I read 17 pages of home cures for these bastard sores and the only thing i had on hand was salt or baking soda AND WATER. Wasn't going to like the pain, as i was already raw from lancing the bubbles and scraping away the uneven skin. But i plowed forward and dabbed on the salt-water paste to my lip sores. As warned, it stung like chemical burn, and heated crushed glass being rubbed into the wounds. Then, I got an idea! Calamine lotion! Had an opened bottle in the frig. The coldness was immediate relief, and it just got better as the layers of soothing pink adhered. I've been dealing with the discomfort for three weeks and haven't had thirty minutes of relief. As long as I keep layering the Calimine on I'm pain free! Later, I'll do another cleansing with the salt paste, rinse with witchhazel, and apply more calimine which is drying to the little boils in the sores. At least now I'm pain free enogh to wash my hair and go out to a store for Maalanta, or Kaopectate, to coat it. Over the counter creams and gel pastes don't work, unless you can apply them every two minutes twenty-for seven, for pain. They do nothing for swelling and 'weeping' and bubbling.

Good way I been healing mine is getting a qtip dipping it in tequila or mezcal and rubbing the crap out of it till it bleeds it hurts but it goes away faster sounds painful but the sore hurt more

I.think you are talking about cold sores ? Canker sores appear only inside the mouth- and are not bubbles / don't bubble up. Cold sores appear outside the mouth and are a viral infection - they are more like bubbles / fever blisters. I'm assuming you are referring to cold sores because I can't imagine putting Calamine lotion inside the mouth.
