I have had recurrent mouth ulcers and skin lesions on arms, hands and sometimes feet for the past 6 years. I have had all bloodworm done, biopsies done, tests, etc. and they have all come back negative/inconclusive. I have also tried a variety of medications including dapsone, imuran, valtrex, etc. and I have had no relief. I have had to take prednisone every month to help with the inflammation because the mouth ulcers become so severe after a week that I cannot eat, talk, brush my teeth, etc. I'm at a loss of what to do next and would like to know if anyone has any thoughts or ideas. Please share. Thank you!

  • Sorry you are suffering from these mouth ulcers. I too have suffered from them having one set of mouth sores clear up just to have a new batch start right away. The only thing I found that helped is to take a probiotic daily and they should clear up in a couple of days wouldn't hurt to eat yogurt while the probiotics are taking a effect. If you find this works for you, as it did for me, you may want to look into the Candida syndrome, it could be as simple as cutting out sugar in your diet until things get back to normal. Guess cutting out sugar it's not that simple but it can be done. Hope this helps!
