Mouth Cankers Remedies

Mouth cankers are common during fasting as the body is detoxifying through the skin, tongue, and lungs.This waste is a feeding ground for bacteria and viruses resulting in painful mouth cankers, sores on the gums inner lining of the cheeks.

Canker sores are painful, small ulcers in the mouth or on the inner lips caused by an assortment of viruses and bacteria.

Mouth Canker Scientific Name

The condition is called aphthous stomatitis. Normally, canker sores clear up in a week, but they often recur, sometimes in the form of multiple sores. Salt and acid increase the pain when eating.

Mouth Canker Home Remedy 1- Sugar.

In the Philippines the normal process is rubbing sugar on the canker.

Mouth Canker Home Remedy 2 – Salt.

Salt is effective but very painful. It burns the bacteria and deadens the never but the pain level is extreme and it need to be done several time a day. The natural remedy is not for the weak at hear.

Mouth Canker Home Remedy 3 – Hydrogen peroxide & sodium bicarbonate rinse.

Rinse your mouth four times a day with a combination of 2 oz hydrogen peroxide, 2 oz water, and 1 tsp each of salt and baking soda. Do not swallow. Or use only the baking soda. (Sodium bicarbonate powder)

Mouth Canker Home Remedy 4 – Milk of magnesia rinse.

Rinse your mouth with milk of magnesia to coat sores.

Mouth Canker Home Remedy 5 – Vitamin C.

When you feel a canker sore starting, just get a 1/2 gal. of orange juice & drink it up in 2 or 3 days it goes away!Lack of vitamin C causes them. You can also take Vitamin C pills.

Mouth Canker Home Remedy 6 – Tannin.

Cover the ulcer with a wet tea bag; the tannin will help dry up the sore.

Mouth Canker Home Remedy 7 – Antacids

Antacids can soothe canker sores by reducing the acidity in your mouth that can irritate them.

Mouth Canker Home Remedy 8 – Kaopectate, Milk of Magnesia, Benylin or Benadryl.

Combine equal parts of the liquid form of Kaopectate or Milk of Magnesia (both antacids) with Benylin or Benadryl (both mild anesthetics). Apply the mixture to the canker sore with a cotton swab. You’ll cut down on painful acidity in your mouth and numb the sore, too

Medications with xylocaine numb the area temporarily. Ointments like Orabase and benzocaine coat the sore, protecting it from being irritated by food and from becoming infected. Some doctors prescribe mouthwashes that contain tetracycline, an antibiotic, for canker sores. Dab the sore with the medicated end of a styptic pencil (available in drugstores), just as you would to stem bleeding from a shaving nick. This will numb inflamed nerve endings. Use a new pencil to avoid infecting the sore with bacteria. This is an old remedy, but it still works.

    I have a very nasty one on the roof of my mouth after a week of waterfasting. It’s located so that talking, swallowing, well just about every activity hurts. Will my digestion complain if I suck on some throat lozenges with extra vitamin c in them?

      Hi Orion
      I have the solution to cankers. Dab toothpaste on it with a swab every hour and try to do it at night.
      Let me know how that works.
      The lozenges will have sugar and make it worse.

        Even the Strepsil ones? Will any toothpaste work, or will I need to avoid certain ones?

        PS I have a very well articulated, spell-checked progress report pending. Pretty please approve it?

          I used colgate and that worked. Strepsil may work. I could not find the active ingredient on a quick search. There is a sugarless, but artificial sweetners may be worse then the sugar.
          Let us know. Hey I really appreciate the spelling checked report. Some take a lot of fixing and lack capital letters. I guess people do not realize we get 1/2 million visitors a year.
