  • Hi Carol :)

    Thanks for the cake it's really nice mmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Sorry to hear you have mouth problems at the moment woth ulcers and bleeding gums there are several threads/posts on here about it I'll see if I can find them for you

    I also know theres one on WhyQuit about bleeding gums but not sure where I use Anbesol for ulcers and find it goos you can get it from any supermarket or chemist over the counter

    If you're really worried about it go to your dentist to set your mind at rest

    Love

  • Thanks Marg I appreciate that...........it's really sore when I am eating......prob not a bad thing cos it's made me stop!!!!

    Didn't know if it was some sort of infection or if it is quite common in us smoking quitters. As I have a dentist phobia I am hoping it's the stopping smoking that's causing it :)

  • Hi Carol :D

    Heres the one from Whyquit you'll have to scroll down quite a long way it's headed Bad breath, nasty tastes and bleeding gums OK theres a lot of other useful stuff as well suddenly remembered I had it in my favourites

    whyquit.com/whyquit/A_Sympt... hope one of these will help you

  • Hi carol, I used corsodil (sp) not the daily one. It sorted out mouth ulcers and helped with the bleeding gums.

    I know it feels horride but it does improve and I was recommended corsodil by a dentist years ago when I had problems and i always turn to it when ulcers pop up.

    Hope it improves :)

  • Thanks for that it really helped. I've got corsydl so i'll use that and hopefully it will help.

    Well it's off to bed for me.........

    night night girls and boys sweet dreams and dont let the nicotine demons bite :p

  • bleeding gums

    Hi Carol,

    I have had bleeeding gums since stopping smoking. I went to docs and dentist and was told that it was very common when quitting ciggies. Nothing to worry about. It's to do with blood vessels regrowing in the mouth and they bleed initially, or summit like that. My dentist has suggested a deep clean which I have planned for 3 weeks time. I believe this is not a very nice thing to have done but it helps protect teeth and gums a bit better and gets rid of all that staining done to the teeth over the years. So I'd definitely suggest seeing the dentist and having that deep clean.

    Hi Caz,

    Not sure if this has been said (lot of posts for you on this one!!) But i know that champix can sometimes cause gingivitis which i think is a gum related problem!!! Just to let you know, Trip to the ole dentist should help you out.

    Good luck,

  • Hi Caz,

    I am on day 11 but have quit many times. I was a heavy smoker, smoking cigarettes 20 - 40 a day for 25 years. Yesterday my mouth was full of ulcers (today also)... but it didnt let it bother me, as i know that its part of withdrawal from the nicotine.

    It is painful and eating is difficult. But it will pass. I think its something to do with acid in your mouth and to avoid acidic foods. I think - well if it can do this to my mouth from quitting, think of the damage i was doing smoking! x

  • Hi Niksgee :)

    Well done on day 11 that's great but sorry to hear your have mouth ulcers
