Does Anyone Have Good Treatments For Mouth Sores?

Does Anyone Have Good Treatments For Mouth Sores?

Does anyone have good treatments for mouth sores? I’ve gotten painful lesions on my tongue and inside my mouth for the last 35 years, and only recently found a couple products that helped. The best one is the over the counter Colgate mouthwash called Peroxyl. You are only supposed to use it for a week, but mine were gone in five days. The other thing I found is L-Lysine, an over the counter protein precursor. I take it daily and after serval weeks it started helping my mouth sores but… read more

First you should check with a specialty dentist and make sure you don't have Lichen Planus which has an ulcerative form and is also an autoimmune problem. I had a complete ulcerated mouth until I figured it out. If you have lichen Planus your chance of mouth cancer is increased by 3-5% so you need to be checked on a regular basis. Back to the ulcers. 2 medicines I was taking caused my outbreak and horrible situation. Also using regular toothpaste with mint, etc. Stop the medicines you are suspicious of - check the side effects. Toothpaste I get online. It's called Toothbuilder Sensitive and totally worth it. It's xylitol. Do not use Spry cause it is too minty. Also stay away from hot, burning spices. Good luck!

Ask your primary care doctor for a prescription for "Magic Mouthwash". You can Google it for more info. In the meantime, swish with Mylanta two or three times a day. It really works, I'm using now. Blessings!

I started brushing my teeth with baking soda and coconut oil. Not only does it whiten my teeth but haven't had any sores since.

As MrsV stated: Magic Mouthwash or swish and swallow works wonders. Its basically Mylanta with Lidocaine. It coats the tongue/mouth and along the throat numbing the pain as well. * Yup you can get ulcers in your throat as well. You can get a presciption from your dr or urgent care. Its VERY EFFECTIVE! I urge you to act as soon as possible to keep it from triggering a lymph node response flairing your lupus worse. Trust me i have lupus, sjorgens, psoriatic arthritis, anticardiophospholipid syndrome, raynauds, and fibromyalgia on top of it all. I know how fast 1 thing triggers another.

I have had burning tongue for years tried it all under doctors care it only last a short time all the treatments i tried from peroxide to magic mouthwash by perscription throat lozenges and finally a friend sent me a article about burning mouth some of the products worked but a short time and the burning came right back so this article said baking soda as it was safe and to wash your mouth in a rinse with it so i started brushing my teeth daily with baking soda and i have to say it has helped the most and it kills bacteria and germs that are in your mouth all the time it will stop the burning longer then other products i have used better than other mouth washes i use it every day now it has helped significantly but as someone mentioned everyone is different but it's a safe bacteria killing alternative............
