Mouth ulcers or aphthous ulcers are painful open sores or lesions that are mostly found inside the mouth, either singly or in clusters. Mouth ulcers are extremely common and most prevalence among the global population. Mouth ulcers treatment can range from simply smoothing or removing a local cause of trauma, to addressing underlying factors such as dry mouth or substituting a problem medication. Maintaining good oral hygiene and use of an antiseptic mouthwash or spray (e.g. chlorhexidine) can prevent secondary infection and therefore hasten healing. A topical analgesic (e.g. benzydamine mouthwash) may reduce pain. Topical (gels, creams or inhalers) or systemic steroids may be used to reduce inflammation. An antifungal drug may be used to prevent oral candidiasis developing in those who use prolonged steroids. Various classes of drugs such as corticosteroid, analgesic, anesthetic, antihistamine and antimicrobial are utilized for the treatment of mouth ulcers.
