Mouth Ulcers

There is some scientific evidence that mouth ulcers respond to rinsing with Chlorhexidine Solution x 3 per day. There is no evidence, that other treatments work and there is no point to make a doctor’s appointment in all but the most severe cases.

In severe cases of multiple mouth ulcer or the patient being overall quite unwell, call your GP or 111.  A mouth ulcer that has not resolved after 2 weeks should be seen by your GP
