First, I have noticed many people confuse canker sores with cold sores. They are not the same! A dermatologist prescribed prednisone for my canker sores. It works great!! The only problem is that prednisone has many side effects I'd like to avoid. I am looking for more natural remedies, so thank you all for what you've posted here. A major contributor to my canker sores has been an allergy or sensitivity to chlorine in the water supply. Our town only chlorinates periodically. This could be a factor for some of you, especially if your water is chrlorinated. Bottled or filtered water would probably help you. I have also found stress, hormones, and some foods, especially nuts and seeds, are culprits. I just wish someone would come up with a cure and I feel for all of you who have suffered with canker sores.
