I used to get horribly painful sores on my hard palate-like I had 3rd degree burns. I started to noticed I would get mouth ulcers immediately after brushing my teeth with toothpaste containing carrageenan. I cut out all toothpaste with that ingredient and any other seaweed based ingredient(sodium alginate, algin) I have not had them since. Doctors recommend eliminating carrageenan from your diet if you have Crohn's-we never think to check our toothpaste!

Hello, curious if it could be an imbalance in gut flora? Is anyone on probiotics and still suffering with this issue? Also has anyone tried healing/soothing with organic coconut oil (swishing/pulling)? Just a thought and could be worth looking into or trying. Ask your Dr. if this might help?

Hope everyone gets some relief soon.

Hi If*, I take probiotics daily(PB8 in the am and Garden of Life in the pm) I also oil pull with unrefined sesame seed oil every morning. I still got the mouth ulcer when I brushed with toothpaste containing carrageenan. I really think preventative measures such as probiotics, etc, help bring up our threshold to a higher level to help reduce flare ups but ultimately food and stress have such a higher impact on bringing about flare ups that ultimately these are the variable we must control.
