I have suffered from canker sores for as long as I can remember and I normally endured the pain for 2 weeks but recently tried a new experiment and has helped me ever since. The second I bite the inside of my cheek or tongue I will brush my teeth to prevent further germs from affecting the area and the following days I will place salt directly on the sore or red area if it swells twice a day for one to two minutes a day. It not only numbs the pain but reduces the canker sore itself. Also remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day and keep your mouth clean by using mouth wash to prevent germs further infecting the canker sore. Yes, it may sting at the time but it's better than not doing anything about it at all.
