What is aphthous stomatitis? You've heard it said "children should be seen and not heard", well, a similar statement should be made about canker sores. Perhaps a statement more like canker sores should never be seen or heard from again.
Even though no one else usually knows you have one of those mouth ulcers, you sure know it.
Canker sores usually appear as a little white ulcer with a red border on the inside of your mouth. Although small, they can feel as large and painful as if all of Mount Vesuvius were in your mouth!
Every time you open your mouth to talk, take a bite, or drink something a little acidic the explosive pain erupts in your mouth.
Also known as aphthous stomatitis, a more technical name for canker sores, they are kind of a medical mystery. Doctors and nutritionists are unable to give a firm reason why some people frequently get those stinging the sores on their tongues, gums and sheiks.
Some feel heredity may play a role, but more commonly it's stress, poor diet, reactions to certain foods, and abrasions caused by coarse foods or even dentures.
One of the most exciting treatment options discussed recently was an article in ScienceDaily.com, showing that licorice extract provides a new treatment option for canker sores. The means of delivery in their study was through a medicated adhesive patch. The product used in the study of licorice extract on aphthous stomatitis was Cankermelts from Orahealth.
