The best way to clear up a canker sore is truly putting baking soda directly on it. I went to the doctor with a mouthful of canker sores and they didn't have a clue. The sores were so bad I couldn't even eat or talk. I decided to burn those suckers off with baking soda and within two days they were gone! Love my baking soda. It does sting, but if you keep applying until it doesn't sting anymore, it will feel better.

Hi, the sign of canker sores in the mouth is candidas overgrowth, and an acidic diet. Baking soda changes your body ph, getting rid of acidity. Stop eating processed food, white flour, sugar and crackers. Drink lemon in water every morning. The sign of something is wrong (canker sores) will heal, your body too!
Sources of cankers can also be the whoops bite you took and nicked the inside of your mouth. A lesion. I had plenty when first getting braces. Many reasons for cankers.
Our mothers/grandmothers/great grandmothers applied alum. In the cupboard all the time. Use this when making dill pickles. Every household growing up had this mineral to apply. It is still in my cupboard as a first aid fix for any mouth issue. You stand over the sink, apply a pinch to the area, salivating as if you had the most bitter dill pickle. When you can't stand it any longer, rinse with warm water. Do this a couple times a day and most likely your need is gone by day 2.
Contraindication: Any mouth sore that lasts more than a couple days, see your dentist or doctor. Many mouth cancers begin quickly as sores that don't go away. That is why during an exam by either DDS or MD, they look in your mouth and under your tongue, as the questions. Ever tried to live without your tongue? Part of your mouth/jaw? It is not a pleasant view to look at nor something you want to endure yourself. We lost a friend who quickly died due to the mouth cancer. The sore was discovered shortly and seen for it. He was a tobacco chewer after he quit smoking. Thought is was safer. Not. Young children left without a father.
Another thing you might want to try is a peroxide wash. The directions should be on the side of the bottle. This is one thing all Doctors know about. Good Luck Dar.
I have found that if you dip a Q-Tip in Pepto-Bismol and place it on the cacker sore it will feel cool, and will heal the sore quickly. It does not hurt if you swallow some of the Pepto-Bismol because it is made for an upset stomach.
