Oral ulcers are no fun

Imagine a crater-like hole on within your oral cavity. There is no mucus membrane there, and the crater surface is a sickening yellow colour, a bit like the colour of decaying pus, only darker.

Unlike the smooth unbroken surface of good mucus membrane, the inside of an ulcer appears porous and soft, probably more vulnerable than the underbelly of a rhino beetle.

Ulcers are no fun.


I am currently suffering from oral ulcers on my lip. There are two of them in close proximity of each other. One is a big bastard of 7mm diameter; the other is a smaller but by most standards still a biggish bastard of 4mm diameter. They look like a binary star system.

7mm!

If you think oral ulcers are bad...stomach ulcers. Ouch. That takes the cake.
