One of the most painful, frequently occurring conditions that plague patients is canker sores on the cheeks, lips, tongue, gums, or palate. They can even occur outside of, but close to, the mouth. Fortunately, whether you treat them or not, canker sores usually disappear in about one week or a little longer. The cause of these objectionable sores is unknown, but fatigue, some foods, irritation with with a sharp object or toothbrush, emotional distress, or other reasons are potential causes.
Aphthous ulcers are painful, yet generally disappear without treatment in 10-14 days. Ulcers aren’t infectious and tend to recur less with age. The cause is not known, but related factors include injury, changes in hormone levels, lack of iron, food allergies, stress, and certain medications.
