I used to get canker sores when I was younger, all the time. I think it is the acid in your mouth. I used to get alot of cavities and canker sores and I haven't had a cavity in years . i believe i have less acid because I still do eat too much sugar. I would go to my doctor and she would put a liquid that hurt like a mother fcker and it would turn silver. But it went away fast after that.

Ugh, my mouth is on fire. I had a bunch of work done at the dentist on Monday and a wisdom tooth pulled on Tuesday. As usual, my mouth has a brain of its own and I've got canker sores galore, especially at the places where I got shots in my mouth and in the front of my mouth from having it pried open so long. The canker sores definitely hurt ten times more than where the wisdom tooth is out, especially since my glands swell up and sometimes they make me feverish. I have the strongest OTC meds I can find and it lasts for an hour at most and only makes the sore site more enflamed and bleeding. I used to have a prescription, but it's a few years old and expired. Anyone have any creative canker sore remedies? Meanwhile, I'm going to lay in a puddle of my own drool and moan...
I used to have terrible trouble with canker sores. For me, taking Echenacia as soon as the sores popped up helped ALOT and really shortened the length of time and lessened the severity. You can get it at any grocery or drug stores with the herbs and vitamins. I hate to do that "You know what you should try..." thing, but all I can say is Echenacia was a very big help to me.

I hope you feel better soon!!!!!

Love and Peace and Lots of Sympathy.

I *think* they put silver nitrate on it to cauterize it. If I new a dentist or chemist friend, I'd be on my knees begging every few months. My pediatrician, who I still go to, once told my mom that he's noticed a correlation between stomach problems and a higher occurance of canker sores. This is definitely me. Unfortunately, it doesn't solve or help the problem. Since I've finished going through purberty, my stomach problems have lessened. I still get raging canker sores, but only one or two at a time and they're always b/c I bit my cheek or something. Before, I'd get 3-6 at a time for no apparent reason.

I had them a ton as a kid and a teen - clusters of them - oh they were horrible!!! And then they steadily got less throughout my 20's; and in the last few years I can't even recall having one.

I think that , unless there is a mouth injury, they do seem to sort of get better as years go on.

Feel better soon!

l-lysine and/or yogurt. Cut the sugar out of your diet completely until the wisdom teeth heal and the sores are gone, skip anything with tomato in it - including tomato sauce on stuff like pasta and lasagne.

lots of yogurt - plain. with no sugar kind.
