    How to Treat Canker Sores At Home

    A tiny, shallow sore on the interior of the mouth or at the gum line. A canker sore, unlike a cold sore, does not appear on the lips and is not communicable.

    The major symptom is a painful sore in the mouth that makes eating and speaking difficult.
    Canker sores usually heal in one to two weeks on their own. Mouth rinses, pastes, and medication may be used if necessary.

    Treatment

    Minor canker sores normally don’t require treatment because they heal on their own in a week or two. Large, chronic, or unusually painful sores, on the other hand, often necessitate medical attention. There are a variety of therapy methods available.

    Mouth rinses

    Consider the following suggestions to help you relieve discomfort and recuperate faster: Rinse your mouth with water. Use a baking soda rinse (1 teaspoon baking soda in 1/2 cup warm water) or saltwater. Several times a day, dab a small amount of milk of magnesia on your canker sore.

    Topical products

    If applied to individual sores as soon as they emerge, over-the-counter and prescription medications (pastes, creams, gels, or liquids) may help reduce discomfort and hasten healing. Active substances can be found in several items, such as:

    • Peroxide (H2O2) (Orajel Antiseptic Mouth Sore Rinse, Peroxyl)

    There are a variety of alternative topical canker sore treatments available, including ones with no active ingredients. Inquire with your doctor or dentist about which option is best for you.

    Nutritional supplements

    If you’re deficient in vital nutrients like folate (folic acid), vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12, or zinc, your doctor may recommend a nutritional supplement.
