I get mouth sores at times during a Crohn's flare.  They were like ulcers and very painful.  I would call your GI office and ask them what you should do. 
Hope you start feeling better soon!
Crohn's since age 18, Dx in August 2006 at the age of 23.  Crohn's discovered after botched fistula surgery.  Doctor tells me all but the middle 4-5 ft of small intestine is affected with a stricture.  The good news is I have been in remission since Sept. 2006 with 100mg of Imuran daily.

I also get a sore mouth. I think with this, and what you said in your other post, you need to let you GI know.

Call the GI. Could be a Yeast infection. I think it's what they call Thrush. [Could be wrong though] Dentist could help so I would call both.

This happens to me a lot. Especially if I on preds.

Also I heard it can have something to do with a lack of vitiam C and potassium. I'm real unsure about that info.

I make a mouthwash that I rinse with that helps. Mix equal parts benadryl[sp] and immodium AD[I think I'll have to double check] Keep in frig.

Pharmacist can make it called magic mouthwash. They can put stuff in their mix that kill the thrush and numb the sores.

I hate it! when the sores go past my mouth and into the throat I lose my voice altogether. And it can cause bad acid reflux [if it's an infection]. I end up with a throat I would swear was strep. When this happens I call the ear, nose and throat.

Sorry hope it improves. Watch after you'r teeth. I get my teeth cleaned every 3 months as opposed to every 6 months.

I had mouth sores when I was first diagnosed.  Canker like sores that hurt really bad.  They could be a sign of a flare.  Call your GI and let him know. 

Good luck!
