问： 我经常长口疮。许多民间偏方据说有助于治口 疮，如在溃疡处涂盐、芦荟或苏打粉。请问哪 种方法最有效？ 答：有人认为，使用浓度高的盐分能杀灭可能导致 口腔发炎溃疡的细菌，然 而，至今无明确的医学证 据显示盐能有效治口疮。 体内缺乏维生素C、维生素B12、铁或锌等营养素，可能导致伤口不易愈合，形成口疮。芦荟含有多种营养素，被认为对口疮愈合有帮助，不过，只有有限的医学实验证明它真的有效。 长口疮与吃太多酸的食物，口腔形成酸性环境有关，将苏打粉（Baking soda） 调水，形成碱性溶液，可抵消口腔环境的 酸度，有助于舒缓疼痛，以及让溃疡较快愈合。 对于偶尔出现或情况轻微的口疮，使 用偏方无妨，但，如果持续超过两个星期 没有好转，或反复复发，就应该尽快去给 牙医检查。长期不愈的口疮，有可能与其 他较严重的疾病有关，如口腔癌。 对于口疮，医生可开有助于减轻口腔 疼痛或不适的膏药。均衡的营养也能预防长口疮。Read More
