    erm think my remedy has to be the most unique..
    Beer

    I dunno if its the alcohol (never tried wine) or the high vitamin B in it. but after drinking beer my ulcers heals faster. (usually the next day)
    but must really let the ulcer soak in the beer.

    heh you try leh.. I would love to hear if it works on others. Cos it hurts less than the rest and works best for me.

    Further preventive measures can be taken by making sure your tooth brush and rinse cup is free from contact with creepy crawlies like lizards, roaches etc.

    I AGREE ON THIS!!

    One tip: Store it in the refrigerator first.. So when its cold already, you will at least get a cooling sensation. Not that stinging. Mum tipped me on this.... She does that.
    Have you read IT???

    Has it been proven that light kissers have lesser chance of having mouth ulcers than heavy kissers?

    Actually, I've asked this before and it is not on the controlled drug list, but I heard from pharmacy that the company did not apply for exemption or something ... is that true Dr Streetshooter?

    The other good thing for ulcer is bactidoor (not sure the exact spelling), it is red in colour mouth rinse. Rinse before bed, usually will take care of minor sore throat and ulcers.

    Colder countries... Where? I stayed in Rochester. NY. Temperature over there can go as low as -20 to -15 degree F. Ever got frost bite before? I did.... in January 1997.

    I can eat tons and tons of chocolate and french fries while staying there. Try this feat in Singapore and I am sure to get at least three ulcers the next day.

    Yes, you can use this method for mouth ulcers too. My father does the exact same whenever he has them. Poor man's Kenelog.

    My opinion on why salt work for some and not for all. Correct me if I'm wrong. Salt water will actually 'cause' the membrane(cytoplasm) of the bacteria to shrink/swell (Depending which direction of flow of water concentration) and die, through a process called osmosis. This is true on the white blood cells also. Thus different concentration of the salt water will have different effect on the bacteria and the WBC.

    Some of us put in lotsa salt, high concentration result killing almost every single cells, thus become worst. Some may put in just the right amount, which kills only the bacteria, thus become better.

    Any kind doc out there willing to shed more light on this ?

    Er ... Difflam comes in Gargle, Lozegenes and mouth gel, it will only numb your mouth and throat. I used it very often to numb my throat from tonsilities..... so I can eat without pain .

    it's really uncomfortable, is there any good and fast methods to get rid of them or to prevent them (other than drinking lotsa water)?

    Today i counted 3, 1 on gum, 1 on tongue, 1 on upper lips, i got 2 mini ones at the tip of my tongue - just recovered..
    I tried rubbing salt, applying medication, but it usually take a few days to go disappear..

    Then it's so irritating, it's hard to talk some times, especially bad if i'm meeting clients.
    I use Orased Jel for relieve. Think it's better than Bonjela, which I think is quite useless.
