Cantankerous Canker Sores: How to Get Rid of Them

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Canker sores, oral lesions, mouth ulcers, stomatitis aphthous- call ‘em what you want. I call them annoying. Having a canker sore on your tongue is like being poked in the face with a sharp stick every time you take a bite of food; after a short while it becomes excruciating and just plain intolerable.

What causes mouth ulcers? Many physicians believe that oral lesions are caused by b12 deficiency. A study conducted by Ben-Gurion University found that b12 vitamins are useful as a preventative measure against recurrent stomatitis aphthous.

Here are some popular home remedies for treatment of oral lesions:

  • In one particular study 82% of test subjects with painful oral lesions reported feeling much better after an application of German chamomile extract.
  • Rinsing the mouth periodically with warm saltwater or aloe juice.
  • Applying a paste composed of baking soda and a bit of water.
  • Sucking on a zinc tablet.
  • Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) is an herb which is available as a powder and is often used in mouthwash used to treat canker sores.
  • Additionally, rubbing an ice cube on the tongue or inside cheek can provide a fair amount of relief.

Canker Sores and Vitamin B12

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Researchers at Ben-Gurion University in Beer-Sheva, Israel, have found a strong correlation between canker sores and B12. This research was published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine (January/February, 2009).

Canker sores, also known as Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis (RAS), affects about 25% of the population. These lesions of the mouth are small, painful ulcers that heal within two weeks. They often recur.

Triggers in a person’s environment may lead to RAS. These triggers include trauma, irritants, dryness, infections, hypersensitivity, toxic agents and autoimmune conditions. In addition, a nutritional deficiency may also be the cause. People who are low in iron, vitamin C, vitamin B12 or folic acid may suffer from RAS.

Obviously, not all triggers can be prevented, and some people are more prone to this than others.

This study involved 58 patients who suffered from RAS. Some were given a dose of vitamin B12 daily, and others were given a placebo. By the end of the study, 74% of those given the B12 treatment no longer suffered from recurring RAS, also known as canker sores.

In conclusion, those suffering from RAS would benefit greatly from vitamin B12 supplementation.
