Vitamin B12 is an important component for the healthy functioning of the body. It is essential for making red blood cells, and signs of deficiency can develop very slowly, so it can be difficult to diagnose the condition.
And people with undiagnosed symptoms should consider that they may suffer from vitamin B12 deficiency, according to (Russia Today).
While the symptoms are unlikely to be caused by the condition, there are still many people who are deficient in vitamin B12.
And a rapid blood test can reveal whether you should add more of the vitamin to your diet. And you should consider talking to a doctor about a B12 deficiency if you have unexplained canker sores in the mouth.
Canker sores are a type of sore that forms on the soft tissues inside the mouth, or at the base of the gums.
You’re more likely to develop these painful sores if you have vitamin B12 deficiency, according to the Ada Medical website.
These sores are not contagious, but they may make eating or speaking more difficult. They appear similar to a round or oval bubble with a white or yellow center and a red rim.
The site added that “although vitamin B12 is available in a balanced diet, deficiency is not rare.”
Symptoms of B12 deficiency usually develop gradually and can be extensive. They may include general symptoms, such as fatigue and lethargy, as well as symptoms specific to deficiency, such as yellowing of the skin and sore tongue.
More specific symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency include: pale yellow skin color, red painful tongue and mouth sores.
But just because you have a mouth ulcer, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a vitamin B12 deficiency.

However, following good hygiene habits and reducing your stress levels may protect you from mouth sores.
