Cold Sores

Cold Sores

Let's talk cold sores and mouth ulcers.

Who gets them, how often?

Have you mentioned it to your rheumy or doctor and what's their verdict?

I get them often, today in have a beastie growing in the corner of my mouth and on the side of my tongue I can feel an ulcer coming.

But I get the absolute worst on or around my lower lip line.

Who else experiences this. None of the OT stuff works and for the ulcers I just swish with salt water.

So I'm interested to know who else gets this?

use apple cider vinegar , get a mouth full, swish it around in your mouth(hard to do) and spit it out.. dab some on the lip sores with cotton,, several times a day. this seems to work better than any thing else I have ever found. even works for my husband and friends.. nasty to taste but it works!

Coconut oil is becoming more popular as said to have lots of health benefits. Can be found in most supermarkets beside cooking oils. I use it to whiten teeth, moisture skin and digestive for bloated tummy and have noticed a difference my problem at the moment is not using consist due to being in between 2 homes but definitely recommend it
Apple cider vinegar from Holland and Barrett also has no of health benefits and reduces inflammation. Google them and read up the uses and benefits of them
