Mouth Ulcers & Infections


Mouth ulcers and infections can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, stress, certain foods or medications, and underlying health conditions. The most common types of mouth ulcers are canker sores and cold sores. Canker sores typically develop on the inside of the mouth and appear as small white or yellowish bumps surrounded by redness. Cold sores usually occur outside the mouth on the lips or around them.


Infections such as oral thrush (a fungal infection) can also cause discomfort in your mouth. This condition is more common in people with weakened immune systems or those who have taken antibiotics recently. Symptoms include white patches on the tongue and inner cheeks that may bleed when scraped.


If you're experiencing any symptoms related to these conditions, it's important to see a dentist or healthcare provider for diagnosis and treatment options tailored to your specific needs. Treatment may include topical ointments, oral medications like antibiotics or antivirals depending on the cause of your ulcers/infection, avoiding triggers that aggravate symptoms such as spicy foods etc., maintaining good oral hygiene practices like brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste & flossing regularly will help prevent future outbreaks.
