4 Home Remedies for Canker Sore Pain


OK so I have dealt with these my whole life and have done more research on this than any human being should. I will keep this brief.

Sodium laurel sulfate. This is in most toothpastes and mint flavored products. It's an industrial foaming agent. THIS IS WHAT CAUSES CANKER SORES.

I'm not going to endorse any specific SLS-FREE toothpaste but just go on amazon and loom one up.

Basically I've been canker sore free for almost a year now. I am so thankful I found this out. It changed my life.


mix up a litle Italian seasoning spice, honey and a clove. Then chew. Helped me out.


This is the first comment that I have read that sounded like mine and my sons canker sores. They are not the type that can be 'cured' with the typical remedies of peroxide, baking soda, salt water, etc. Had them since I was 5 years old and got a very high fever. However, my son who is now 18 started getting them around the same age and gets them much worse since hitting puberty. I read a comment where someone had thyroid issues. I was on synthroid at one point and then had 1/2 my thyroid removed. I still get them randomly but not nearly as badly as I used to or like my son does now. We take a medication, big blue pills, for herpes. We saw a naturopath and then an infectious disease specialist who diagnosed it as a form of herpes simplex, in my son's case it acts more like cold sores on the tongue. At one point turning into black spots (very scary) but sure enough...eventually went away. The VERY painful stage of big 'crater' like sores is the worst I think, for him. On the tongue interferes with normal functions of life and talk about MOODY! No one takes it seriously because there are so many worse illnesses out there that are chronic. However, I challenge someone to register pain stimulus in someone who has them...I just know it would rival some of the more painful chronic conditions out there.


There are two new products I found that are good for tooth aches or canker sore pain.
Orajel mouth rinse for cold sores, and Ulcer ease made by med derm. I got the second one at the clinic pharmacy.

I use the orajel one first and hold it in my mouth until the pain subsides a little bit, then use the Ulcer ease in a small dose as close to the pain as possible swish a little bit and hold it again there until the pain is almost gone. Then it usually takes a few minutes for me to fall asleep again.

Since I suffer from bad teeth and canker sores due to many medications, I usually need 2-3 root canals a year...I suppose until there is none left! So, I use this a lot.
