Hello, I have been suffering from recurrent mouth ulcers for about eight months. The doctors think it's a herpes simplex virus. Each outbreak lasts for about two weeks, with two or three ulcers, some sorer than others depending on where they appear. I take Ibuprofen at night to stop the pain, and recently have been prescribed Acyclovir to take when I feel a new ulcer coming on...often it seems to be too late. It seems my immune system isn't working well: I take vitamin C, magnesium, and sometimes echinacea for a few weeks. I find the whole thing rather depressing. Grateful for all tips. Episodes seem to be triggered by stress and fatigue
