Q & A

Almost 3 years ago I quit smoking. After I quit I started to develop canker sores in my mouth. I have been to many doctors and done my research on line with no cure. I h ave altered my diet, switched my toothpaste but still no cure. There not as bad as they once were. I have even been on steroids at one time because I had 7 in my mouth at one time. Have anyone heard of this.

    • Tammy have you visited a dentist?  I ask because my dad smoked for years then quit cold turkey and then years later he had problems occur as a result of smoking.  I was thinking perhaps your best bet might be a dentist.  Good luck and keep us posted on what you find out.

    • What about seeing a Dermatologist? It may be worth a try.

    • Tammy, I have environmental toxic poisoning (Md’s call it, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) and the way tobacco is grown these days, there’s a lot of chemicals in it. Your body may be detoxing from those?  I get canker sores now and again, and I dilute a little bit of organic apple cider vinegar with water to rinse my mouth out a couple of times a day. It restores the natural Ph.  

      I hope this is helpful.
