Can cetylpyridinium chloride be used with lidocaine?
Cetylpyridinium chloride can be used at the same time as lidocaine, and it’s often sold in remedies which contain both ingredients.
If you’re planning on using both of these medications at the same time, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before use so you can make sure that you’re using the right amounts of each medication and that the combination is suitable for you.
Does cetylpyridinium chloride have side effects?
Like all medications, cetylpyridinium chloride can have side effects, although not everyone will experience them.
These include feeling or being sick.
If you experience any side effects while using cetylpyridinium, stop use and speak to your doctor or pharmacist right away.
Will cetylpyridinium chloride stain my teeth?
There is a small chance that cetylpyridinium chloride can stain your teeth when used as a mouthwash.
If you’re worried about your teeth staining after using cetylpyridinium, you should speak to your doctor, dentist, or pharmacist for advice.
What are mouth ulcers (canker sores)?
Mouth ulcers, which are also known as canker sores, are pleasant little sores that appear in your mouth and cause all kinds of irritation until they’re gone.
They’re usually harmless and aren’t contagious, but they can be seriously irritating and painful while you wait for them to heal.
Mouth ulcers appear on the insides of your mouth or lips, on your gums, or on your tongue and they look like little round white, yellow, or grey sores.
You’ll usually remember that your mouth ulcer is there when you try to eat, drink, talk, or brush your teeth and annoy that little sore, causing a pain that makes you want to give up on using your mouth altogether until it’s healed.
What is the cause of a mouth ulcer?
A mouth ulcer is usually nothing to worry about and is typically caused by accidentally biting the inside of your cheek.
It may be caused by other reasons like a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection, or even some medical conditions.
Your mouth ulcer should go away on its own in about 2 weeks, but if there is no improvement after this time, speak to your doctor as an ulcer that doesn’t heal may be a sign of mouth cancer.
