, they've been linked to various conditions in the mouth, so I probably wouldn't use them continuously every day. I'd probably just use them if you've got a mouth ulcer or canker sore.

There are also protective pastes or barriers that you can use to reduce the frictioning from between the sore and the rest of the mouth, so if you're eating for example, do something like Iglu, is very good, or you can get Lignocaine based paste as well and that helps to act as a little clang static to reduce the pain until it gets better by itself. And also you need to reduce the cause or the factors of the mouth ulcers, so get to have a very good diet, reduce your stress if possible, improve your sleep pattern. You can sometimes use topical steroids as well to put directly on the ulcer, but we try not to recommend that for long term.

So I hope this has been useful and thank you very much for listening to me.
