Posted on 10/4/18 4:39 AM
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.

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! ?
