so, i suffer occsionally, [like when stressed] with mouth ulcers, just last week i had a real nasty one right on the area behind the corner of my lip, so even speaking hurt, i had run out of the anbesol/bonjela so wh=ent to tesco to get a new pack, and saw a medicine that claimed to be a one hit KO, it was £5 for 2 applications, this thing was giving me so much grief i thought, go for it
to my great surprise it worked, tho the pain was nothing id ever felt before [havent had too much physical pain but this was unique]
thing is i didnt know such a medicine existed, and neither did anyone i know
And have always used the common gel medicine that you mention. However I have seen these one application wonders, sort of like a cotton bud that you snap the liquid into. However, they were £8 for 2 and no amount of pain is worth that, i have a mortgage! If they've dropped in price I might consider in future.
can sometimes indicate an underlying medical condition, especially if they are happening with no obvious cause, i.e. accidentally nipping the inside of the mouth and drawing blood while chewing.
I would advise mentioning your ulcers on your next trip to the dentist and see if they have any thoughts. Mention it to your GP as well, but a dentist is more used to working in that part of the body so will be more familiar with symptoms and causes than a GP.
Best stuff for mouth ulcers is Frador, a small vial of magenta liquid which you paint on with a cotton bud. Widely available OTC and great because, unlike gels and pastes, it stays on the ulcer. Especially useful for the problem areas at the junction of the inside of the cheek and the gum, or under a denture!
I don`t see why anyone would need medication for mouth ulcers unless they were a sign of some other medical condition and you would then see your GP about the problem. What sort of wimps are we that we need a pill for every ill these days.
i dont need medication, but want it! this one made eating painful being where it is
babybell ..yep thats what it is, ill say what it was and if it gets deleted, it gets deleted, this one was called oralmedic, im going to get some more, just in case i get another, for me its much better than sffering, 2.50 for a week of no pain? ill take it
