    I have this problem since 10th class and is recurrent after 1 year. That time I used to take Riconia Cap 2 b.d after meal.
    Can I take Reconia tab now? I have indigestion problem. Doctor told me it's because of anxiety. I have done whole body test include iron and thyroid. But was detected with only 1 mm one gallstone.

  • Aphthous ulcers better known as Canker sores are small, shallow lesions that develop on the soft tissues in the mouth or near the base of gums. Aphthous ulcers will not occur on the surface of lips and they aren't contagious
    Topical tetracyclines may reduce the severity of ulceration, but they do not alter the recurrence rate. A doxycycline capsule of 100 mg in 10 mL of water administered as a mouth rinse for 3 minutes or tetracycline 500 mg plus nicotinamide 500 mg administered 4 times daily may provide relief and reduce ulcer duration. Avoid tetracyclines in children younger than 12 years who might ingest them and develop tooth staining.
    Chlorhexidine gluconate and bioadhesive (Gelclair) mouth rinses reduce the severity and pain.
    This is the general treatment. But in your case, you say it is reoccurring. I advise sincerely, to consult a doctor and then decide on the course of action.

    always confident
