Aphthous Ulcers Information and Treatment

Aphthous ulcers are also known as canker sores. They are temporary sores that may occur anywhere in the mouth except on the gums, lips, or roof of the mouth. Benign as burning or tingling sensation and tend to be small and shallow. Women are generally affected more often than men. A red spot or bump usually forms,which develops into an open ulcer. They can occur one at a time or as a group of sores. Although these sores are not serious, other mouth sores may be. Aphthous ulcers that occur in conjunction with symptoms of uveitis, genital ulcerations, conjunctivitis, arthritis, fever or adenopathy should prompt a search for a serious etiology.

Aphthous ulcers are a common and painful problem. The term "aphthous" is a derivative of the Greek word "aphtha" which means ulceration. They are a shallow ulcer with a white or whitish/yellow base surrounded by a reddish border. Canker sores usually appear on the inner surface of the cheeks and lips, tongue, soft palate, and the base of the gums. Aphthous Ulcers is a very common type of skin disorders but is very dangerous also. Aphthous ulcers are single or multiple ulcers of the inside of the mouth that tend to recur. The lesions may affect patients at any age although the peak occurrence is in young adults. The ulcers are shallow and are often accompanied by soreness and pain.  The ulcers usually last one to two weeks.
