107 Home Remedies for Mouth Ulcers


SALT and Tumeric
Mix the two, rub it on the ulcer (u might shed a tear) but blv me its better than suffering for days with an ulcer.


apply a mixture of salt and turmeric on ulcer


Ok I have tried almost every remedy and an over the counter gel as my ulcer was excruciatingly painful and getting in the way of doing things !!!


you need to get rid of the white film on the ulcer as that's what is stopping it to heal...

Some people say use a tooth brush to scrub it but the thought of that seemed dreadful so I just used a cotton tip and scrubbed againest it till it started to bleed.. TRUST ME it sounds so bad but it's actually more bearable than the sharp pains that occur from just having the ulcer there in the first place

Then you need to sterilise the area with salt or (baking soda is gentler) ... Either apply it directly or just as a mouth wash

Then put a soothing dressing on it such as Vaseline or coconut oil

You've now opened the wound and cleaned it and the body will start to heal the area... This is the ONLY way to actually get rid of an ulcer not just numb it or relieve the pain

Voila- you will notice it feel better straight away I promise !!!!

This worked so well I felt the need to share it so please be brave try it and feel better ! :)



Really works! It soothes it and relives the pain.. Coconut oil is naturally anti bacterial and moisturising
Just dab a generous amount on it and it will feel better right away...

Take salt.Keep it in your mouth.Night sleep.Ulcer gone in 1day


I used to have mouth ulcers, especially during the exam. I think that it is caused by stress. The horrible thing is sometimes there are many sores in my mouth at time. I have tried a lot of method, including apply mouth lotion,mirabilitum praeparatumchin (traditional chinese medicine),mouth wash and consumed vitamin B and C. Based on my personal experience, eat vitamin together with frequently mouth wash is better way for recovery.


Take a tablespoon of peroxide and swish it in your mouth, don't swallow. Repeat this for a day or two and it will be gone.


I am 12yrs old and frequently get mouth ulceration. The trick that has been passed down from all my grandads through to my dad is to put Vegemite directing on top of the sore. It is extremely painful but the good old Aussie tricks work.
Another thing I do is rinse some water with dissolved salt in a glass of water and spit...
I do notice that occasionally it helps when I use a different toothpaste. Anyway, I am open to suggestions since mouth ulcers drive me bananas!!


Find some bi-carbonate soda, NOT BAKING POWDER, and stick a dry finger into the tub. Then, gently rub the bicarb-capped fingertip so the baking soda is directly applied on the top of the ulcer. Don't worry about the area being completely dry when applying, but try not to have it dripping with saliva. It burns a little and tastes terrible and the texture is gritty, but if you leave it on for around 3-5 minutes, you can't even feel it in your mouth. I love it.

I've had mouth ulcers for as long as l can remember-- some 30-40years ( Im 68) . My mother swore by Tincture of Benzoin and it works great !! Dip a q-tip into the solution and dab it onto the ulcer just as soon as you become aware of it's presence. Do this as many times a day as practical. If caught early they usually heal in 2-4 days and alleviate the pain. If you have an advanced ulcer it will definitely sting and be painful when first applied ,but the pain quickly subsides and you'll feel a soothing relief. It's an over the counter remedy that is available in any drugstore ,but nowadays you'll have to ask the pharmacist for a bottle. Most pharmacies will stock 1-2 bottles. Or you can order on-line from the mfgrs like Humco & Swan. The original formula was a very dark tincture but many of the newer formulations are clear. It sticks like 'glue' to anything (which is why it works so well in the mouth) so be careful not to spill in the sink etc ... You' ll have to scrub like crazy to get the compond removed !! If you Google , it will be called Benzoin Compond or Tincture of Benzoin. Since it's an Oral Mucosal Suppressant it's very effective in the treatment of any Canker sore / blister and will dry them up seemingly overnight. As soon as you feel even the slightest tingle on the lip , indicating the onset of a canker, immediately apply the Tincture to the area. You'll be very glad you did !
