Managing Mouth Ulcers.

Mouth ulcers are painful and inconveniencing lesions in the mouth. They are fairly common with evidence suggesting 75% of the population will suffer from mouth ulcers at some stage in their life.
Mouth ulcers are small cuts or lesions. The top layer of the skin inside the mouth is removed to reveal the sensitive nerve endings. The exposure of the nerves is what makes mouth ulcers so painful. Mouth ulcers are made worse by food and bacteria which can infect the sore and increase the size and duration of the mouth ulcer. Aloclair stops this from happening by forming a strong and protective barrier over the ulcer.
Aloclair has a unique non stinging, soothing action which relieves the pain of mouth ulcers within minutes and lasts for up to 6 hours.
Mouth ulcers occur when a trauma removes the top layer of skin. This exposes the nerve endings causing pain and discomfort.
Aloclair works by forming an invisible barrier over the ulcer which covers up and protects the exposed nerve endings. (The barrier can’t be felt once it is applied.)
Aloclair is available in three forms – an easy to use mouthwash, a handy spray and a NEW gel – all easy and quick to apply. There is no need to use fingers or applicators, which means no mess and no germs!

Suitable for use in adults, children and babies. Aloclair is safe if swallowed and has a very mild liquorice flavour. Aloclair will not have any effect on other medication you may be taking.
Could your toothpaste be causing mouth ulcers?
If you are a sufferer of mouth ulcers you’ll know how painful and inconveniencing they are. But what if your toothpaste that you use twice a day, everyday was causing these ulcers?
The majority of toothpastes contain an ingredient called sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), in fact a large proportion of all cosmetic and personal care products contain this ingredient. SLS is an inexpensive, abrasive detergent used to enhance the foaming properties of products which allows for better distribution whilst washing and brushing teeth.
There are mixed thoughts on the effects of SLS. The Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CTFA) state that belief in the carcinogenic properties of SLS is urban legend yet the Environmental Working Group have found SLS and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulphate) to contain 1-4 dioxane which the US Environmental Protection Agency consider to be a probable carcinogen! As they say in America… “go figure”
It is well known that SLS removes moisture from the top layers of skin drying it out and causing flare ups of dermatitis, acne, eczema, psoriasis etc in people prone to these conditions. But what is its effect in the continually ‘wet’ area of the mouth and what does it mean for mouth ulcer sufferers? A Norwegian study looked at the effect of Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and recurrent aphthous ulcers and has published evidence to support a link between the use of toothpaste with SLS and the incidence of mouth ulcers.
The study took recurrent aphthous ulcer sufferers and monitored the number of ulcers experienced over a 3 month period when using a toothpaste containing SLS. The patients had a 1 week washout period before changing to a toothpaste without SLS and monitoring the number of ulcers for a further 3 months.
The results showed almost 3 times the number of ulcers occurred when using a toothpaste containing sodium lauryl sulphate. But why does this happen? The study suggests that the SLS in toothpaste has a destructive effect on the lining of the mouth. It removes the surface cells by destroying the protein in the cell membrane and exposes the more sensitive underlying layer. The incidence of ulcers then increases as the inside of the mouth becomes more easily damaged.
So if you are a sufferer of regular mouth ulcers it could be due to Sodium Lauryl Sulphate in your toothpaste. Aloclair will help heal and relieve the pain of any ulcers you do get.

April 16th blog post discussed the potential therapeutic power of vitamin B12 in combating recurrent mouth ulcers. The data from the American study does indicate that a 1,000 mcg daily dose of B12 helps prevent and speeds the recovery. It’s worth a thought combining Aloclair therapy if and when they occur with a daily dose of B12. However, feel free to post your comments and suggestions.
