How can I relieve the pain and help speed along the healing process? Whenever even water touches them they burn like crazy.
Expert:  Dr. Katz replied 2 months ago.

The best thing to use on these ulcers is a prescription item called Kenalog in Orabase.This ointment will give you relief in a matter of seconds.It is a prescription item but any dentist or doctor can call this ointment into your pharmacy and you can pick it up there.The only other over the counter item that will give some relief is Oragel and a prescription is not required.This medication does not work as well or last as long.The Kenalog is the best.Apply it sparingly 3 to 4 times a day.These ulcers will heal themselves without treatment in 7 to 10 days.

When you say any dentist does that include you as well? About how much is the Kenalog?
Expert:  Dr. Katz replied 2 months ago.

I can prescribe to patients in Maryland but I cannot prescribe online.The Kenalog will vary in price depending on your insurance or which pharmacy that you go to.The generic can run $9.00 and the brand name could go up to $55. One tube will last for years.There is nothing else like it on the market.
