    Yes I think so. I have Behcet's disease and canker sores are a feature and they can look like that and appear on the roof of the mouth. There is a mouthwash which works wonders which you can buy. I will check what it is called and let you know.

      Thank you for the reply Margaret! Everything that can help this go away would be great. 😃 How did you diagnose your Behcet's disease? I just checked more about it and i actually have a lot of the symptoms related with it.

      hi, sorry for all the replies. The site wasn't working for me properly on my phone!

      Ok so took a long time because symptoms are so disparate.. it's a systemic disease so affects in lots of different ways. You need someone who will tie all the symptoms together and get there. I saw an immunologist but the other way to go about it is via a rheumatologist. I saw a good one here in London because of my joint paint (I had arthralgia). She recognised I had an underlying inflammatory disorder and referred me on. Initially saw an oral immunologist because of dry mouth and ulcers. She thought I may have Sjogren's syndrome which was ruled out. Then I saw an immunologist and she was the one who diagnosed me after a year of attending clinic.

      Hints in your blood work ana esr and crp can all be indicators. They are generally raised but not always even if you have disease. So difficult. Some people wait for years for a diagnosis.

      There is also a gene test but even then not everyone tests positive HBLA something or other. Anyway, will get back shortly about the treatment for the ulcers. And though this may sound crazy....one of the best treatments is to get a steroid asthma inhaler but to not inhale just spray over the ulcers. Gets rid of them in about 24 hours. Failing that there are mouth washes for it.
