Diagnosis of mouth ulcers

Diagnosis of mouth ulcer
There is currently no test available to identify whether an oral ulcer is classified as “aphthae” or not. People suffering from recurring aphthous stomatitis with scarring or persisting mouth ulcers should consult a doctor to rule out other pathologies such as:

  • Behçet's syndrome
  • Crohn's disease
  • Cancer ulcerations
  • Sweet's syndrome
  • Gluten allergies

People with a mouth ulcer persisting over a month should consult a doctor.
