  • I had them when I had strep throat. My doctor said it was probably viral...he gave me something called miracle mouth wash. They were nearly gone after 24 hours. Miracle mouthwash is just liquid benadryl, but spit it out after rinsing...like 4 times a day.

  • Rinse your mouth with a mixture of equal parts liquid Benadryl and Kaopectate. It sounds totally disgusting, but I promise that it's not that bad!! The Benadryl numbs the ulcers and the Kaopectate coats them. I used to work in a doctor's office and the doctor I worked for recommended this. It works!!

  • Oh, let me add, you can use generic Benadryl and Kaopectate and it works just as well!!
