This book describes Aphthous Mouth Ulcer, Diagnosis and Treatment and Related Diseases Aphthous Mouth Ulcers are painful open sores or ulcers in the mouth. They may appear red or yellow in color Aphthous Mouth Ulcers are normally found on the mouth such as the tongue or the inner linings of the lips and cheeks. The ulcers or sores start as small round or oval reddish swellings which then burst within a day. A thin white or yellow membrane covered the burst sores surrounded by a red well demarcated margin. Aphthous Mouth Ulcers vary in size from an eighth of an inch wide in mild cases to more than an inch wide in severe cases. In severe cases, Aphthous Mouth Ulcers may form scars Aphthous Mouth Ulcers happen either singly or in clusters, causing a lot of discomfort or pain. They normally resolve within 7 to 10 days. Fever is not frequent. Normally a person will only have one or a few Aphthous Mouth Ulcers during the episode. Most people have Aphthous Mouth Ulcers between the ages of 10 and 20. The ulcers or sores are rarely linked with other diseases. Most people will have only one or two episodes a year while some other people can have a continuous period of Aphthous Mouth Ulcers Aphthous Mouth Ulcers are also called Canker sores, not cold sores. Aphthous Mouth Ulcers are little, superficial sores that form on the soft mucosa in the mouth or at the base of the gums.
