Mouth ulcers update

Thanks very much again to everyone who made suggestions last week. In the end I didn't try salt or Bonjela, both of which have failed me before, but I have been going for a combination of mint tea last thing at night, vitamin pills and also the stuff you dab on with a brush, sold here as Pyralvex, which is basically rhubarb extract and aspirin. The healing time has been about the same as usual but they have hurt much less, which is a relief. So I know what to do next time. (And will keep on popping vitamin pills to try and make sure there isn't a next time!)
