Mouth ulcers are small, painful, superficial ulcerations of the skin which are found on inside of the mouth on the tongue, inner cheeks, or lips.
Ulcers can be caused by stress; an overly acidic diet; B vitamin or zinc deficiencies; or food allergies.
• Zinc is important for skin healing. Zinc deficiency is often associated with mouth ulcers.
• Gengigel can be dabbed on to ulcers for speedy healing.
• B Vitamins are helpful for stress support and the growth of healthy skin.
