Why we get them is a mys­tery. Any­thing from zeal­ous tooth brush­ing to food sen­si­tiv­i­ties have been blamed. So where to start?

WHAT TO TAKE ‘I feel it’s an im­mu­nity, gut and stress thing, so tak­ing probiotics or aloe vera gel daily is a good start for those plagued by them,’ says Rick. ‘Pre­vi­ous re­search has re­vealed that tak­ing vitamin B12 sub­lin­gually can help pre­vent them.’ TRY

Sol­gar Methyl­cobal­amin 1,000mcg, £11.99 for 30 nuggets, Re­vi­tal.

WHAT ELSE Once ul­cers ap­pear, act fast by swish­ing a spoon­ful of co­conut oil around your mouth. Its anti-in­flam­ma­tory ac­tion re­ally helps. Or dab on a lit­tle honey – also an­tibac­te­rial! TRY Bye Mouth Ul­cer, £8.95 for 15ml, Re­vi­tal.
