What Are These Mysterious Spots In Your Mouth And How To Get Rid of Them


Apthous ulcers, more commonly known as Canker Sores, are painful, temporary sores that can occur anywhere in the mouth. Although the cause of these are unknown, biting your cheek/lip, stress, environmental factors, medication, immune system malfunction could be possible factors why they occur in one's life. 

Canker Sores appear as white or yellowish spot surrounded by red inflamed soft tissue. They are not contagious, but they can appear one at a time or as a group and can cause a tingling sensation in your mouth.


They usually heal within one to three weeks without treatment, although the pain normally goes away in 7 to 10 days. Serious canker sores may take up to six weeks to heal.


Below are few simple home remedies to alleviate the pain which causes these pesky spots in your mouth:

1. WARM SALT WATER




Gargling with salt water helps in reducing the painful swelling of the cells in the mucous membrane and at the back of the throat. The warm water also produces a general sense of soothing relief, while the salt may help keep the area clean. Rinse your mouth for 30 seconds to help your canker sore heal. 


2. Ice


To soothe canker sores and reduce inflammation, suck on small ice cubes or chips. The coldness of the ice slows down blood flow to the canker sore, thereby reducing pain and swelling.


3. Yogurt





Alleviate soreness by eating this simple healthy remedy that may help balance out bacteria in your mouth.The passage of friendly bacteria from probiotics through the mouth helps the canker sore to calm down and heal, and the smooth, coolness of yogurt helps with pain.

4. Aloe Vera Gel





This plant really do wonders! The gel when applied directly to the sore speeds healing and reduces pain. Another way is to make a rinse out of it, by adding 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel and 1 table spoon of water. Stir them together and swish gently over the sore three times a day.



Tips and Prevention:

Canker Sores may recur, but you can reduce their frequency by following these steps:
  • Avoid foods that can irritate your mouth such as acidic and spicy foods
  • Choose foods that are healthy like fruits, vegetables and whole grain to prevent nutritional deficiencies.
  • Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing with a soft bristle toothbrush and regular flossing.
  • Reduce your stress and anxiety levels
  • If you have braces, protect your mouth by using orthodontic waxes recommended by your dentist.

Kaya ang gagawin ay ilalagay muna ito sa ref upang mas mapatagal ang 'freshness' nito.  Ngunit kung nakaligtaan kung ilang araw o linggo na itong nabili, alam mo ba kung paano ka makakasiguro na pwede mo pa itong iluto at kainin? Narito ang mga paraan kung paaano mache-check kung luma na o fresh pa ang itlog. 1. Sniff Test Sa pamamagitan ng sniff test o ang pag-amoy, malalaman kung ang itlog ay luma na. Ang nalumang itlog ay mayroong masangsang na amoy kahit hindi mo pa ito binubuksan. Kung wala naman itong amoy, ay maaari pa itong lutuin at kainin. Kung hindi ka pa rin sigurado, basagin ang itlog at amuyin ito kung mayroong masamang amoy. Dahil kung mayroon ay itapon na ito agad agad. 2.
