(NaturalNews) Anyone who suffers from mouth ulcers knows how painful and irritating they can be. In severe cases multiple ulcers may appear and the discomfort can make talking and eating difficult. But what causes these little sores? And how can you get rid of them naturally?

An ulcer is an open sore that appears in the soft tissue of the mouth. There can be many reasons why ulcers may appear such as prescription drugs and infectious diseases such as thrush or herpes. But poor oral hygiene, accidental biting of the lip, tongue or cheek and constant rubbing against sharp misaligned teeth or braces are the main causes behind the annoying little sores. There are those who regularly get multiple mouth ulcers for no specific reason at all. In fact it is thought that around 20% of the American population suffers from what are known as aphthous ulcers. This type of ulcer may appear during times of stress or trauma and in some cases may be due to a vitamin and mineral deficiency.

Home Remedies

If your ulcers are mainly due to a poor diet there are some simple steps that you can take to prevent them. Eat more fruit and veggies and foods that are rich in vitamin B as these are thought to work wonders. Avoid eating hot and spicy foods as these can irritate your mouth and make you more prone to ulcers.

Coconut oil is fast becoming known as a great home remedy for a number of things including curing mouth ulcers. Coconut oil has been used in many so called primitive societies for centuries as one of their main healing tools. Sore throats, skin infections, dysentery, fevers and flu were all treated with coconut oil. But it is the modern day trials and studies that have shown that coconut oil kills certain types of bacteria that make it a great home remedy for mouth ulcers. Simply rub some of the oil directly on to your ulcers twice a day and you should notice a massive difference.

There is several different mouth washes that you can make up that are thought to kill the ulcer causing bacteria. Try mixing a little tee tree oil in some hot water and gargle with it twice a day, but make sure you never swallow the mixture as tee tree can be poisonous. You can also rub salt or baking soda directly on to the wounds, these are thought to ease the pain and discomfort as well as help shorten the recovery time.

As with most mouth infections the best way to combat mouth ulcers is through basic oral hygiene. Make sure you brush and floss your teeth twice a day and give it a rinse with a mouth wash before bed. These are simple steps that could save you a lot of pain.
