painful mouth ulcers

i am a 45 year male. since childhood i had problems digesting milk. Since childhood i have been suffering from painful mouth ulcers. they occur after taking some foods like milk, milk products like cheese, paneer, yogurt etc. they also occur if i take oily foods and onion. first the mouth becomes dry and i feel thirsty. then the tongue and the cheeks become sticky and then they break down to form ulcers which are extremely painful and has very distinct margins. surrounding area is indurated and sometimes the base of ulcer is dirty white. soon pain spreads to throat, ears and glands below the mandible get swollen and painful. i have tried antibiotics, pain killers, mouth gels etc. in homeo i have tried merc.sol 30, belladona 30 and pulsatilla 200. due to dryness i have tried bryonia 200 and also sometimes arsenic alb 200. but these have been half hearted and sporadic trials. please advise.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Though this is your cheif complaint, it is only part of the picture.

We need to know your desires, aversions, your reactions to various stimuli like heat and cold, your general make up, like what sort of a person you are, calm,methodical, or angry, impulsive etc.etc.

You have to answer lot many questions, before you arrive at the correct medicine. There are no quick fixes in homeopathy.

So, start talking about yourself. We need more I symptoms, Like I am timid, I like cold, I prefer hot drinks etc.

Also tell us about what probably could have triggered this problem.

So, start talking. : )

These are the probable medicines for aphthae: (Mouth ulcers)

Mouth, aphthæ : acet-ac., aeth., agar., all-s., alum., anan., apis., arg-m., ars-i., ars., arum-t., asim., aur-m., aur-s., aur., bapt., berb., bor., brom., bry., calc., canth., caps., carb-ac., carb-an., carb-s., carb-v., caul., cean., cham., chin-a., chin., chlor., cic., clem., cocc., corn., cub., dig., dulc., ferr., gamb., hell., hep., hippoz., hydr., iod., jug-c., kali-ar., kali-bi., kali-br., kali-c., kali-chl., kali-i., kali-s., kreos., lac-c., lac-d., lach., lact-ac., lyc., mag-c., merc-c., merc., mur-ac., myric., nat-a., nat-c., nat-h., nat-m., nit-ac., nux-m., nux-v., ox-ac., phos., phyt., plan., plb., ran-s., sal-ac., sanic., sars., sec., sil., staph., sul-ac., sulph., ter., thu., vinc.

Nat.carb is one of them.

It may or may not suit. To avoid the guess work, we need more details.

Homeopathy is a highly individualistic therapy, and what suits one may not suit another, particularly in chronic problems.

Many doctors think the allopathic way, with homeo medicines. That may perhaps lead to palliation at best, and will never cure.

Natrum carb,dry sodium carbonate. Major indication:-chronic headache,neuropathia,neurosis due to weather conditions,DYSPEPSIA. Organ related,symptom and modalities. Autonomic(vegetative) nervous system,mucous membrane of upper respiratory tract,gastrointestinal tract. Application:- depression,physical laxness,mental apathy,headache when thunderstorm occured as well as to expore in sun.Craving to sleep by day.Many dyspeptic and meteoritic complaints followed by milk and carbohydrates.Dry cough and urge to clear the throat when entering in a warm room. Aggravation in the morning and after meals.Test result of the medicine in Germany pts +.So for oral thrush the medicine can be used for better assimillation of milk and carbohydrate.Thanks

Yes. Natrum carb is one of the many medicines for aggravation by milk.

Generalities, food, milk agg. : aeth., alum., ambr., ant-c., ant-t., arg-m., ars., brom., bry., calc-s., calc., carb-an., carb-s., carb-v., cham., chel., chin., cic., con., crot-t., cupr., ham., hell., ign., iris., kali-ar., kali-c., kali-i., kali-p., lac-d., lach., lyc., mag-c., mag-m., nat-a., nat-c., nat-m., nat-p., nat-s., nit-ac., nux-m., nux-v., ol-j., phos., psor., puls., rhus-t., sabin., samb., sep., sil., spong., stram., sul-ac., sulph., valer., zinc.

Stomach, indigestion, milk, after : aeth., ambr., ant-c., calc., chin., iris., mag-c., mag-m., nit-ac., nux-v., sulph.

If you combine these two symptoms alone,with the C.C aphthae, nat.carb doesn't cover the totality.

There are only six medicines that cover this totality.

sulph. nux-v. nit-ac. mag-c. chin. calc. aeth.

To decide which one among them will be useful for this individual, I need more details. If he gives more details the totality may change, and an altogether new remedy may emerge.

Sorry to inturrupt but thought I would share a very quick story to possibly help you. I sufered from mouth ulcers for years. Extremely painful ones that would last for 15 days each and it was at the point where I only was free from them for a few days per month. Someone mentioned to me to switch my toothpaste from the ones I buy at grocery store, to a natural type toothpaste. Immediately after I made the switch, ulcers have completely dissapeared. Ive had maybe 2 of them in the past couple of years and it has been wonderful.
Hope this may be of help to you or to someone else who may read this thread.

Hi Ryelink,thanks for your good achievement.Will you please favor me with the name of tooth paste? as i know only natrum fluoratum based tooth paste can protect dental decay and carries as well as to cure oral thrush.I appologize to disturb you again.Thanks

Dear docxtors thanks for the reply.
Desires: no particular desire or craving for sweets, salty or spicy food. in fact aversion for rich oily food. hate milk. like cold but susceptable to little cold or wet weather. even catch cold by hair growth on scalp causing sweating in scalp. like hot drinks, specially tea. it relieves pains and suffering but does not heal ulcers. i am a surgeon. balanced tempered. jovial with friends. not at all impulsive. since a surgeon i am calm in difficult conditions. ulcers definitely occur after oily foods, milk products and onion and garlic. as soon as i take these i get breath of onion and garlic, mouth becomes dry, mouth mucosa becomes inflammed, breaks down and causes ulcers. i feel dry and thirsty. for thirst i dont take lot of water at once. i take small amounts. ulcers are very painfull quickly leading to swelling of glands in the neck. pain also goes to throat. i like cold climate although i may catch cold. when summer comes i remain healthier but not tolerable. i use a naturral tooth paste- dabur red paste. i have not used chemical ones for last few years after i found that i remain better with these. my worst aggravating factor is oil, onion and milk. i am reasonable and not emotional. i am not taking any allopathy medicines. i would like to answer any other particular question kindly ask freely.

Dr.Haran ch malaker,

I used to use mainstream toothpaste brands such as Colgate, Crest or others.
I believe the culprt in these toothpastes is sodium lauryl sulfate which by the way is a carcinogen. I switched to the 'natural' toothpastes that dont contain this ingredient or flourides and like I said the problems I was suffering from for years immediately went away. I use a variety of natural brands now and they all have kept the mouth ulcers away as well as kept my and my families dental health in good condition. I find it intereting how on flouride toothpastes they have a warning not to swallow or use too much, well if this stuff is so toxic why the heck are people using it at all?

Good luck.

Dear drdipankar

I need some time to analyse your case. I will come back shortly.

I myself was a sufferer from these mouth ulcers, and know how painful they can be. I am cured now, thanks to homeopathy.

You can be helped. Give me some time.

Do you have constipation?

How regular are your bowel movements? Anything abnormal?

gavinimurthy last decade
sorry to be late sir,
i have no trouble in bowel movement. once every morning. if i take milk it becomes loose. if i take anything made of concentrated milk it causes colicky pain with loose motion. motions are usually on looser side than constipation. hope this will help. thanks for replies.

I thought you have left for good. : )

Procure Nitric acid 200C liquid potency and come back for further guidance, after you have it in hand.
