CANKER SORE

Canker sore,also called Aphthous ulcers, are typically painful red and puffy skin blisters or sores found on inner lips,cheeks, tongue and mouth roof. Sometimes they appear all white and sometimes yellow and sometimes they have a small red border surrounding them.Causes discomfort while a person is eating or speaking, or essentially using the part of the mouth where the canker sore exists. Canker sores usually develop from a minor injury, such as hard brushing of your teeth and gums, accidentally biting your cheek, and playing sports, or they may even result from stress.Further worsened by highly acidic or spicy foods/substances intake.
