Am I a candidate for getting mouth ulcers/sores?
The very nature of this condition means you are most likely to get it at some point in your life. It is caused by a virus, which you most often get during childhood. But it is nothing serious and is rarely caused by an underlying medical condition. It is also non-infectious so it won’t pass on to others.
What are mouth ulcers/sores?
These are painful round or oval shaped sores or spots inside the mouth. These are breaks in the mucosal membrane of the mouth or the moist inside surface of the mouth. You can often see these on the inside of the cheeks and lips. They can also appear on the floor of your mouth or on the underside of your tongue. Wherever they appear, it can be very uncomfortable and sometimes painful when you eat, drink or even when brushing your teeth.
What can cause mouth ulcers?
The main reason why people get mouth ulcers is because they either hit the area while brushing their teeth or bite on their cheeks while chewing their food. It can also be because of wearing braces or dentures.
There are also situations that trigger mouth ulcer outbreaks, like when you are stressed, anxious or run down. Hormonal changes can also trigger it, especially in women during their period. Certain foods can also increase the chances of you getting mouth sores: chocolate, coffee, peanuts, almonds, strawberries, cheese, tomatoes and wheat flour.
