Home Remedy For Canker Sore

Bookmark Home Remedy Cafe!
Canker sores (aphthous stomatitis) also known as mouth ulcers, are shallow, painful sores on the inside of the lips, tongue, the inside of the cheeks, or on the gums. Canker sores are most common among teenagers and people in their twenties. They begin as small, reddish swellings. Then they burst, and the ruptured sores are covered with a white or yellow membrane. The edges of the sores are still red, and look like a painful red halo.

It is suspected that having too much acidity in your stomach, stress, and food allergies are major causes of canker sores. You may want to have allergy tests done or test yourself by eliminating the suspected foods from your diet for a few weeks, then reintroduce them one at a time and see which one triggers a canker.

Canker sores differ from cold sores in that they occur in the soft tissues of your mouth and aren't contagious. Conversely, cold sores rarely develop in the soft tissues of your mouth and are extremely contagious because they're caused by the herpes virus. Without a canker sore remedy, canker sores can take from 1-3 weeks to heal.


Some Effective home Remedies are:

Ingredients: Baking soda
For canker sore , mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1/2 cup of warm water. Use this mixture as a mouthwash 3-6 times a day (it may sting), especially after meals and before going to bed. note: baking soda contains high levels of sodium, rinse your mouth thoroughly if sodium intake is a concern.
Ingredients: Apple Cider Vinegar
Mix 1/2 cup of warm water, Swish around in mouth for 30-60 seconds 2 times a day and your canker sore will go away quickly!
Ingredients: Onion

Ingredients: Salt water
Mix 2 tablespoon of salt in 1 glass of warm water. Use this as a mouth rinse 3-4 times a day. The salt will draw fluid from the canker helping it to heal more quickly.
