In brief: Riboflavin def

B vitamins esp riboflavin gets depleted i'n inflammatory bowel disease - take max stress b from qnlabs which is probiotic generated - means no need for body to have co- factors to absorb this vitamin - take 30-45 drops i'n the morning for 1 week everymonth to keep your vitamin b levels normal.

Also could be aphthous ulcers, which occur for unclear reasons, appear to be heritable, and are treatable. They are not curable, just treatable
Dr. Jack Mutnick
That is an excellent thought. B-vitamin deficiencies are very common in those who imbibed in a bit much of the "drink." Not that this patient has that demeanor. But B-vit def is a great thought.

In brief: Regular oral ulcers

Common causes of recurrent oral ulcers are canker sores (aphthous stomatitis, cause unknown) and cold sores (oral type 1 herpes simplex infection).
But it can be caused or associated with other infectious (vial like typ 2 herpes simplex, fungal and bacterial) and immune-mediated (lupus, crohn's, behcet's) diseases.

In brief: Behcet's disease

Recurrent canker sores have several causes but behcet's syndrome should be ruled out - especially if your heritage is central or east asian.
Behcet's syndrome is an autoinflammatory disease & involves defects in intrinsic immunity. A board-certified immunologist may help. Depending upon where you live that might be an allergist or rheumatologist.

In brief: Oral Ulcers

Could be infection vs irritation vs allergic to food/medication.
It also depends on travel history, sexual history, occupational history. All of these things are important. It could even be that you had recent dental work (?) and you have a nickel allergy that causes these ulcers. Definitely get them checked out. If you don't have them on the date of ur appt, take pictures beforehand.
