What is stomatitis?

Inflammation of the mouth surface causes ulcers. Various factors can cause this, such as vitamin deficiencies, medications, and autoimmunity (the body's immune system attacking itself). Often, no clear cause is found, and the ulcers heal on their own.

Symptoms of stomatitis

  • Spots in mouth

  • Mouth ulcer

  • Diagnosed with Crohn's disease in the past

  • Burning sensation in mouth

  • Mouth pain

  • White spots in the oral cavity

  • Bad breath

  • Oral petechiae

Questions your doctor may ask to check for stomatitis

  • Do you have mouth sores?

  • Do you have mouth sores or erosions?

  • Have you been diagnosed with Crohn's disease?

  • Do you have a burning sensation in your mouth?

  • Do you have pain inside your mouth?

Treatment for stomatitis

Treatment depends on the cause. Supplements can help with vitamin deficiencies, while immune-suppressing drugs help with autoimmune conditions. Symptom relief is also possible with numbing gels and oral painkillers.
