i had mouth ulcers just before i went on holiday god it was agony i tried gurguling with salt and water soothed it a bit but not much you could try a mouthwash or buy a soothing gel that numbs it for a few hours.

I have had mouth ulcers all my life although they have improved in the last 2 years with the food sensitivity testing and restrictive diet. My disease remains elusive so they do not necessarily mean a bad case of crohn's. Unless most of my disease is in my mouth and upper gi tract, haven't discussed that yet with my gi doctor.
10 years, many tests, 3 gi doctors, Pentasa 1000mg 3x day
diovan, simvastatin and now trying good ol' zoloft
