Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions
Pain and sores in the mouth area that you experience can be caused due to thrush conditions. Thrush or the medical term is apthous ulcer, which is a wound of various sizes, yellowish white, and painful.
This condition can be triggered by various things, including:
Injuries from bitten wounds, or pierced by wires when wearing braces
The effects of stress
Poor oral hygiene
Side effects of certain drugs, such as chemotherapy drugs
Certain diseases such as Crohn's disease, celiac disease, or a low immune system, for example in people with HIV
Apart from thrush, sores in the mouth can also include the following conditions:
Herpes virus infection
Candida yeast infection
Coxsackie virus infection (hand foot and mouth disease)
Some tips that you can do first to improve your condition and maintain oral health, namely:
Brush your teeth after eating and before bed. Don't forget to also use dental floss to clean the remaining plaque between your teeth
Gargle with an antiseptic mouthwash
Eat vegetables and fruits that contain lots of vitamin C
Consume 2 liters of water per day
Manage stress properly, avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, and eating high sugary foods
If the pain has not improved, you can also take over-the-counter drugs, namely paracetamol to help reduce pain. However, make sure the dose you consume is in accordance with the correct dosage stated on the package or according to the instructions from the pharmacist
If in these ways the condition does not improve, you should check your condition with a general practitioner for further tests.
So many explanations from me, hope it is useful.
