Put salt on it. It may burn a little, but that means its working. Do it right before you go to bed and it should be gone by morning.

I should've read all 3 pages of posts before I commented...this is the 3rd comment I'm making on using salt (or alum). I totally agree! Hold it on the sore as long as possible and it shrinks almost immediately! Can't get any better or cheaper than salt!

I had 5 canker sores when i first used this and it was EXTREMELY painful but after it was done the pain had gone down by about 50%. after i did it though, i used listerine for about 30-40 seconds. it gives it a better taste after having salt in your math.

I have a nasty lip sore complication which had become surrounded by enlarging canker sores inside my lip, then two days later two more cankers popped up furhtur down inside my lip. A lip sore is very difficult to make go away because its constantly being disturbed. I'd read a lot about the curing properties of HONEY, So I poured 1/2 tsp of pure natural honey all over the sore, tiwce this morning. Stung for two minutes, then, NO PAIN. In THREE HOURS my CANKERS were no longer white and beginning to heal!!!!TRY HONEY!! TRY HONEY FOR CANKER SORES!!!!!!!!!

I read that if you put baking soda mixed with water on your canker sore, it would be gone the next day. I'm not sure if this salt remedy (I used salt mixed with water) or baking soda remedy will work, since I took both at around 6:00 PM. Right now it is 7:35 PM. Well I will just have to wait a little.

for me. salt just makes the pain worse and the sore bigger.

People, beware. Putting salt on a wound causes EXTREME pain. In some horror movies they show some killer putting salt on another person's wounds to torture them, so that tells you that salt is NOT a good thing for any wound. I was getting desperate and finally broke down and put salt on my canker sore, and it was the most painful thing I've ever experienced in my whole life. I let the salt sit as long as I could but then literally went into a panic trying to get it off of my canker sore. The pain was so intense that my eyes began watering and I immediately started to feel weak and nauseous. My canker sore THROBBED for hours afterwards and it is no better a few days later, so it didn't even work for me. Those who say it 'stings a little' must have the tiniest lamest canker sores ever for salt to not even cause them pain. If you've got a REAL canker sore, DONT DARE put salt on it
