I get cranker sores at leat 5 times a year and ive always just waited them out and got through the horrible pain because i was nervouse to try home remedies. It came to a point where i just couldnt take the pain anymore. Couldnt eat, couldnt talk and could barely sleep through the night. I came to my senses and Started to put trust into these remedies thinking i might as well try something since its better than not doing anything at all. This one post i came across was very straight forward. And that was to put salt directly onto the sore for about 10 minutes. Now i knew that was going to hurt like H***! It seemed like the most crazy, intense thing to do! Because obviously its going to hurt but its only for a short time. 10-20 sec. Throughout those 10-20 sec of pain it is killing bacteria in the sore and sucking all the liquid out making it heal at that very second. I did it, and I saw a difference in my sore rite away. It works!! Yes its painful but would you rather sit around being in constant pain just letting the sore slowly heal on its own? Or take action, Go to war and put a 10-20 sec fight!! After the pain from the salt goes away. Your sore will numb and feel better. As the sore heals, putting salt on it as needed will decrease the pain. Its great and well worth it. Hope it helps!!:)

Helped a ton! Thank you!


First let me just say I love you guys! I found people who understand my pain and sympathize with me. Just wanted to calm peoples fears cause y'all had me totally freaked out to try direct salt on the sore. (I had already been swishing with high concentrated salt water which is painful) Honestly, the pain is bearable. It is not as bad as it sounds. It does hurt but it goes away fast - less than 20 secs. Mine is way back next to a wisdom tooth, I got it after dental work. Every time I move my mouth, teeth hit it so it hurts bad. We looked at the sore before the salt, my husband poured salt on it, more than needed. Then we looked at it after and you can see a visible difference. I have had this thing a week, the size of a blueberry, and don't expect it to go away overnight but I think it is going to help. Already the salt swishes have done some good. To all who share my pain - I feel ya! Try the salt, it's not as bad as it seems.


I have read a lot of these comments and wondered if anyone gets an upset stomach with the canker sores or a headache or feeling tired. Those are my symptoms and it happens every couple of months. I haven't found any remedy for this. Does anyone have other symptoms along with the sores?
