I'm 14 and I've dealed with these nasty sores a lot as a little kid. Well, in May of 2010, I got my first bad canker sore in a really long time. Ever since then, I've gotton a lot and they hurt! 2 days ago, I got about 4 canker sores on my tounge. It got to the point where I tould barely talk and eat, and I always had to stick my tounge out to avoid pain. I tried SO many remedies found on here. Salt (numbed it but it hurt a lot and made my stomach hurt), salt water (did nothing), baking soda (did nothing either), a lot of pain relievers and canker sore meds (did nothing again), ice (it's hard to keep it on the sore because it's so cold), and sugar (numbed it, but only for a minute). I finally tried the MOUTH WASH one, and it worked! My canker sore doesn't even hurt anymore! Just swish some in your mouth (especially on the sore) for about 30 seconds and repeat once or twice. Finally something is helping!

I have found that it can be any kind of mouthwash...as long as it is RED in color!
