I was wondering how many people here have had or have cankers? I know prior to my Dx I cannot remember for how long prior but I seemed to always have a canker in my mouth when I was a child. I was Dx at 8 and when placed on meds I cannot tell you the last time I had a canker sore or if I do one that lasts for a long time. I often wonder if it was CD in my mother and not a traditional canker however I have never been Dx with CD anywhere above my ileum all there and colon and rectum.
This makes me wonder if it is a small canker I have currently I happened to have a bump on the inside of my lip 4 or 5 nights ago and while eating dinner I bit this raised sore area and bit it hard enough to bleed. wondering if I had nto developed a canker and then bit it. It stings is swollen and hurts badly when I eat just about anything especially if it is acidic in any way. Does anyone know if the item Canker cover is safe for us chronies I know my step son was given one from the dentist and it helped make it heal in 24 hours for him but I am leary it may make things worse if it is a canker from cd
