Get any regular salt, like iodized table salt, and mix it with water. Rinse your mouth a few times. It will sooth the pain on the gums. Do this everytime it starts to hurt or feel funky. Just rinse often and the stress spot that caused the canker sore will subside.

Maybe I'm a glutton for pain, but I will dry my canker sore with a paper towel and hold salt or alum on the sore as long as I can stand it. It seems to dry it out and it starts healing immediately!

the sore is gone in a day or so .and the pain is greatly reduced instantly.

I was getting a canker sore on the side of my tongue of all places. It had only been a couple of days (that's enough) when I came on here searching for remedies...I didn't have a lot of money so tried this salt and very warm water concoction and swished it around for a few seconds a couple times last night. Today it's gone...Thank you! Also I don't get them often at all. Maybe once or twice a year, but I have been eating a great deal of salt lately; fast food, chips, etc...So that probably contributed to it some...Thanks again!


Salt causes canker sores so how can it heal them?
