View Full Version : 5 Canker Sores

July 8th, 2016, 02:29 PM
I've always been prone to canker sores in my mouth. I have 5 right now, and it's incredibly annoying. I've tried using salt water, covering them with salt, and certain gels and patches, which do help with numbing them temporarily. Are there other ways to make them go away faster?

Maybe your Dr can give you something ? Or even speaking to someone at a pharmacy so the pharmacist can help

I only got them whenever my braces would irritate my mouth, so I used orthodontic wax to cover them and allow them to heal properly. They're annoying and painful as fuck.

I've got a canker sore right now that rubs whenever I talk, so I feel your pain. I typically just wait them out, but when they get bad I have two options.

Aloe Vera: Little green cactus-like plant that is famous for its healing properties. I actually have a plant on my back porch, but you can just buy some Aloe Vera juice at the store. Rub the juice on and let it sit. The Aloe Vera is painless and can accelerate the healing of the canker sore.

Hydrogen Peroxide: You buy it in the store in brown containers, famous for its blood bubbling. Swish the hydrogen peroxide around your mouth, focusing on the sores. The stuff tastes terrible but helps to heal and numb the sores.

I think you should see your doctor if you get those many and so often. Not to alarm you but canker sores are in the same family as herpes so I really think that you should see your doctor for advice.

It sounds like they're not normal so maybe you should go to a doctor? Unless it is braces causing them in which case use the wax:)

I usually get canker sores every other day. My mom tells me to use a Chinese product that my family has consumed for years.

It's called "SANJIN Watermelon Frost Compound". It's a bitter watermelon powder that you apply to the canker sore, leave it on, and the powder will absorb into the sore (all you have to do is wait). Applying this powder will sting a bit, but in a satisfying way; that also means the product is working. It takes me within 48 hours for them to disappear which is efficient considering standard treatment would last a week or more. The powder reduces the time and severity of the canker sore dramatically.

You can find it on Amazon or Ebay. I highly recommend it. It's non toxic, so if you accidentally swallow a bit, that's alright.


Pay no mind to the 'breath freshener' caption.

Yeah, that many, I'd see your Dr and see what he/she says about it. It's probably nothing, but.....

My mom always told me that canker sores are a sign that you're not getting enough vitamins. I'm not sure if there's any science to back that up, I'm not sure that doctors are even 100% sure what causes canker sores, but whenever I get one I try to consumer more vitamin C. It seems to help but I'm not sure if it's just a psychological thing or what. You can get vitamin C capsules at any pharmacy/most convenience stores/supermarkets. There's also a product called EmergenC, which is a flavored vitamin C powder that you mix in with water. I usually take 1000 mg, and not more than once a day because too much might cause diarrhea. Any vitamin C your body doesn't need it will just dispose of through urine, so even though 1,000 mg is more than the daily requirement or suggestion, it is not harmful. I would consult a doctor if the problem doesn't go away or gets worse.

I get them occasionally. I find that brushing my teeth frequently, then rinsing with listerine after (actually hold it in your mouth over the sore for about 45-60 seconds if you can) helps numb them, and heal them. Other mouthwashes work too but i've found that Listerine is most effective.

Canker sores are because of top much sugar in a person's diet at least with me. I chew up an antacid and push it on the canker sore and it dissolves with no pain.
