Mouth Ulcers

I have a terrible habit (worse when I am worrying about something) where I pick and bite the skin off my lip and inside my cheek (very attractive!)Anyway, the other night (tuesday, I think) I was biting away, and managed to remove half of the skin in my mouth, and now I have what can only be described as a yellow/white ulcer looking thing, around 1cm in diameter. Its grating against my teeth and painful when I talk and eat. I have tried using Bonjella, but that just gets wiped off within minutes. Still, at least this is helping my diet.... went to the pub today, and had a bagette - and could only eat the inside filling (roast beef - yum!)

Bonjela is rubbish, you want some stuff called Anbesol, it's great.

I have the same habit hun, it is devastatingly attractive :D

thanks fp - I am off out to Asda's later (exciting friday night ahead of me!) so will look down their medicine aisle to see if they sell it. If not, I shall pop into the chemist tomorrow :)

Emerson... Bonjella is rather tasty, isnt it! Comes in handy when I run out of aniseed twists!

No more stressed than usual.... its just a terrible habit I have (picking and biting my lip and inside cheek!) There was a bit of loose skin in my mouth, so I grabbed it a pulled... and took half the skin off in my mouth!

I can't offer any help here, unfortunately. I sort of half have the habit, in that I often 'play with' the innards of the skin in my mouth, but don't tend to bite them off.

I found that Corsydil (sp?) is very good at getting rid of ulcers...I used to get mouth-loads of them whenever I got down...If you make sure that you always have a bottle of Corsidyl handy, you can nip the ulcers in the bud whenever you start to get one... :D:D:D

As for Bonjela? I just eat it like sweets, and it does bugger-all anyway! :unsure: :unsure:

Common habit - I have it too *blush* I always find neat TCP on cottonwool pressed against affected area does wonders too.

My little brother is suffering from the same ailment and mom bought bonjela gel; http://www.drugdelivery.ca/s33758-s-BONJELA-GEL.aspx for him. When mom applied the gel on the affected area…oh God my brother screamed so loud. I guess it caused him too much of pain but after a few seconds he clamed down and was telling mom that he feels okay. but I don’t understand one thing how do you hurt yourself all the time? You need to be more precautious
