Mouth Ulcer - December 16th 2010, 01:18 PM

So basically I have a mouth ulcer. It's right at the back of my mouth where my tongue is so everytime I move my tongue it rubs against it and it really hurts and is affecting my eating.

I have some mouthwash that's desgined for soothing and helping to get rid of mouth ulcers but I was wondering is there anyway to make it disappear faster? And what foods should I avoid if I want eating to be less painful?

I can't physically reach the ulcer to put any bonjela on to help with the pain but would painkiller tablets help at all with the pain?

The soonest doctor's appointment I can get is the 21st now but I don't want to book it in case the ulcer goes before then. If the ulcer's still there by then I'll ring up and ask for an emergency appointment. Any advice would be really helpful right now.

I always gargle salt water when I get one. It hurts but it helps kill the germs

There isn't really any point in going to the doctors for an ulcer, let alone an emergency appointment. The ulcer will just go on it's own accord. Of course, try to avoid foods that might irritate your mouth, such as spicy foods. You may aswell try taking paracetemol to see if it will help, but I doubt it will completely stop the pain. I think you'll just have to wait for it to pass.

Well I had a look at the NHS site to see if they had any advice and it said to see your GP if the ulcer's been there for more than a couple of weeks and it's already been a week now. I just don't want to not be able to have a nice Christmas dinner because of it.
