Oral ulcer is a disease of oral mucosa, with different sizes of affected parts, concave ulcer surface and congestion around. Oral ulcer has become one of the most common diseases bothering human beings. Fairbanks, M.D., an ear, nose and throat doctor, said that such diseases have existed since the very beginning of human evolution. The occurrence of oral ulcer is not necessarily due to “getting angry” in summer. In addition to the lack of vitamin C, iron and folic acid, psychological pressure is also one of the important reasons for oral ulcer.
The treatment time of oral ulcer is generally 10 to 14 days. Most people will suffer from oral ulcer occasionally, while a small number of people are often disturbed. Those patients who often suffer from oral ulcers may suffer from diseases related to the immune system, so they should seek medical help in time. Other people who only occasionally suffer from oral ulcers do not need to worry. They just need to eat more fruits and vegetables, relax and have a good rest.
Oral ulcers initially appear as tiny blisters, but they will develop into wound like ulcers within a few days. Any irritating food, such as spicy cabbage, sour strawberries or salty dried peanuts, is extremely painful to the nerves exposed in the mouth. Louis, a professor of oral pathology at Virginia dental school, said: “some patients said that their tongues hurt as if they had been pierced with many small holes by a needle when describing their condition, as if they would rather have an operation than endure this pain again. However, some patients said that they did not feel very painful although they had ulcers all over their mouths.”
In order to avoid oral ulcer, we should pay attention to the following details in daily life:
1. Pay attention to protecting the oral cavity
Any practice that damages the inner wall of the mouth should be avoided, such as food overheating or inner wall pressure, which will lead to oral ulcer. At the same time, we should also correct the bad habits of lip biting and tongue biting.
2. Light diet
According to some patients who often suffer from oral ulcers, they are prone to oral ulcers every time they eat too spicy or sour food. Therefore, we can carefully observe which food we often eat in our daily life will cause oral ulcers. Once it is determined, I will not eat or eat less of this food in the future. If you still suffer from oral ulcer after stopping eating this food, you should find another cause.
3. Relieve pressure
Psychological stress is also one of the causes of oral ulcer. Arrange time for physical exercise every week, and proper venting is conducive to relieving pressure. You can also calm down and relax yourself by listening to soothing music, meditating and sitting.
4. Relieve constipation
Chinese medicine believes that unobstructed stool can reduce the probability of oral ulcer. Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables can help clean up the intestines and stomach. At the same time, pay attention to supplementing vitamin B2, vitamin C and zinc.
