After suffering a week of teethache, a big ugly ulcer showed up on the gum just above my front teeth… Below are info I got from the net:
Gum ulcer is a form of mouth ulcer. Most mouth ulcers appear on the inside part of the cheeks, though they also are found on gums (gum ulcer), under the tongue, and the inside part of the lips. These are quite small to look at, but extremely painful often making drinking and eating an ordeal.
There are many things that are believed to cause mouth ulcers - viruses, weak immune system, Crohn's Diseases, acute gastritis, stress, hormonal changes in the body, allergies and so on. Doctors usually recommend that you take an allergy test to find out whether the eruption of mouth ulcers is due to any allergy or any other reason. Vitamin and mineral deficiency also are known to cause this problem and this can be treated by simply making up for the deficiency with the help of health supplements.
There are times when you would be unable to identify the exact reason that causes your gum ulcer. At such times the best approach is to use herbal or natural remedies for your problem. There are many such cures out there that would provide you fast relief no matter what causes the gum ulcer.
…. I have been on starvation mode for nearly a month, maybe that’s how I got Vitamin deficiency?
