Since I am vegetarian, may be I don’t obtain required amount of all the components of Vitamin B complex from my diet. The sores that come in the gums or other parts of the oral cavity, I believe, are but the manifestation of the clinical deficiency of the vitamins.
Sometimes, may be because of stress, similar lesions occur. And, sometimes because of digestive problems spots alike develop.
Such lesions then after four or five days develop into ulceration. If I am not wrong, that is called Apthus ulcer then in clinical terminology.
Even though I start taking B-complex capsules, the ulcer doesn’t heal quickly. Instead, it sees infection. And, this is a frequent problem I come across.
It’s most probable that the infection is staphylococcal. Anyways, yet I haven’t cultured any sample.
Right now, I have got Apthus ulcer in two places. One is in the lower right gum—just below the canine tooth in the border of the gum and the inner side of the bottom part of the lower lip. Another is in the similar position but it is in the upper jaw just above the first molar.
The upper one is already infected now. It’s paining like hell. I just washed mouth with hot brine. May be it will be of help. I have an antiseptic pain-relieving gel. It stinks, and after applying the gel ten litres of saliva is produced and I feel I spit every minute. So I don’t want to use it now.
But if infection spreads, this gel with Choline salicylate and Benzalkonium chloride solution as its components will be the Hobson’s choice.
Furthermore, if again the infection doesn’t get controlled I will have to resort to antibiotic capsules. However, at present there is no source here that would provide me with free samples. They are really expensive. Hope I would not need the antibiotics.
