Treatment for Stomatitis and Mouth Ulcers

Stomatitis is inflammation of the mucous lining of any of the soft-tissue structures in the mouth
– including the cheeks, gums, tongue, lips, and roof or floor of the mouth. Stomatitis can be caused by conditions in the mouth, including poor oral hygiene, ill-fitting dentures, burns from hot food or drinks, or by conditions that affect the entire body -- medications, allergic reactions, or infections. Severe iron deficiency can cause stomatitis.

Generalized or contact stomatitis can result from excessive use of alcohol, spices, hot food, or tobacco. Mouthwashes, toothpastes, and lipstick can sometimes irritate the lining of the mouth. Exposure to heavy metals, such as mercury and leadcan cause stomatitis. Thrush, a fungal infection, is also a type of stomatitis.

Stomatitis is usually painful. It involves redness, swelling, and occasionally, bleeding. Bad breath may also be a symptom.
