CNY just over,
ate a lot of goodies,
i have a heaty body which = to ulcer breakout!

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.. :cry:

Then it's so irritating, it's hard to talk some times, especially bad if i'm meeting clients. :cry:

Get oracort.

Drink lots of water, apply the oracort before you sleep as well, I note that ulcers tend to grow when you sleep. So oracort would stop the growth and keep it at it's 'infant' stage.

use kenelog or oracort, its a steriod based ulcer gel. usually takes about a day or two for the ulcer to recover straight after i use it. Very effective. If you want it to recover even faster. Use salt to clean the "white" area of the ulcer. you'll see a lil blood.
after that. apply the ulcer gel on it. that'll stop hurting by the next morning. ( well that works for me, dunno about you.) Cheers

try a gel called bonjela, you can get it from the pharmacy. Stings like crazy when you first put it on, but it works very well!

There is a kind of Chinese medicine in the form of a green powder. It has strong herbal taste with mint and quite bitter. I used to apply that to my ulcers and remember it being quite effective. Maybe you can check with Chinese medicine stores.

I often get multiple ulcers and I have tried various remedy, from bonjela to "si gua xuang" but nothing seems to be as effectve as salt. :sweat:

kenelog gel's the way to go!
Second to that! I get month ulcers at least twice a month after returning to Singapore. Kenelog is indeed the best ulcer medicine available. I find it a bit pricy though. ($10.50 at Guardian, $10.30 at Unity) Being a typical "Kiasu" Singaporean, I have a tube each at home, in my office and inside my attache.

The permanent way to get rid of month ulcer is to move to colder countries. Never once had an ulcer during my 8 years stay in the US. Cold sores are common, however.

Kenelog is the one! Bonjela not in the same league. If Kenalog doesnt work, nothing else will!
