Lack of vitamin sores. - May 10th 2013, 11:15 PM

Okay I will admit I have a terribly poor diet. I eat very little and if I do eat its junk and crap. Not healthy or good I know. I've got a few sores around the edges of my mouth. Painful sores. From lack of vitamins. I've started taking multi vitamins again in the hope it will help. I guess what I'm asking here is what else can I do other than eat a better diet and take multi vitamin supplements and keep hydrated can I do to make these sores go away ?

I think you're doing everything you can do to help get the sores to go away! Just make sure you keep it up, brush your teeth/wash your face regularly and if you use chapstick or anything like that, make sure you avoid wherever the sores are as to not cause any infection.

If they don't go away after a couple weeks though I'd get a hold of your doctor to make sure everything's alright, just to be on the safe side.

Unfortunately, despite their popularity, multi-vitamins are really not worth the expense.

The body cannot absorb the vitamins properly in tablet form and most of them end up coming straight back out in your, err, waste.

The best way to get vitamins is from fresh fruits and vegetables. If your diet is poor then I'm guessing you don't currently eat many of these, but I would strongly advise that you do because you will see much better results than you will from popping pills.

As for your sores, try to stop them from becoming dry by applying Vaseline (petroleum jelly) or something similar (non-fragranced if possible). They will heal quicker and won't feel as sensitive.

I've never heard of vitamin sores.

But the previous poster is correct. Multivitamins are really not the best source of vitamins, although they are a good start! I think you should try to move towards a healthier diet. Maybe start by adding one more fruit or vegetable to your diet, then going up from there. Also, try to make sure you're eating whole-grain of any breads you are eating, and lean meats. Then, avoid the sodas/fizzy drinks! We both know that coffee is much better anyway.

Nothing works because you need iron for about 2 months. For an iron deficiency test: Go to the mirror and pull your lower eyelid and see if the color is red or flesh color. If it's flesh colored you are lacking enough iron and should take a herbal iron like Floradix. It will take a month to see a difference. Iron carries oxygen in your blood and if you don't have it you will feel tired, cold hands and feet, headaches, dull brittle hair, brittle nails, poor sleep, pale skin (see thru), shortness of breath, fatigue, poor concentration, low mood, ringing in the ears, irregular heart beats, cracks in the corner of the mouth, dizziness, fainting, sore tongue and canker sores. Add b12 and folic acid for best results.

I have been having a better diet, drinking vitamin drinks, taking vitamins, eating more fruit and veg. The sore is still there, I am considering seeing my Dr.

Yea I do suggest you to meet your physician. He can guide you in right way to overcome this problem. Eat healthy diet helps you in maintaining fitness level. Usage of multivitamin is also a useful idea to control the deficiency of vitamins.
