Some Canker Sores In The Mouth That Have Not Healed For Years?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm first, what do you mean that your husband's mouth sores have not healed for 7 years? Are there other symptoms that accompany the appearance of canker sores in the mouth?
In general, thrush will heal by itself within 1-2 weeks. If your sprue does not heal within 2 weeks or continues to appear until your husband has difficulty eating and drinking, sprue is very large, sprue can bleed easily, then your husband should get further examination to find out other causes of sprue (meaning that sprue is not canker sores). Some possible causes of canker sores that persist or appear continually as experienced by your husband include:
certain nutritional deficiencies Crohn's disease SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus) HIV celiac disease Behcet's syndrome oral cancer It is best to check with an internal medicine doctor again for further evaluation. When symptoms do not heal after you have been treated once, do not immediately change to another doctor, but do control back to the same doctor so that further disease progress can be monitored and further therapy planned.
For now, a few things you can try to do:
Maintain oral hygiene and health by brushing your teeth regularly Choose toothpaste or mouth rinses that do not contain SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) Avoid smoking If the mouth feels very painful, try to eat foods that are soft and easy to swallow, but still pay attention to foods that are Edible still contains complete nutrition
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
