I don't get sores or ulcers, but for some reason I bite my tongue or the inside of my mouth a lot. And of course, once bitten, it gets in the way and gets bitten over and over. The ones on my tongue can get really painful as they scrape on my teeth every time I talk, swallow or eat.
I get an antiseptic mouth wash from my dentist. He gives it after any kind of dental surgery to speed the healing. It's called Peridex, and I keep a bottle around all the time.
