  • This can be a sign of an auto immune disorder. Talk it over with your doc

  • My Son also suffers from canker sores. Some at home remedies I've tried: a wet tea bag on the canker sore will help dry them out. Also yogurt will help to prevent them from forming.

  • I believe it radiates up from the stomach - so you are eating or drinking something that is irritating your stomach, esophagal lining and ultimately your get canker sores.
