I'm on Day 6 of a gluten challenge. When I woke up this morning, my gums have erupted with canker sores. Why is this? Has this happened to anyone else?

I've had mouth sores since my late 20's.....never went away.

I had canker sores for years and at one point the dentist freaked and had me go to a specialist to make sure it wasn't oral cancer. They just wouldn't heal...that is, until I went gluten free after my diagnosis. Haven't had one since and it's been 6 years.

My son has been gluten free for 6 months but today he showed me a large painful canker sore he is dealing with. I don't know...I thought they were gluten related but he is very very careful...didn't think he had gotten any gluten. ? What the heck do you do about them?

Put drops of peroxide on it several times a day. Also it helps if he can hold his lip open to get air on it to dry it out.

I swear for most of my life (especially in the last 10 years or so) I have constantly had at least one canker sore in my mouth. Usually more than one. On avg each one takes several weeks to heal.
