Mouth ulcers may be solitary or appear as crops of lesions, they
can be found on the tongue, or any part of the mouth.
Symptoms of mouth ulcers include soreness, swelling
around the ulcer, difficulty chewing, visible sores in the mouth.
Keeping the mouth clean (good oral hygiene) will help
prevent some mouth ulcers and can stop existing mouth ulcers from
spreading or becoming more infected.
Keep area clean and clear of food scraps. Use a mouthwash
of warm salt water solution (1/2 teaspoon salt in full glass of
warm water). Over the counter treatments for mouth ulcers can sometimes
help. Avoid spicy and acid foods which can aggravate the ulcers.
Nasal ulcers are less common, & may result in
nasal septal perforation.
Antimalarials & steroids are helpful, nasal ulcers
sometimes respond to vaseline.
