  • Melaleuca oil works great - apply it with a cotton swab directly to the sore - be sure you use a high-grade oil - some Melaleuca oil is mixed with other ingredients and of a lower quality - the oil should have a minimum content of 35%Terpinen 4-ol and a maximum of 10% Cineole. If you are interested I will be happy to provide info on the oil that my family and I use. To avoid canker sores in the future use a tooth polish and mouthwash that contains Melaleuca oil - this helps to reduce the bacterial count in the mouth - hope you feel better soon.

  • There is a new medicine out made for cold sores and sores from braces. It is in the toothbrush/dental section. It can be used on the entire mouth or just one spot. I just read about it in Redbook mag.

  • There is a prescription you can get that coats the sore. Put it on at night and the sore heals up mostly within a couple of days. It will be worth it to end that pain

  • Are they blisters or a crater? You can buy stuff called Canka and it puts a seal over the lesion so you can eat.
