The purpose of this study was to evaluate a gel containing allantoin, aloe vera, and silicon dioxide in the treatment and prevention of ulcers of the mouth. For 3-4 months, each patient used a daily dairy to document changes in the number and duration of ulcers, interval between ulcers, ulcer size, and ulcer pain. In one study, use of the gel resulted in reductions of mouth ulcers and a statistically significant decrease in the length of time the ulcers were present.
