Ulcer - mouth

Canker sore

A mouth ulcer, aphthous stomatitis or canker sore is a painful, open sore in the mouth. At least 10% of people suffer from them. They usually appear on the insides of the cheeks and lips, tongue, soft palate, and the base of the gums. They have a white / grey / yellow shallow pit surrounded by a red area. Cankers are usually the size of a pin head or match head, but can be up to 10mm (0.4 inch) or more in severe cases. They can occur on their own, or in groups. People get them at any age, but they usually first appear between the ages of 10 and 40. They affect women more often than men, and tend to run in families

The first symptom is usually a tingling or burning. The smallest ulcers can heal in a day or two, larger in 1 - 3 weeks. They often return
