Yes nurse, They started about a week ago and I’ve had them several times now.

But Patricia, that could be a contributing factor. Let’s explore a bit more. Could you tell me some information about you? Like general health habits, oral hygiene, etc.?

Good to  patricia. Have you noticed any other symptoms or changes in your daily routine?

Patricia Let’s delve into the diverse causes of mouth ulcers. Accidental biting of the cheek or lip is one potential contributor to ulcers. Another factor to consider is injury from hard bristled toothbrushes or overly vigorous brushing can lead to ulcers. Chemical irritation from toothpaste or mouthwash is yet another aspect. Along with the consumption of hot food or drinks has the potential to induce burns in the mouth contributing to ulcer development.

Additionally, stress and hormonal changes represent significant overarching factors. Patricia from our discussion could you identify any of these elements that resonate with your experience?
