How To Treat Canker Sores
Definitely not a cure, but one of the best ways to treat canker sores is to regularly rinse your mouth with a 50/50 solution of hydrogen peroxide and water. You may want to take a pain reliever until the canker sore heals. It is recommended to use ibuprofen to relieve the pain, but if that bothers your stomach you can use acetaminophen. Food products and additives are suspected of making canker sores worse. Try to avoid any foods that you find may trigger an outbreak. Other homemade treatments for canker sores include; gargling with salt water, gargling with mouth wash, gargling with a mouthwash consisting of one aspirin and some water, applying tea tree oil to the sore, and finally, applying Milk of Magnesia directly to the canker sore. Most people learn how to treat their canker sores by trial and error. It may take some experimenting, but you'll come to find what canker sore treatment works best for you.
