Feb. 3, 2008 at 8:02 AM it takes about 10-14 days for a canker sore to run its course....if you get them often try taking the supplement Lysine.....it is suppossed to help prevent them.

Feb. 3, 2008 at 8:06 AM What are you rinsing with? My pharmacist told me the old salt and water trick doesn't always work. He said that the salt can irritate it more. He said to use an anti-septic mouthwash instead.

Feb. 3, 2008 at 8:11 AM Is scope actually "anti-septic"? Does it say it on the bottle? I know Listerine is....
