Yes, cankers are painful and all too common. If you want to know how to get rid of these mouth sores as fast as possible, you’ve come to the right place. I’m going to summarize the tips on this page to help you: https://www.tipsbulletin.com/how-to-get-rid-of-a-canker-sore-wonderful-home-remedies/
First, if you’re getting a lot of mouth ulcers, visit a doctor. They could be a sign that there’s something wrong with your health, like a vitamin deficiency or worse.
Next, it’s time to maintain good oral hygiene to help keep canker sores at bay. Brush your teeth thoroughly and use mouthwash. Stay away from dental products that contain SLS, or sodium lauryl sulfate. It’s a known skin irritant.
Also, to avoid getting new ulcers and to help heal the current ones, get plenty of rest. This allows your body to heal and keeps stress away.
At this point, that’s the end of my tips for preventing canker sores. Now it’s time to make the ones you have to feel better right away. If you don’t have Anbesol or other oral gel on hand, try these ideas.
Grab a popsicle and suck on it to numb the pain. But avoid spicy and acidic foods that can irritate a mouth ulcer and make it feel worse. Stick to bland foods for a few days instead.
Now the best natural remedy for a canker is probably aloe vera. You can apply the gel directly to the sore, or make a mouthwash and swish it in your mouth a few times a day. If you have raw honey, put some on the ulcer right before bed so it can work uninterrupted.
There are many other remedies for canker sores in the article I listed. And please do not confuse canker sores with a cold sore. Two totally different things. Be sure to try as many as you can so you’ll know what works best for you. I hope you feel better soon.
