Although mouth sores is not a known side effect of Nicorette gum, it is highly likely to be the cause. Or if not the cause then it may have aggravated the condition ... if you got a small one, chewing gum must have made it bad or worse. The best thing would be to stop chewing gum and let the sores/ulcers heal and then use gum again if you really want .l..but if you can give it up after that then it'll be great.

Mouth sores are well known as a side effect--it seems to get better with time--try to cut down when you have sores--I've been chewing for 6 years and can't get off--it is very expensive--I've lost several teeth, but no one knows for sure if that's related. Nicotine does constrict blood vessels and is not good for the gums or heart. There is not a lot of information out there.
