Canker sores are small sores whitish or yellowish, round or oval, sometimes surrounded by a red border. They sit on the oral mucosa or pharyngeal. Annoying but mostly painful mouth ulcers often accompanied by a burning sensation.Tips to deal with them.
The origins of canker sores remains unclear, although many contributing factors are now well known. Fatigue, stress, eating certain hard cheeses (like Swiss cheese) or nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, coconut) and even some toothpastes containing sodium lauryl sulfate, are all factors favoring the formation of ulcers.
These usually disappear without treatment. But when they occur repeatedly, it is best to consult your dentist or doctor. It may well prescribe a gel or ointment applied directly on the canker sore. The anesthetic they usually contain contact, relieves pain. Mouthwash for therapeutic purposes can also be effective. Finally the treatment and prevention are also maintaining good oral hygiene.
