I usually get 2-3 at 1 or 2 periods in a month, I found this website which has message board for people who suffer badly with painful ulcers almost 1cm in size... They drain the life out of you and make you seem unpleasant to people when you just can't smile!
Try taking a zinc supplement. I work in Oral surgery. You might just be lacking in zinc. Stay away from acidic foods and alcoholic beverages. Stress triggers a reaction too. Find a healthier way of dealing with your stressers. Your body is telling you enough is enough. Thrush and other fungal infections can cause these types of sores. There are even variations of the herpes virus that can cause these ulcerations and have similar characteristics as to what you have described here.
Yes, that's why I asked. I get terrrrible fever blister, sometimes inside my mouth on the gums. My lymph nodes get all swollen, my throat will even hurt sometime. I've tried Lysine, but it doesn't seem to work for me. You are so right about stress- there's a huge connection there. That and sun, for me. I'm interested in trying the zinc supplement. It's not something I've tried yet, thanks for sharing that!
I assume we're talking about upstairs herpes and thrush? lol
That's the same thing as a canker sore, right?
When I was younger, I used to get them a lot, and my mother had me gargle with hydrogen peroxide and then rinse. I remember it took care of them really quickly.
I also remember a doctor chastising my mother for letting me gargle with hydrogen peroxide, so maybe that's not the best idea...
These are big ulcers not the pinsize ones and come in 2s and 3s
I used to suffer with the same problem, until a friend told me to try lysine tablets at the first sign of a tingle. Miraculously, that will actually stop them from forming and help them to heal. You can get lysine (which is an amino acid) from a health food store - take two tablets in the morning and two at night. Lysine helps to heal soft tissues, like gums, and in used to help patients with ulcers. Also, try switching to a natural toothpaste that doesn't contain lauryl sulfate, which dries out your mouth and makes it easier for canker sores to form. I truly hope this helps.
I'm plastering my gums with 'Iglu' at the moment, its like little plasters for your gums!
Oh, gotcha. I do get them occasionally and they HURT! What does Iglu do, does it help? My kids get them a lot from all the oranges they love...
Iglu comes in a tube and you rub it on and it covers it like a plaster and stays there healing it...much better than the other waste of time creams
My son swears by putting raisins on them. He claims it draws out the infection and then they heal.

I recently signed up for a TripAdvisor.com account. The thought of using it to promote any of my travel hubs didn't initially occur to me when I signed up. My husband and I like to read reviews of potential travel...

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

So, is anyone else obsessed with their hubscore? I watch it go up and down and I become obsessed. I hit 91 once and I returned to the 80's again and dream of the day I could return to a higher number. ...
