Thrush is generally a mild condition due to irritation or infection around the oral cavity. This canker sore will heal by itself within 1 to 2 weeks without requiring special treatment.
If canker sores recur very often, especially in large enough quantities, then you should be vigilant. This may indicate a disturbance in the immune system, for example due to:
Long-term use of steroids Malnutrition HIV/AIDS Diabetes Cancer sufferers who are undergoing chemotherapy, etc. Apart from that, it is also possible that recurrent and recurring canker sores arise due to poor oral and dental hygiene, scurvy (vitamin C deficiency), smoking, cancer oral cavity, and so on. It is also possible that the habit of biting or sucking the lips, and the presence of broken teeth in the oral cavity contribute to this complaint.
You should re-examine your complaints to your doctor. If you suspect an underlying systemic disorder, your doctor may refer you to an internal medicine specialist.
In the meantime, try to maintain your immune system by diligently exercising, getting enough rest, and eating healthy and balanced foods, especially those that contain lots of vitamin C (eg guava, succulent, longan, sprouts). Avoid biting or sucking the lips. Be diligent about brushing your teeth and gargling with an antiseptic mouthwash. Avoid cigarettes and alcohol.
When canker sores recur, to reduce the discomfort, drink plenty of warm water, reduce spicy and oily foods, and gargle with salt water.
Hope it helps ya..
