One of the worst things in life is a mouthful of ulcers. And it’s a fact that at some time or other, almost everyone gets mouth ulcers. I hardly need to tell you that the larger these are, the more painful they turn out to be. Can’t eat, can’t talk and can’t just about anything! Add to it a rotten mood ! Women, in particular, develop ulcers mostly when they are exhausted or premenstrual. Sometimes, if you are allergic to something or have nutrient deficiencies, mouth ulcers turn up. Stress also causes mouth ulcers.
Okay, so enough of rubbing it in. What can you do to prevent these ulcers?
- Take vitamins and mineral supplements, especially more vitamin C
- Eat a balanced diet
- Check whether you are allergic to anything
- On doctor’s prescription, use a zinc-based mouthwash
- Get enough sleep
- Do some relaxation exercises
And as it is easier said than done = Don’t worry, be happy!
Useful information. I knew stress causes stomach ulcers, never thought it would cause mouth ulcers too !
Went through my share of this nuisance last year and took something ayurvedic for it.
