Ongoing Sores in Mouth

Does anybody else have issues with getting mouth sores/lesions to heal? I've tried otc gels and numbing agents, mouthwashes, diet changes, and nutritional supplements. Every time I think I have made progress, up pops another one. It is very frustrating as it is hard to eat and limits my choices. Thank you for any advice. BTW: Have talked with PCP with no results.

  1. It may sound strange but try a different toothpaste. Change your toothbrush. I had the same problem and he prescribed a mouthwash. I paid better attention to my oral hygiene and it worked. The sores healed and went away. Best of luck to you.

    1. thank you. Will give it a shot.

  2. I have experienced mouth/tongue problems for years. I’ve seen dentists, ENT, GPs- no one can figure why I have recurring sores ulcers on the sides of my tongue- numbness of my tongue etc. I have had neurological eval and rheumatological work up but no one knows why. I have all of the symptoms everyone mentions who have been diagnosed with MS but my MRI showed no lesions.
    Anyway, I want you to know I understand the frustration and discomfort with the mouth sores. I’ve tried to understand a cause/trigger- I’ve just noticed they seem to be one of the first indicators of a flare up or increase of symptoms cycle. I was prescribed something called “Miracle Mouthwash” which does give me relief from the pain. Perhaps seek that to see if it’s helpful. Take care.

    1. , thanks for sharing this suggestion for ! I have to admit I have never heard of this product, but I am glad it brings you some relief!

  3. I have great news to share! (but I'll whisper it so the MS Monsters don't wake up-imagine Gremlins). I found online (a..z..) two great products which seem to help. GuruNanda Concentrated Mouthwash (2 fl oz) and Daily Cold Sore Supplement. Immune Support (60 Capsules). Along with changing out my toothbrush, taking the supplement, and using the mouthwash (thank you for suggestions posted here) seems like things are quieting down. Wishing the best for y'all!

    1. , woo hoo! I am so glad you have found some products that seem to help with your mouth issues. That's great! And thanks for sharing with the community.

      And may the MonSter stay asleep! 😉
