Internal Mouth Sores
I suffer from mouth sores very frequently. At the moment I have sores on the inner side of lips and on inner side of teeth?
Oral ulcers: Small painful ulcers inside the mouth often are aphthous stomatitis (canker sores) or herpes, but there is a long list of conditions that have oral ulcers. Some of these conditions have both oral ulcers and genital ulcers. This needs a workup including herpes cultures, levels of iron, vitamins particular b6 and b12, folic acid, and a thorough history and physical exam to rule out other causes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
A canker sore is a painful, open sore in the mouth. Canker sores are white or yellow and surrounded by a bright red area. They are benign (not cancer). Canker sores can run in families. They may also be linked to problems with the body's immune (defense) system. The sores may occur after a mouth injury due to dental work, aggressive tooth cleaning, or biting the tongue or cheek. Canker sores can be triggered by emotional stress, dietary deficiencies (especially iron, folic acid, or vitamin B-12), menstrual periods, hormonal changes, food allergies, and similar situations. They occur most commonly with viral infections. In some cases, the cause can not be identified. Treatment is usually not necessary. In most cases, the canker sores ...Read more

Milk of magnesia and kaopectate both contain ingredients that coat wet tissues, such as those in the mouth. Benylin and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) contain ingredients that act as mild topical anesthetics and antihistamines (which reduce inflammation). Dab it on your canker sores with a q-tip. Don't swallow it. ...Read more
