Unfortunately, many foods will play havoc with a mouth ulcer and so the recommended diet is a rather plain and bland one.

Although we can give some advice, it is always the best policy to check with your doctor, dentist or nutritionist. They should be able to give you a detailed diet plan of which foods will be fine and could help reduce the swelling of an ulcer and the offending foods to avoid. Even if you can't make it to the doctors or dentist in person, it is well worth making a phone call to the surgery. They will most likely ring you back when they have a free minute to talk things through with you. If you do not know your doctor or dentist's number then if you head to google.com and type in your surgery's name and location, their homepage should come up. Then head to the 'contact us' part and there should be a phone number.

You should find foods such as low-fiber bread, grains and starches and food that is soft cooked are the most forgiving to eat while suffering from ulcers. Things like pasta, rice and potatoes are all soft enough not to irritate the ulcer. The main foods to avoid when you have mouth ulcers are very spicy things like curries or dishes that contain a lot of chilli. This will only irritate the ulcer and could be very sore and swollen for a few more days because of eating such things.

What you can do is eat food that have a ph of 7 and up, which is most vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, brussel sprouts, cauliflower and some others. There are also many other things to eat too but vegetables are just more likely to help neutralize your ulcer. Try to not eat spicy and sour things because they can increase the pain.

Stay away from high acidic foods such as: Rice, mushrooms, apple, beef, actually all animals are acidic meat, eat only in moderation because all food have acid on it, do not take too much over the counter medicine such as advil, tylenol, etc.., milk, food that has vinegar, peanuts, all soda, alcoholic beverages, cheese, carbonated water, soy sauce and eggs.

Eat only alkaline foods such as green leafy vegetables, fish like salmon, spinach, avocado, trout fish, flax oil, olive, cucumber, tuna, sea bash, fatty fish such as cat fish or milk fish, mussell.

Our body produces acid that we need but some people produces way too much that their body can use. (thers produces too much sugar that causes them to become diabetic).

For you to eliminate too much acid, you have to exercise and eat the right food that does not have too much acid in it. When you sweat from exercising (ask you doctor first what kind of exercise can your body do right now according to your situation), your acid contents in your body decreases and in the process, your body healing power or immune system will function as how it should be and eventually rig of your ulcer but you have to be religeous and very decipline in your regimen. Do not eat too much carbohydrates and too much sugary food. You can have a bite so as not to induce pain in your hurting intestine but not to the point that you fill up your stomach as in a meal. Be careful.

You have to play it by how YOU react.  For me, tomatoes and milk/dairy have proven to be big no-nos. Chocolate has been a lesser irritant.  Eggs, certain hamburgers, bread, peanut butter have been no problem.  Generally, everyone says to stay away from caffeine, alcohol, NSAIDs like Advil and Aleve (stick to Tylenol), and most people are better off avoiding acidic stuff like tomatoes, peppers, and citrus. Be careful with chocolate as it can stir up GERD.  After that, I really think a lot of it comes down to trial and error for you.  Of course, before you start getting your ulcer under control, EVERYTHING will likely bother your stomach, but in general I've found that I do better with bland stuff that doesn't contain dairy.

Well in the case of ulcer you have to be more careful in food that you are using in daily life because if you are suffering from this disease than you have to use light foods and be careful that don't eat oily things, it really increase the pain and also the bacteria's of ulcer disease.

I am new to this I`ve not only got an ulcer I have IBS aswell so the foods that I can eat are not good for my IBS.  Ice cream will only settle your tummy for awhile but then the pains come back again.
