Ive been taking Colchicine for about 8 years now and they not only help tremendously with the whole nasty ulcer situation, but as they are originally prescribed for 'Gout', I find it helps with my joint pain. The side effects to begin with are a bit yucky, I felt nauseous for a few weeks, but once you get past that it works great.
I'm under a professor in London and she had a great tip to hello with the symptoms of genial sores: soak a cotton wool pad with mouthwash, yes, mouthwash and hold it against the affected area for five mins or so (I actually left it there and wore a pad in my underwear). No need to rinse. Mouthwash helps with inflammation and pain.
I hope this had helped & take care xx
