I've always gotten canker sores and usually would get rid of them by eating yogurt. They never lasted more than a few days. Since my tp, I've only had a couple but they are persistent and annoying to the point of waking me up at night and effecting my eating habits which makes me grumpy and no fun at all. Anybody have any suggestions for dealing with these obnoxious sores? My usual acidophlous route isn't working.
I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with these. For a long time, I have not had any trouble with developing these sores or their persistance that I can remember since my transplant until about a month or so ago. Now I can not seem to get rid of them. I have sores on both sides of my inner cheeks, accidentally biting them I think being the trigger, but I also have one on my upper left gum behind the teeth that could not have been produced by biting the area and now two sore white places on the front and one side of my tongue. I usually eat yogurt everyday, but I have not noticed it having an affect on this. I have experienced an increase of reflux at night because I have increased the rate of g-tube feedings that I have in addition to what I eat orally in the day in the hopes to gain weight. I am wondering if this might not be a factor in this. My dentist whom I will be seeing Monday after about three weeks since I first saw him for this problem put me on a steroid dental paste that I put on the sores everyday and before I go to bed. They may have gotten a little less sensitive, but are still bothersome, especially when eating or drinking, of course. I can completely sympathize about how you feel concerning this issue. I am hoping to get more answers or help when I see the dentist Monday. May we both be able to find some relief soon. Best of wishes.
I too have trouble with these. Finally I switched toothpaste brands, I now use one for sensitive teeth. It has helped some. The sores are very painful and I can't sleep or eat when I have them either. Taking something for acid reflux doesn't seem to help them anymore. When eating crunchy foods or crusty bread I have to be careful not to tear any mouth tissue because I always have a sore spot there the next day. I agree they are obnoxious!!
