I have multiple canker sores on the inside of my cheek, around my gums and on my tongue. They're driving me crazy! I can hardly talk or eat they hurt so bad. I did some research that said it can take weeks to heal. I'm sure they were caused by stress. Do you have any methods that work for you? It's not really convenient to go to the doctor right now but I'm about ready to.

Swirling warm salty water in your mouth, also try yogurt. I'm not sure if you are like me, but I get canker sores from an upset tummy. I asked my step mom who is a nurse and she said that canker sores can be cause from stomach acid and to try something like Mylanta to counter act the acid. I've also put baking soda on mine it helped dry it up. Hope it gets better I feel your pain trust me I've had my share of them and they hurt so bad. GL & GB
