Placing a tea bag on the canker sore for five minutes helps take some of the pain away and helps neatralize the acids which cause the pain. I used plain iced tea and it took the pain level down.

Placing anything on or in the sore, including OTC oral pain ointment is not recommended as it will irritate the sore further and it will last longer. An OTC NSAID. such as Ibuprofen will work better to reduce the pain the sore causes rather than placing a tea bag on it. The pain relief will last much longer, and it will help reduce swelling.
