Dr. Dmitry Dmitrovich, a specialist in oral medicine and dentistry, points out that in addition to these causes, iron deficiency anemia can also cause stomatitis.
According to him, stomatitis can lead to high body temperature and poisoning of the body if left untreated.
If an infection occurs in the oral cavity, the doctor advises not to eat citrus fruits and sour fruits, as they increase irritation. Not all folk remedies used, such as iodine and honey, help treat stomatitis. Also, in no case is it recommended to comb ulcers and abscesses.
And he adds: But chamomile can be used to relieve inflammation of the mucous membrane in the oral cavity and pain, which suggests that the treatment of acute stomatitis lasts 3-10 days.
