I am only 11 1/2 and I have canker sores for as long as I can remember I even got one on the left Side of my tongue which I accidently bit. And I have a home remedy. If you have anbesol or a numbing medication for canker sores use that it will numb it so you can put salt on it so it won't sting. Pinch the salt on canker sore(s) for 20-30 seconds
I get canker sores a lot, so I have first-hand experience with this. One of the things you can do to numb the pain for a while, is but ice directly on your sore. It hurts a bit when the ice is on it, but afterwards the pain is gone. This only lasts a while though.
Another way is to put a spoonful of salt in a room temperature glass of water and swish. It'll be gone in no time! Hope I helped everybody who is experiencing this pain..
Use equal parts of Benadryl, Kopectate and Maalox mix together and swish in mouth several times a day. Will coat the sores and make them feel much better.
Canker sores are mainly composed of citric acids. Try putting salt on your [pointer]finger and pinching the area for about 30 seconds, and the pain will numb since the salt will absorb the acid. It stings like H*ll, but you'll get used to it. Try to keep the salt on that area for a while to help it heal, but you don't need to pinch it. Do this for a few days to help it heal. I haven't done it consecutive days before, so results may vary in healing.
I have a canker sore on my cheek where I bit it while I slept the only thing that helps is to swish dill pickle juice.. it stings for a sec but the pain is gone.. I have done this every time I get one and it works wonders for me ... hope this helps
Tonight I got really sick of these two nasteh buggers so I rinsed my mouth with three things.
A mix of :
Lots of salt
And hydro peroxide
This might be the worse pain you will feel in your whole life but , my canker sores are gone within 3 minutes of swishing . Amazing !
My remedy for canker sores is to eat dill pickles. That's right, dill pickles. When you feel one forming, start eating dill pickles. You don't have to eat many, just when you think about it. I'm guessing it's the vinegar in them, but it helps tremedously! And I eat yogurt, too!
Alum Salt. It's an old school method that works immediately and only requires one application to have relief within a day. Put a little chuck of this stuff (found in some spice areas) directly on the Canker Sore till it's numb...ps it's gonna hurt but it's very worth it.
PUT SOME salt and vinegar IN A CUP AND THEN TAKE A DRINK DO NOT SWALLOW SWILL YOUR MOUTH WITH THE MIX DO THIS WHEN YOU GET UP IN MORING AND BE FOR BED AND CANKER SORE WILL GO IT WILL STING FOR A BIT. WARING DO NOT SWALLOW MIX
I have had canker sores ever since I can remember.. I usually get them from drinking orange juice and eating strawberries.. Anyways my grandmother who had them all through her life gave me milk of magnesia tablets, the chewable ones... Let that sit on your canker sore until it dissolves.. TRUST ME! It hurts the second you stick the pill on there... it will be gone the NEXT DAY!!!! Hope it works :)
