Lemon Juice for Canker Sores

I have canker sores often and have used may different home remedies, over the counter medication without great success. A friend told me to rinse the area with lemon juice. It stings at first, but after several times of rinsing throughout the day, the sting lessens, and the canker sore healed much faster.


I always have lemons on hand, so do not have to run to the store when a canker sore starts to rear it's ugly head. Try this it really does work.

Ouch! Since a canker sore is acidic, I would think that would hurt. Here is another that might work differently. Take a Qtip, wet with water and put into baking soda, then sit onto canker sore, the soda counteracts the acidity in the sore. Yes, it does sting a bit at first, but I guarantee the sore will be much better!

Yes that actually works my mom told me but I use lime, and sprinkle some salt for and extra effect until it's starts bleeding, after that I rinse my with with hot salt water that I mixed
