In a recent article, it discussed how mouth ulcers are experienced by 20 - 50 % of those diagnosed with Crohn's at some point. It also discussed other Crohn's symptoms of the mouth, such as bad breath, bleeding gums, dental decay, dry mouth, inflamed lips, redness/scaling around lips, and/or inflamed/red tongue (glossitis).
Have you experienced any Crohn's symptoms of the mouth?
Do you know what caused the symptoms? (reaction to a medication, vitamin dificiency, inflammation linked to Crohn's, etc.)
How did you / are you treating the symptoms?
I have had mouth sores before and my doctor prescribed some magic mouthwash to take and they cleared up in two days.
What mouthwash @Kelli1126
My doctor called it magic mouthwash if you Google search it will pull it up they prescribe it to chemo patients for mouth sores but this stuff works awesome.
I experience mouth issues, especially @ flares or increased inflammation of any type. I really think it's ALL related~Mouth sores/dry & red or chapped lips/tongue sores & irritation/bad breath...The Rx for "Magic Mouthwash" is the best...a mix of antacid/benadryl/nystatin/lidocaine...pretty pricey but works wonders & lasts quite awhile. Aphthous ulcers (Canker sores) are not "cold sores" in that they're not contagious & occur on soft mouth or gum/throat tissues. Along with "thrush" caused by yeast overgrowth. BUT they are VERY painful & eating irritates without treatment. Causes include stress/autoimmune disorders/vitamin deficiencies or acidic foods. Watch use of Toothpaste/Mouthwash w/sodium lauryl sulfate. Immunosuppressive medications can trigger too. I find that OTC Peroxyl is helpful OR mix a teaspoon of baking soda or salt in 1/2 cup water & swish in mouth & spit out. Hope this is helpful! ?
