  • go to the doctor! but sucking on tums tablets helps. can't be off-brand or rolaids. had to be tums with calcium.....put it on the sore and let is desolve. it will sting at first but it makes them less painfull in the long run and they heal faster. lace*

  • It sounds like canker sores. Maybe you are brushing and flossing too hard or you have recently had a cleaning that caused it? This happened to my husband.

  • I had this problem about 7 years ago. It happened right after I had some dental work done. At first, I thought it was related to the dental work. Actually had one of the sores biopsied by an oral surgeon. After 6 months of aggressively searching for answers, I was referred to the mayo clinic. Turns out, I have lichen plantus, which is induced by stress. That's why my condition worsened when I could find no help. I was put on medication for stress and sure enough, the sores went away slowly. I take low dosage of meds. for stress daily and this keeps my mouth sores/soreness to a minimal.The bad news is that there is no cure. Only treatment.

I have since found out that I am intolerant to wheat and gluten. I do not have Celiac Diease. You can test yourself real simple....well with a lot of reading labels of course. You will know in about 2 weeks if you are having a reaction to wheat. You will have to remove all wheat and gluten from your system for about 2 weeks. Then slowly add it back in and see if the ulcers reappear. Also you may notice stomach unset too. Check out Celiac.com for much more information. We are seeing alot more people with problems with wheat than ever before. It is not the wheat itself, but the way it has been genetically altered. Alot more people are unable to process it.Everytime I get into wheat by accident, sometimes within minutes ulcers will appear. Good luck to you and continue reading everything you can.Regards,Jayne
