Pain caused by mouth ulcers can make it difficult to eat, drink, or speak. How can you soothe the pain and shorten the healing time? According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Aim for more balanced nutrition

    Not getting the right amounts of certain vitamins can contribute to mouth ulcers; take a multivitamin containing zinc and generous amounts of vitamin B-complex, and include iron if tests show that your levels are low

  • Try a little liquorice

    Try chewable (or powdered) deglycyrrhizinated liquorice (DGL) to shorten mouth ulcer healing time

  • Visit your dental care professional

    Get checked for sources of minor trauma, such as rough fillings, braces, or poorly fitting dentures, which can aggravate mouth ulcers

  • Ask about anti-septic mouth washes
  • Forego certain foods

    Work with a knowledgeable health professional to find out if you’re sensitive to foods that make symptoms worse
