Mouth ulcers can be uncomfortable. They look similar small blisters and can be caused by a tooth rubbing, a lack of vitamin B12, anemia or even stress and many other causes. Ulcers will usually heal within seven days. If they last longer, you should come and see us as they may be an early indication of something more serious.
If you have a mouth ulcer, you can help clear them up by using a special antiseptic mouthwash or with special pastilles. These are available from most chemists and pharmacies – just ask the pharmacist for advice.
Having a healthy diet can help prevent mouth ulcers and ensure you keep in good health generally. Remember to eat a variety of fruit and vegetables each day.
