I’ve had horrible episodes where my mouth literally fills up with ulcers; I had 27 at one time!! The best thing I found, after trying pharmacist-recommended treatments, is half a cup of hot (as hot as you can handle it) water, with a LOT of salt (salty as you can manage) – swish it around and hold it in your mouth (it will sting) for as long as you can manage. Do this as often as possible, making sure that it isn’t doing any damage (you don’t want them to bleed but you do want them to sting) – this cleared mine up faster than anything else, if I did it regularly throughout the day.
Hope this helps
I was on LTD from work until sept when they decided that i can return to work as there is a bathroom at work so that solves my crohns disease problem. I haven't returned cause im sick all the time and a bathroom does NOT solve all my problems. I live in Canada our federal disability is Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP-D). Ufortunately i just got my letter this week that i was denied so i now have to go see a lawyer and see my options (i have been off work since sept 2007). Did you have these problems or does the states rec crohn's as a disabiling disease?????????? Did you have to fight for benefits too?????
ya i had sores so bad down my throat the swelling was so bad i could hardly breath i was put on 100mg pred and luckily it worked cause if it didn't they were admitting me to intabate me. Ya hurts like hell but its a good excuse to send hubby out for ice cream lol, check with your dentist if the sores are reachable (more in your mouth) they can use a laser on them and it will speed the healing up on them immensely and be careful i mine once became infected and abcessed NOT GOOD hurt like H E double hockey sticks and omg did my face swell looked like rocky - to prevent this or if you think it is ever starting you can rinse with peroxide (dont swallow and yes tastes like crap but hey were use to all those crappy preps lol) but it helped clear it up fast the fistule and all.
