Q5. Can anyone get a mouth ulcer?

A5. Yes. Most people will experience at least one mouth ulcer and some people are unlucky enough to suffer from repeated outbreaks of mouth ulcers.

Mouth ulcers are more common in younger people –usually those aged from 10 up to the age of 40. Their frequency disappears over time.

So, the older you get the less likely it is that you will develop mouth ulcers. Some people find that mouth ulcers run in their family.
