Thrush After Eating Instant Noodles?
Hello, I want to ask. Why do I often get canker sores after eating instant noodles? what’s the cause? Is it because of the seasonings? r nI do not get bitten or feel hurt when eating instant noodles. I eat as usual. R n r nSariawan does not always appear every time I eat instant noodles, but quite often, and when I finish eating, the gums will feel like they are injured. R n r nWhat causes it? thanks.
Hello, Achelia Setiani, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Although physically, canker sores are very easy to identify, the actual cause of canker sores is not clear. Thrush or aphthous stomatitis can be caused by several possible causes, such as:
1. There is an injury to the mouth (wearing braces, being bitten, teeth too sharp, eating food that has a hard / sharp consistency)
2. Consumption of certain foods / drinks, for example spicy, hot, coffee
3. Hormonal changes
4. Certain medical conditions, for example Crohn's disease, iron deficiency, vitamin B12 deficiency, in people with low immunity (eg HIV, diabetes), lupus, viral infections such as hand foot and mouth disease, etc.
5. Psychological stress
6. Side effects of certain drugs
Thrush can occur due to one of the causes above or also occur due to several of the above factors occurring simultaneously, especially if the thrush recurs frequently. For that, you should avoid things that are suspected of causing these canker sores. In addition, maintain oral hygiene with a toothbrush and clean the tongue regularly, meet nutritional needs, especially iron and vitamin B12, limit foods that are high in sugar or contain yeast, avoid smoking, and regularly check with the dentist for at least 6 months. once. If the canker sores keep recurring, they don't go away after 3 weeks, the canker sores get more / more wide / red / painful, go to the doctor immediately to be given the right medication.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
