I noticed that my 2 year old was crying and pointing to his mouth, I had no idea what was wrong until this evening when I looked in his mouth for the 4th or 5th time and noticed them in the back of his cheek. I didn't know what to do, and he couldn't eat or drink so I put some baby teething gel on a tooth brush and swiped it over the sores, he cried for a second, but it actually helped. Now for the question: How do you get rid of canker sores?
I get canker sores all the time. There is nothing you can do to get rid of them, they just get better on their own, normally after a week or so. You can give him tylenol to help with the pain. You can try to get him in to the doc on Monday to see if they will give him some numbing medication. I would avoid citrus too.

Oh gosh don't put salt on it! It probably won't help (I've tried gargling with salt water and it never does anything) and it will HURT like crazy.
