How to Get Rid of Mouth Ulcers

Mouth ulcers are open lesions in the mouth. Some people also refer to mouth ulcers as canker sores, fever blisters or cold sores. There are different types of mouth ulcers, and their causes are various. Although mouth ulcers are common among adults, they seem to occur more in the generation from ages 15-30. Mouth ulcers are a nuisance to have but in most cases can be cleared up with the right treatments and proper oral hygiene.
Although there are a few over-the-counter products to treat mouth ulcers, there are a few techniques that can be used at home to get rid of them also. One of the main things to keep an eye on is the foods that need to be avoided. Any acidic foods such as oranges or soft drinks do not need to be eaten. Acidic foods will only disturb the mouth ulcer. Soft steamed vegetables and a yogurt are a couple of suggested foods that will be easy on the ulcer. Yogurts also contain probiotics that will help keep infection down.

A Few Chosen Methods for Getting Rid of Mouth Ulcers
Anbesol is a gel-based gum medicine that can also be used to treat mouth ulcers. Anbesol is used to remedy the pain caused by open-mouth lesions or sores. Another way to get rid of mouth ulcers is to gargle with warm salt water. This remedy is an oldie but goodie. Before gargling, be sure that all the salt has dissolved. Usually the warmer one can stand the water, the better. There are anti-bacterial rinses that can be used in conjunction with the salt water rinses. For a more immediate release of pain, a laser treatment can be done. While this is not the cheapest way to get rid of mouth ulcers, it is the fastest and longest lasting method.

Pain or Bleeding Mouth Ulcers
Mouth ulcers have been known to produce a pain so strong that headaches can occur. Some mouth ulcers even cause fevers or bleeding. Ibuprofen can be taken to help with pain while the ulcer is being treated. If bleeding or pain from the mouth ulcer persists, a doctor visit is highly recommended. If the mouth ulcer keeps coming back after it has been treated, consult with a physician to see if he may find the cause.
