Mouth ulcers are really and painful but they can be pretty easy to manage.
There 3 products we generally use to help manage mouth ulcers and to take the edge of the pain.
Using a gel during the day every couple of hours will just take the edge off the pain.Usually, the gels are aspirin based. They decrease swelling and inflammation in the gums and around the ulcers.They take the edge off the pain and they are quite soothing as well.
At night time, we gently use a paste. It’s not suitable for everyone so speaking to your pharmacist will help you determine whether this product works best for you. It works overnight to reduce the swelling. The paste is applied directly to mouth ulcer and it creates a nice barrier around the ulcer to allow it to heal up very quickly.
3. SUPPLEMENTS. We use supplements in the form of capsules that contain zinc and creatine which may be helpful for you. That works on the inside to start heal up the mouth ulcer.
