Not again... the ulcer returns...


Just almost a month shy after I last blogged about having mouth ulcers and now I have it again.... bahhh... this is so irritating... I have tried BM but it doesn't work cos my saliva washes/dilutes it away.

Now when I think of it, I have always had mouth ulcers - the only time I don't have it was when I was pregnant, probably bcos' I was taking prenatal vitamins then...

The medicines below have been tried and failed to heal my ulcers.. in fact some of them actually helps my ulcer to breed! I remember one time putting salt on the ulcer, then another 3 erupted before the original one heals...




There are times when I used to get real pissed at having ulcers that I'd go for nasi lemak and spicy stuff to make the ulcer erupts faster.

I'm currently using the last one (Dexaltin - RM9.90 for 2g gram tube) - sort of like a super mini tube paste which after applying onto the ulcer area, it coats the ulcer and I don't feel the pain anymore. It lasted for few hours even while I was having my kon-lou noodle soup right after applying it!

Let's see how long it takes for my ulcers to heal... :(

You could try limiting your food intake to nothing but BM ^_^

Jenny, try kenalog (from pharmacy), use cotton bud to apply. works really well :)

Mumzzy, thanks for the tip. I bought Dexaltin yesterday so far been applying it. Will take note of your kenalog if this Dexaltin is not working.

I always take it when I have ulcers or sore throat, usually will clear whatever I had in one or two days. In fact, I took it this morning. Got an ulcer on the side of my tongue.. oucch, real painful ...
