  • try washing your mouth with warm water add salt to it and rinse
    three times a day this does work

  • 2 things, 1st one go to the drug store and get Oragel for canker sores. It numbs the area in the same way the brand does with teething or get the Abreeva gel (not spelled right). Its a tad expensive, but u will notice a HUGE difference in 24 hrs!! My DH gets this cause he gets canker sores at leat 3x in the winter for some reason, not in the summer though. Good luck

  • I agree with MichiganMom.....Abreva does work wonders and it IS a bit expensive. BUT here is a link to a home remedy site. Hope ya feel better soon!

  • My husband gets canker sores all the time. Sometimes 3-4 at once. He uses two different things. One is a liquid called KANKA. Available at most drug store. He uses a Qtip to apply. It really kills the pain. The other thing he uses are these little discs called 'cankamelts" They are homeopathic/. They speed the healing by a LOT. We order those off I hope you feel better soon.

  • Salt water rinse. Theres also something you can put on it but I forget what its called. It burns for a second but makes it go away faster. I always get them from eating something acid-y
