Painful abscesses in the mouth.
Eat more red and yellow vegetables, wholegrain breads and cereals, non-citrus fruit, lean meats and seafood. Repeated attacks could be a sign of being run down. Ensure you undertake moderate exercise, get plenty of fresh air and adequate sleep.
Avoid spicy foods and any food known to cause problems, and reduce stress.
Consult your healthcare professional if the ulcers don't heal.

Hi Karen, I am sorry to hear of your son’s recurrent mouth ulcers. Mouth ulcers are generally an indication of a compromised immune system .They may be caused by a specific nutrient deficiency , for example the mineral zinc. I would suggest you obtain a child-specific vitamin supplement that contains zinc, vitamin C and vitamin A. Other vitamins and nutrients that are supportive of the immune system include vitamin D, iron and herbs like echinacea and olive leaf. It is fantastic that he loves his fruit and vegetables. Limiting refined sugar is important as well, due to its detrimental effect on immune function. I would also suggest you take your son to a naturopath or integrative doctor to have a personalised consultation and any biomedical testing that may be required.Please call the Naturopathic Advisory service for any further advice or support on 1800 803 760 .Kind regards, Rebekah (a Blackmores naturopath)

Hi Wasti,I’m sorry to hear that you’ve had a mouth ulcer for 2 months. It is important to assess your stress levels and general health, and ensure that you are supporting yourself as much as possible with a good balance of rest & exercise whilst striving for an optimal diet. This would include plenty of coloured vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins such as lean meats, seafood and eggs. You could consider supplementing your diet with a multi vitamin & mineral supplement and immune-supporting nutrients such as zinc, vitamins C and E. Wasti, if you’d like to speak to a Blackmores naturopath please feel free to call us on 1800 803 760 or email email@example.com. Best wishes, Leanne (Blackmores naturopath)
