Dietary contraindications for mouth ulcers

Mouth ulcers are a common condition and such patients should avoid a daily diet of irritating foods such as fennel, garlic, leeks and onions. During the onset of the disease, it is advisable to avoid overly hot dietary choices such as hot pots and barbecues to avoid irritating the mouth and aggravating the discomfort. Care should also be taken to reduce the consumption of raw or spiky foods such as chips, bones, shellfish and fish to avoid causing new breakages or aggravating existing wounds.
It is important to note that diet is only one part of the treatment and the severity of the disease varies from patient to patient, so it is advisable to consult a medical professional if you are unwell. Your doctor will be able to advise you on the appropriate treatment plan for your particular case and give you sound dietary advice.
