The discomfort cause by mouth ulcers is excruciating. You cannot taste the food without soreness. Your mouth don’t experience flavor in food you eat but pain. There are many home remedies of mouth ulcers that we have somehow forgotten and which are fairly effective and bring respite in short period. But ahead of explaining the home remedies to you, let me first talk about the causes of mouth ulcer, which is very essential in preventing the ulcers to resurface time and again.

Main Causes of Mouth Ulcers
Mouth Ulcers are not infectious and cannot be spread from person to person. Minor Ulcers can be caused by incidentally biting the inside of cheek while eating or talking, it can also be caused by using sharp objects like pencil, broken teeth edges, while brushing etc, but the ulcers that reoccurs over and over again may be the hint that something is not well within us. These troublesome Mouth Ulcers can be caused by any of the following stated reasons.
1)      Hormonal Changes: Hormonal Changes is one of the basic reasons, particularly in women during their monthly period.
2)      Nutritional Deficiencies: Deficiencies such as iron, vitamins, particularly B12 and C.
3)      Stress and Anxiety: Many people experience mouth ulcers during the time when they feel over stressed out or anxious over any important issue.
4)      Allergic Food: Eating, drinking or smoking certain food like chocolate, coffee, wheat or barley flour (Coeliac disease due to Gluten), nuts (peanuts, almonds etc), cigarettes (especially when leaving it) and all shorts of chewing tobacco.
5)      Allergic reactions due to Medication: Some anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen, aspirin, drugs used in heart problems like Nicorandil etc can cause reactions that are reported to be the cause of mouth ulcers.
