It's been a week since I got a big sore on my mouth which makes it so hard for me to eat, drink something or even talk. Someone told me to put on ammonium alum on it and in just a few days it will be gone. But I didn't mind that advice because it is extremely painful that I nearly cry every time I try to eat or drink, how much more if I put ammonium alum on it?

This is how my mouth looks these past days up to now and it is really uncomfortable

Aphthous ulcer, also called canker sore is a small lesions that develops on the soft tissues of our mouth and sometimes, at the base of our gums.

Before the sores forms inside our mouth and at the base of our gums, we would feel a burning sensation and once it happens, expect for a small rounded wound with a center that is yellow or white to appear in the next days. It will make the following days very uncomfortable for you.

Three Types of Canker Sores

Minor canker sore. This usually heals after one or two weeks and just like what the name says, it is only minor which is usually less than one centimeter small and with a red edge, and round or oval shape.

Major canker sore. The sore or wound is bigger and deeper than the minor canker sore. It can be extremely painful and it usually takes three to six weeks to heal. This is the canker sore that I usually get, and usually appears every after 4 months.

Herpetiform canker sores. These sores are very uncommon. Usually a cluster of ten to one hundred sores or wound will appear but sometimes, it merges into one large sore. Sometimes, you may even get a fever along with this because it can be extremely painful.

Filipinos call it 'singaw' and oldies usually recommend the following home remedy for canker sore:

  • Ammonium alum (tawas) - put a bit of ammonium alum on a cotton and dab it on the sore.

  • A mixture of warm water and salt as a mouthwash (usually 2 teaspoons of salt is added to a glass of warm water) — gargle a lukewarm water with salt three times a day.

  • Young guava leaves — Chewing some young guava leaves. Guava leaves is believed to have some healing properties so guava leaves is boiled on water and the warm water is used to wash sores and wounds. It is also believed that the guava leaves juice helps heal canker sore.

  • Baking soda — Make a baking soda mouth wash by adding a spoon of baking soda to a glass of warm water.

There is no exact cure for canker sore as it may be recurring and may appear from time to time. But we can get it less often if we avoid some foods that could irritate our mouth such as citric fruits and spicy foods, and brushing the teeth after every meal could also help to remove traces of foods inside our mouth that may trigger a sore. I realizes that I got it more often because the foods that needs to be avoided are my favorites and a week doesn't pass that I don't eat those. But if you don't want to be like me, just avoid them lol.

Canker sore is just one of the few oral diseases or infections. Some of these infections are simple and can be gone after a few days, but some are serious and needs serious medication. Other oral infections or diseases includes:

Dental Carries

This is the most common oral infection especially to kids. These are the holes in the teeth that are formed due to cavities and tooth decay.

Gingivitis

This is the initial stage of a gum disease and is characterized by swelling, inflammation and bleeding of the gums. This can occur during flossing or brushing of the teeth. You'll see your gums bleed for no apparent reason.

Periodontal Disease

This is the common cause of tooth loss among adults. When gingivitis becomes serious, it can lead to periodontal disease. The early symptoms of this gum disease are: loosing of teeth, bad breath, receding and bleeding gums.

Thrush

This is characterized by having curd-like plaques on the tongue, inner cheek and roof of the mouth.

Herpangina

Herpangina is an infection within the mouth assocoated with hand, foot, and mouth disease. Typical first symptoms include fever, sore throat, and difficulty swallowing. Those symptoms are followed by tiny blisters at the rear of the mouth. Those blisters can form large ulcers once they burst.

Oral Herpes

Oral herpes can cause outbreaks of fluid-filled blisters within the mouth or on the lips that last for a week up to 10 days.

The factors that may contribute to gum diseases includes viral infections, stress, excessive alcohol consumption, use of tobacco or smoking, hormonal changes due to pregnancy and the most common is poor oral hygiene. So as a conclusion, regular and proper oral care is the best way to reduce the risk of having a gum disease.

Sometimes my father suffared by this Problem... But we Consultant so many doctors.. But stil no Rwault... *মেইন সুইচ

খালি বোর্ডের দিকে তাকিয়ে আছে মোঃ সাগর,
সকালে বিদ্যুৎ চলে গেছে, কিন্তু তার কারন বুঝতে পারেনি। কালকে রাতেও এখানে একটা মেইন সুইচটি ছিল। আজ সেটি নাই, বাবার হাতের লাগানো ছিল এটি। বাবার রেখে যাওয়া অনেক স্মৃতিগুলো আস্তে আস্তে সব হারিয়ে যেতে বসেছে, প্রথমে বাবার মেকানিক্যাল ইন্সট্রুমেন্ট গুলো বিক্রি করা হয়েছে। এরপর বাবার রেখে যাওয়া স্মৃতি ঘরটি ভেঙ্গে ফেলা হয়েছে। পরিবারের সবাইকে ঘর ছাড়তে বাধ্য করা হয়েছে। সাগর শহরে ব্যবসা করতো, করোনা মহামারির প্রভাবে ঘরে চলে আসে। আজ তার খুব মনে পড়ছে তার মায়ের কথা। সাগর ও তার বড় ভাই ছাড়া সবাই বাড়ির বাইরে। বড় ভাই পুকুর পাড়ে তিন জনের জায়গা দখল করে একা একা বাড়ি করেছে বউ বাচ্চা দের নিয়ে ওখানেই থাকবে, যদিও জায়গা জমি ভাগ বাটোয়ারা হয়নি এখনো। সব ভাইয়েরা আসলে ভাগ হবে, সাগরের ন্যায্য পাওনা বুঝে নিবে সে আশায় বসে আছে। বড় ভাইয়ের নতুন বাড়িতে ঘরের পুরাতন মেইন সুইচটি দেখে সাগরের ধাক্কা খাওয়ার কথা ছিলো, কিন্তু সাগর ধাক্কা খায়নি, কারণ সে আসার পর থেকে দেখেছে বড় ভাইয়ের এইসব ছোটলোকি কাজ, আর চুপচাপ সয়ে যাচ্ছে লোকলজ্জার ভয়ে। সাগরের মা বলতো, দুনিয়াতে কোন কিছু আশা করিসনা পরকালে পাবি। পরের হক খেয়ে দুনিয়াতে মজা লাগলেও আখেরাতে পার হতে পারবেনা। সাগর একটি দীর্ঘশ্বাস ফেলে খালি বোর্ডের দিকে তাকিয়ে আছে।

খালি বোর্ডের দিকে তাকাতে তাকাতে তার বড় ভাই চলে আসলো, বললো কি দেখছ? সব নিয়ে যাব, এতদিন তোরা শহরে ছিলি, আমি পাহারা দিয়ে রেখেছি সব। এই সময় চাচার বাড়ির গেইটের ফাঁকে নড়াচড়া দেখতে পেল, বুঝলো ভাই এমন কেন করছে? পেছন থেকে কল কাড়ি নে নাড়ছে! সাগরের মনে পড়ে গেলো এমন করে ভাইয়ের হাতে ছুরি দিয়ে পাঠিয়েছিল পেছনে লোকানো ঐ ডাইনিটা, একের পর এক অশান্তির জেরে ঘর ছাড়তে বাধ্য হয় তারা। সেই দিন বড় ভাই ছুরি নিয়ে তেড়ে এসে আঘাত করতে চেয়েছিল সাগরের বড় ভাই ইমরানকে। পাড়ার মানুষ সেইদিন তামাশা দেখেছিল, সাগরের মা খুব সম্মানি ও ধৈর্যশীল মহিলা ছিলেন।

সাগরের মা'তো এই পরিবারের মেইন সুইচ, তিনি যখন টিকতে পারেনি এই পরিবারে সেখানে ধাতব একটি মেইন সুইচ টিকবে কি করে?!

Bf also gets a lot of sores on a regular basis and i always have to get him this ointment for those sores. Solcoceryl works great for him since it acts like a cement covering over the sores and it helps the sore heal fast. It can be gone in 3 days to a week already

When that happens to me, I apply a drug called "methylene blue" to the sore. I don't know if it exists there, they sell it in pharmacies, it is very good, it is applied twice a day and in a few days that wound heals.

We need to be very careful about mouth hygiene and our immune system needs to be solid if we want to keep away bacteria. Doctors can make conclusion if there is bacteria or virus complication, and heals it with proper remedies. Also is important to check bacteria culture and know exactly and treat it well, because in case there is not bacteria or virus, maybe is something more dangerous and make swallowing harder then you mean and can. I like your work!

Press a piece of ice or a cold can on the herpes site as soon as possible, as the virus only thrives in a warm environment. Lemon balm extract has been shown to inhibit the development of herpes. Propolis not only has an antiviral effect, but is also a local anesthetic, in addition to promoting skin healing. Garlic is also a natural antibiotic, so cut the pod and apply its juice to the lip. You can also use essential oil. Drain the liquid in the bubbles with alcohol; if you are on the road, you can use perfume as a first aid. Apply some salt on a damp finger and hold it on the affected area for half a minute. Prepare a paste from cornstarch that will raise the pH and thus destroy the virus as it can only live in an acidic environment. Be careful not to let the bubbles touch acidic foods - such as citrus fruits. A paste from the contents of Acidophilus and yogurt capsules also helps. Aloe vera can be grown as a houseplant and use the juice of its leaves. Tea tree oil also has an antiviral and antiseptic effect, which also oils the area so that it cannot crack. Herpes is also recommended to be lubricated with olive oil or Vaseline.

Mine just healed. I know how sore and uncomfortable it is. Mine was at the side of the tongue so it's rubbing everytime I eat. I almost crying. I keep putting the "Bonjela" and I don't know if it helps but it numbs it anyway and although it takes week as well before it gets healed finally it's gone. What a relief!

Since birth of my children i used tagumbao or tuba tuba leaves. I use a cotton to collect it's juice from the stem or leaves then pat it on the sore. It stings at first but after a few seconds it will be gone even if you touch your sore with your tongue. This is according to my experience. 😁
