So, just a couple days ago I had a horrible sore. I couldn't eat, and it really hurt to talk. Eventually, I decided to get rid of this lil menace, and actually eat something without wanting to bite my tongue off. I got out my handy-dandy hydrogen peroxide and swished it around in my mouth for a little, then spat it out in the sink. I continued this until it stopped foaming, then washed my mouth out with water. It seriously doesn't hurt at all. I've done this a few times over the years, and it helps every time.

Another thing to note, is that some toothpastes have hydrogen peroxide in them. I think it's the whitening toothpastes.

Basically, all hydrogen peroxide does is get rid of bacteria on wounds. When it touches bacteria, it foams up. So, when it stops foaming, you've gotten rid of the bad stuff. Just do this until the canker goes away, and you should be fine! :) Hope it helps!

actually the hydrogen peroxide is reacting with the oxygen in your blood (tiny pools of blood are in the wound and in your saliva. Thats why it foams...it has nothing to do with the bacteria and washing your mouth with HO is kind of dangerous.
