Canker sore

I have one on the inside of my lip since Friday and it just keeps getting more and more painful. It's about the size of a pea and it keeps growing. I'm so out of ideas. Any suggestions on how to make this thing heal faster before I go crazy?

  • put some baking soda on a wet q-tip and put it on there. it tastes nasty, but just keep that on there as long as you can and usually it heals it up quick

  • put a lot of salt on it! just regular table salt. it will sting a lot at first but if you keep putting more and more on it, it will eventualy numb it! and i heard it will help it heal faster. atleast that worked for me. I hope this helped!

  • Dip a Qtip in hydrogen peroxide and dab it on the canker sore. It will stink but the canker sore will be gone within a couple of days. Works everytime I have a canker sore and I get them a lot.
