Aphthous ulcers or canker sores can be a big problem for those who are prone to them. The following question is a good example of how these sores impact daily life.
Hi Taini, I'm sorry your daughter is having so much trouble. Halitosis is a separate issue.
But she should see a dentist to get a diagnosis and treatment recommendation.
One possibility is a condition called recurring aphthous ulcers.
Aphthous ulcers are also called canker sores and can occur anywhere in the mouth.
They can be any size and sometimes are quite large. Aphthous ulcers are white, roundish and slightly concave.
The cause is unknown but there are triggers
They are more common in women and one sore typically takes one week to ten days to heal.
For those who have many sores that occur frequently, like your daughter, the condition is chronic or constant.
Once you have a definite diagnosis, she can try to control the outbreaks. Pay attention to times when they are most severe and try to figure out what is triggering them.
There are some prescription rinses made by compounding pharmacies that will help control the pain. Ask your dentist.
It's important that she sees a dentist soon so she can know for sure and find some relief from the pain.
