How to treat stomatitis?

Stomatitis is the inflammation of the lining of the mucus membrane in the mouth. It is a painful condition that usually results from infection and may involve the cheeks, lips, tongue, throat, gums and roof or floor of the mouth. Stomatitis may even result in the formation of ulcers in the gums and mouth, particularly between the teeth. Stomatitis can affect both adults and children and is caused by maintaining poor oral hygiene, ill fitted dentures, nutritional deficiencies, indigestion and organic diseases such as leukemia. Infection caused by candida albicans or thrush and Vincent’s angina can also cause stomatitis.

Symptoms of stomatitis:
If you happen to be suffering from stomatitis, you might find it very difficult to take your meals due to pain and may even go without food at times. Liquid food or semi solid soft foods can be taken as they cause less pain. You might even experience difficulty in talking and may find that your tongue is coated and your mouth may have turned bright red accompanied by excessive salivation. Other symptoms of stomatitis include slight fever, constipation, foul breath, vomiting after meals and loss of appetite.

Treatment of stomatitis:
The primary cause of stomatitis is increased levels of toxicity in the body. Therefore, it is essential for you to take adequate measures to decrease the overall toxicity of the body and enhance digestion. Fresh juicy fruits such as grapes, pears, pineapples, peaches, apples and papayas are highly beneficial. Meats, tea, coffee, white flour, white sugar, pickles, condiments, sodas and processed foods should be avoided.

Natural remedies: Lemon is highly beneficial for treating stomatitis. Take 1 tbsp lemon juice everyday before meals to enhance digestion and help treat this condition effectively. You can also add 1 tbsp of lemon juice to a glass of warm water and use it as gargle several times during the day to treat stomatitis. Another effective natural cure is the use of salt water and baking soda along with water to gargle several times during the day. This should be done at regular interval of every 2-3 hours to keep the mouth as clean as possible.
