I was diagnosed with Behcet's disease in 2010 when I was 14 years old. It began with severe mouth ulcers and all the other symptoms shortly followed. However, this site says that there is a regular occurrence in mouth ulcers for Behcet's sufferers but I have not had a flare up for 4 years now. No more ulcers since that dreaded time in 2010. Is this also common? Fingers crossed it will carry on this way!
I went almost years without a break from oral lesions.. At that point I was diagnosed and the doctors started to try different medicines... I was put on steroids and it stopped the oral lesions almost completely... Could medicine be the reason for you not having them? Also, stress is a huge trigger, maybe you have been less stressed?
HI!!! I know that ulcers on the walls of our mouth and on our tongues are very common like stated above, however, i suffer from them quite frequently, causing me alot of discomfort. So I would like to know if there is anything that causes me to have such frequent ulcers. thanks

I have recurrent ulcers on the side of my tongue mainly in one side, the ulcers are always there but I get periods when they are not as sore then they seem to flare up and be really painful for months. it has been like this for over a year. GP treated it was oral thrush treatment but it hasnt made a difference. what is it? why does it occur and how do I get rid of it?
I am 17 years old, I've only had sex with 1 person, my boyfriend, and deffinatly know he doesn't have any STI's but just recently I noticed these ulcers down below like mouth ulcers and am very worried whether it is herpes or not. I've got an appointment next Wednesday but worried that by then it will all be gone and then they'll say to wait and come again next time. They are very painful and hurts when i walk, get up and sit down. any help? or advice?
I'm am also 17, have only slept with one boy (who I have now been with for two years) and was unlucky enough to have the same problem. Mine did turn out to be herpes, and I was told that it was likely my boyfriend had got it from previous sexual relationships in the past, but hadn't shown any symptoms. It is very painful, and not a nice experience especially when you don't deserve such rubbish luck, but the symptoms quickly go once you take the course of pills. As sorry as I am for you, it makes me feel a lot better to know I'm not alone with this.. hope it's the same for you.
Within a month I have had two episodes of ulcers on my vagina (not many about 3), I went to my doctor about them and she said it looks like gential herpes. I have had two different swabs done and both came back negative for herpes. Im worried to what it could be, does anyone have any ideas?
hey im 14 and recently i have found some really iregular spots on the inside of my vagina flap.. they are really sore and they kinda look like ulcers ?:S and hurt when i use the toilet and wipe afterwards. I am too embarrased to tell my mum but its really worrying me.. ive nve been sexually active so it cant be an STI?? some one PLEASE PLEASE help me im really worried?
It could be cysts, particularly common when dealing with alot of stress. You haven't been sexually active so it rules out any chance of an STI, so don't worry about telling your mum :) Arrange to see your GP, as cysts can re-occur frequently and are uncomfortable and painful, some may be removed with minor surgery. If you think it may be related to stress, GP can also put you in touch with someone to talk to. If you can't get a GP appointment or don't feel like you can talk to your mum, talk to your school nurse :)
I have about 3 ulcers on my stomach. I've been in extreme pain for so long. I throw up blood quite a lot and I've had blood in my stools too. I've been to the hospital but they only gave me medicine that doesn't help and took some tests. I'm somewhat anemic. When I go to the hospital/doctor/er they say they can't do anything about my bleeding ulcers or pain. What doni do?
Look up the SCD (specific carbohydrate diet) lots of networks and things on the Internet and also a book by Ellain Gottshall called breaking the vicious cycle. If you are not severe enough for surgery this could help you before that happens. I've had the surgery and I'm going to try the diet further down the line. Good luck
