Mouth ulcers????
My teenage son is plagued with mouth ulcers - is there something lacking in his diet? I have put him on those multi vitamins for teens.

Dear Spider
Mouth ulcers can be due to vitamin deficiencies, but there are also other causes like infections, so I trust that you have taken him for a medical checkup? If not, then please do so as he may have one of a variety of conditions. In the meanwhile, the multivits for teens is a good idea.
