Thrills can be caused by problems in the digestive system
Thrills, those yellowish and painful ulcers that appear on the mucous membranes may be caused by various imbalances in the body, but when they last weeks and are followed by new wounds they may indicate gastrointestinal problems and poor diet. If the duration and severity of thrush call for attention, one should seek a dentist or doctor, who may be a gastroenterologist, a head and neck specialist, or a buccomaxillary surgeon.
According to the gastroenterologist and hepatologist of the Federation Marta Deguti, some symptoms that can accompany canker sores in more severe cases are bleeding, pain, swelling, redness, white patches, bad breath, fever, severe weight loss, digestive haemorrhage, arthritis, diarrhea, skin sores, mastitis, gingivitis, or bite.

Usually, when they are concentrated in the mouth, canker sores are not usually associated with serious disturbances. But if they appear in organs of the digestive system, such as esophagus, stomach and intestine, they may be signs of autoimmune inflammatory diseases.
In cases where canker sores appear very frequently over the years without definite cause, the person may have the which is called aphthous stomatitis or recurrent aphthous disease. "A lot of people begin to manifest the problem even in childhood, and this is softening with age," explains the specialist. The disorder is more common in women of European origin, nonsmokers and in a higher socioeconomic condition.
Frequency and severity of canker sores may be affected by smoking and improper diet
According to Marta, there is a genetic influence on the onset of aphthous stomatitis. "Approximately 40% of people with the disease report that there are more cases in the family. There are also women who associate it with the female hormones and report improvement during pregnancy," he says. The frequency and severity of these canker sores can be affected by smoking and food to which each person is sensitive. The most common complaints are chocolate, peanut butter, strawberry, cheese, coffee, tomatoes and preservatives.
Treatment for canker sores can be done with a mouthful of warm water with half a teaspoon of salt or with solutions antiseptics (chlorhexidine, povidone, hydrogen peroxide). The doctor also recommends the application of corticosteroids and local anesthetics, such as triamcinolone and lidocaine. She points out that if there is no relief from symptoms, it is important to seek help from a specialist to find the causative agent and the most appropriate form of cure.
How to resolve the issue may change according to the cause. When the reason why ulcers arise is wrong chewing and brushing, nail-biting or bulimia nervosa, the dentist will take care of the subject. If the reason is the use of some medicine, a doctor should be responsible for choosing a method to lessen or exterminate the problem.
When the situation worsens, it may be because the person's immunity is shaken. "Thrills can be complicated by bacterial infections and necrosis, especially in people who smoke, so a careful assessment is needed to rule out the possibility that it is actually a malignant tumor of the mouth," says Marta.
