APTHAE (BOILS & ULCERS OF MOUTH)
It is a small, shallow sore inside the mouth or at the base of the gums.
Aphthous stomatitis is a common condition characterized by the repeated formation of benign and non-contagious mouth ulcers (aphthae) in otherwise healthy individuals.
Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is a common condition, restricted to the mouth that typically starts in childhood or adolescence as recurrent small round or ovoid ulcers with circumscribed margins, erythematous haloes, and yellow or gray floors. A positive family history of similar ulcers is common, and the natural history is typically of resolution in the third decade of life.
Not all ulcers that recur are RAS and this has led to some significant confusion in this field. Ulcers with similar clinical features but rarely resolving spontaneously with age may be associated with systemic conditions such as Behçet syndrome, auto-inflammatory syndromes, gastrointestinal disease, or immune defects such as HIV/AIDS.
Diagnosis of RAS is based on history and clinical features. If RAS fails to respond to local measures, systemic immunomodulators may be required. However, research indicates that oral vitamin B-12 may significantly reduce or eliminate RAS recurrences.
