Home Remedies for Canker Sores
There are so many cures for canker sores that people swear work for them, but they don’t always work for everyone. Try the below home remedies at your own risk (salt to a canker sore – ouch!). These are home remedies from around the net and I can’t vouch for them all.
- Get a chewable milk of magnesia tablet and put it directly on your canker sore. It will be painful initially but it will start to ease once the tablet has dissolved. The next day the canker sore will be pretty much gone!
- Melaleuca oil can help ease the pain and hasten the healing of a canker sore. Add a few drops into a cup of cold or warm water and rinse your mouth out with it every hour or there about.
- An unusual but popular home remedy it to cut a thin slice of potato and directly apply it to the canker sore. It will be painful to begin with but it will numb the pain after 10 seconds or so. Apply for longer if needed!
- A tablet called Calriton Quick Dissolve is supposed to work wonders – but don’t exceed the recommended dosage (no more than two a day!). These might be able stop the canker sore from getting worse and might help it heal quicker!
