I just got my first canker sore... not very fun. I asked someone and they said to use oregel... i did and it numbed it,I tried it and eventually my sore wasn't at the extreme pain point. It stings for like 5 secs and then, tada... It doesnt hurt. Hope i could help, THX :)
If the canker sores are consistent they could be caused by a yeast problem. Taking bifidus/acidophilus capsules help immensely.
This works: Open the Lysine capsule and rub on the sore as many times as possible. The go diminish within 48 hours. It stings but it will reduce in size.
I HAVE A BIG CANKER SORE RITE UNDER MY LIP IT HURTS SO BAD HAD IT FOR ABOUT 3 DAYS NOW CANT SLEEP OR EAT ANYTHING ONE SOLUTION I FOUND WAS
-GET 2 ASPIRIN PILL CRUCH THEM UP PUT ABOUT 5 DROPS OF WATER MIX IT PUT IT DIRECTLY IN THE SORE IT WOULD NOT HURT TRY I DID IT AND THE PAIN WENT AWAY IN LESS THEN 15 MINUTES I CANT EVEN FEEL SEE SORE THIS THING WORKS
This has worked every time! all you need a is a lemon or lime and sugar. you grab a pan and turn on the stove and put sugar and the lemon or lime on the pan. Wait until the sugar and lime or lemon crystalizes. Turn off the stove and use a q-tip or a napkin and put some of the sugar/lemon on it and then just remove the canker sore/infection off
note :make sure its a little warm and not to hot
sugar= helps heal faster
lemon/lime=cleans the canker sore
heat= stops the infection
and it tastes a lot better that just salt lol
First let me just say I love you guys! I found people who understand my pain and sympathize with me. Just wanted to calm peoples fears cause y'all had me totally freaked out to try direct salt on the sore. (I had already been swishing with high concentrated salt water which is painful) Honestly, the pain is bearable. It is not as bad as it sounds. It does hurt but it goes away fast - less than 20 secs. Mine is way back next to a wisdom tooth, I got it after dental work. Every time I move my mouth, teeth hit it so it hurts bad. We looked at the sore before the salt, my husband poured salt on it, more than needed. Then we looked at it after and you can see a visible difference. I have had this thing a week, the size of a blueberry, and don't expect it to go away overnight but I think it is going to help. Already the salt swishes have done some good. To all who share my pain - I feel ya! Try the salt, it's not as bad as it seems.
Spray Vicks chloraseptic (It says for sore throats on it) onto the sore. It numbs it immediately with absolutely no pain, and a bit of relief. Apply when needed.
just apply salt on the sore and it will work just fine
Canker sores were plaguing my daughter for at least two years, and we tried everything. She is an adult, and they were getting so painful and frequent that she began crying, at times, in anticipation of pain to come.
I finally looked for a homeopathic remedy, and now I wish I would have looked two years ago. Boiron company makes a homeopathic remedy called Borax. My daughter a very few doses (5 tiny pellets each dose) and that was done several months ago. She has NOT HAD A CANKER SORE SINCE. The borax in the homeopathic remedy must be different from the borax used for cleaning, but I am not a chemist and don't know for certain, but this borax helped her tremendously.
I myself have had great results using homeopathic remedies for bumps and bruises (arnica montana) and for flu symptoms (oscillococcinum).
If anybody else tries this remedy I would love to get feedback on how it worked for you.
put turmeric on the canker sore, either with your finger or with a Q-tip. it'll sting for maybe 10 seconds, but about a minute later you won't feel it at all.
