This first appear aphthas with muddy contents, which after some time turn into bright red circular sores up to 10 mm in diameter, located on the gums, tongue, cheeks and lips mucous. Often these sores are merged together to form large ulcerated surface. Sores in the mouth are not prone to scarring and can pass on their own.

On the mucous membranes of the genitals is observed surface, sharply painful aphthous ulcers or deep process. First, on the mucosa appear single or multiple bubbles or blisters (bubbles with pus), which are then converted into aphthae.

In severe cases, the process can go on the optic nerve to the development of blindness or a significant decrease in visual acuity. It may also develop secondary glaucoma Glaucoma - a perspective possible blindness  Glaucoma - a perspective possible blindness
   (increased intraocular pressure).

The disease can be complicated by the defeat of the joints, usually the knee or ankle. Complications also arise in connection with the distribution at large vein vasculitis - retinal upper and lower vena cava. This leads to increased thrombosis and complications in the internal organs.

Treatment is carried out with the use of antihistamines, calcium supplements, antibiotics (the process is almost always associated infection) and glucocorticoid hormones.

Outwardly mouth washed with antiseptic solution (potassium permanganate, boric acid, extracts of calendula, St. John's wort). These same solutions and do sit-baths. They are used as an ointment to glucocorticoid hormones.
