Canker Sores | How To Get Rid Of Canker Sores | Mouth Ulcer Treatment

Canker Sores or Mouth Ulcer. This video is on treatment, causes and home remedies to get rid of canker sores.

The mouth ulcer, also known as canker sores or aphthous ulcers. Can be surprisingly painful but the good news is in this video I’m going to teach you how to treat and prevent it.

Mouth ulcers are common and should clear up on their own within a week or 2. They’re rarely a sign of anything serious but may be uncomfortable to live with.

Mouth ulcers are usually red or yellow and appear inside the mouth, on the cheeks or lips. Ulcers can also appear on the tongue. You may have more than one ulcer at a time and they can change in size.

Mouth ulcers aren’t contagious and shouldn’t be confused with cold sores. Cold sores appear on the lips or around the mouth and often begin with a tingling, itching or burning sensation.

If you have several mouth ulcers please visit your doctor if you have any of the following additional symptoms, this can be a symptom of:

• Hand, foot and mouth disease, which also causes a rash on the hands and feet
• Oral lichen planus, which causes a white, lacy pattern inside the cheeks

For pictures and more information on mouth ulcers please visit:

Various factors have been suggested to precipitate recurrent aphthous ulcers including:

• Oral trauma
• Anxiety or stress
• Certain foods (including chocolate, coffee, peanuts, and gluten-containing products)
• Stopping smoking
• Hormonal changes related to the menstrual cycle
• Iron or Vitamin B12 deficiencies
• A long-term condition – such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), coeliac disease or Behçet’s disease
• Medications – including some NSAIDs, beta-blockers or nicorandil

Mouth ulcers need time to heal and there is no quick fix.

A pharmacist can recommend a treatment to speed up healing, prevent infection or reduce pain, for example:

• Steroid lozenges these can be quite effective at reducing the pain and may even help ulcers heal more quickly.

• Chlorhexidine mouthwash this isn’t quite as effective at reducing the pain however it may help mouth ulcers health more quickly and prevent them from becoming infected.

Chlorhexidine mouthwash causes brown staining on the surface of teeth if used for 4 weeks or longer. This is a type of staining that comes off after scaling and polishing by a dental professional. For more information on this mouthwash please read the information leaflet and speak to your pharmacist.

Whether you use steroid lozenges or chlorhexidine mouthwash for best results it’s always best to start in the early stages of the ulcer that way it has the best chance of preventing the ulcer from developing and speed up the healing process.

The next treatments don’t really prevent an ulcer from fully developing but are more useful for pain relief. This includes soothing protective pastes, paracetamol, ibuprofen, numbing spray or mouthwashes containing benzydamine and salt water mouthwashes.

To make a salt water mouthwash:
Add one teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and rinse gently around mouth. Remember to spit the water out, It can be done at least four times a day for four to five days.

With all medication always read the information leaflet and speak to your pharmacist to make sure you are suitable to take it.

If your mouth ulcer,
• Lasts longer than 3 weeks
• Keeps coming back
• Becomes more painful and red – this may be a sign of an infection

Although most mouth ulcers are harmless, a long-lasting mouth ulcer is sometimes a sign of mouth cancer. It’s best to get it checked.

What is a canker sore?

Canker sores are small, painful sores that appear in your mouth.

They usually clear up by themselves after a week and can be managed at home. However, sometimes you can get a canker sore that won’t heal. If you have a canker sore that won’t heal, don’t ignore it. It can be a serious condition, like: oral cancer or a life-threatening illness.

Who gets canker sores?

If you don’t fall in the following categories, you may not have a normal sore. These categories include: women get them more often than men, scientists are researching if chronic canker sores are influenced by genetics. Some people who get recurring canker sores have a family history of canker sores

Once you have a canker sore the pain typically lasts about 10 days. However, it can take another two weeks to heal. Canker sores heal on their own, unless you have a compromised immune system. Larger ulcers take longer to dissipate.

What does a canker sore look like?

They’re round or oval and appear on the inside of the lips, cheeks, and tongue. They swell and are painful; usually red, yellow, white or gray in color. See a doctor if it doesn’t clear up within 14 days.

What causes canker sores?

Most canker sore occur on accident, when biting.

Other causes include: stress, hormonal changes, quitting smoking, genetics, spicy, salty or acidic foods, and toothpaste containing sodium lauryl sulphate.

Some medical conditions can predispose you, such as: viral infections, hand, foot and mouth disease, Chron’s disease, Celiac disease, HIV or lupus.

Treatment for canker sores include:

1. Ask your pharmacist for pain medicine. 2. Change toothpaste and toothbrush. 3. Avoid spicy, acidic, hard foods, hot drinks. 5. Use antibacterial mouthwash and 6. Use over-the-counter corticosteroid lozenges to accelerate healing.

See a doctor if you have a chronic canker sore. Examples include: If it becomes acutely painful or grows larger than a dime, you get a fever, a cluster of sores in one area or spread to the lips outside the mouth.

To prevent sores, practice good hygiene, eat a diet high in B12, iron, & folate, reduce stress and buy toothpaste free of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).

silver nitrate 'burning' of a canker sore

silver nitrate 'burning' of a canker sore

Please ‘like’, ‘share’ and ‘comment’ on this video!!!

So yes…this lesion on the tonsillar pillar (not the tonsil) is on MY throat. And believe me…I am not one to whine but this hurt a LOT. Every time I swallowed it felt like a needle rubbing my throat on that side. Eating dinner almost made me break into tears.

So finally I asked around to the other doctors in my Emergency Department to see what they would suggest I do. One said to take an Aspirin an place it right against the sore until it dissolved. But how can I hold an aspirin all the way back there? Then they said gargles with salt water, sure that eases it…but it does NOT cure it.

Then one suggested burning it with a silver nitrate stick. OUCH! burning my throat on purpose? Well…the one doctor went back to his office and got me 20% lidocaine spray and a few silver nitrate sticks.

So…having these ‘tools’ at hand I recorded this video. And it has worked! TODAY…they day after the procedure I have only mild soreness at the side but I can swallow ok.

For those of you who were asking and commenting let me clear some things up:
1. No…I am not a smoker.
2. No…the white stuff on the tongue is NOT candida. But it is caused by the chronic sinus drainage I have. You can appreciate it on the video. YES I know it looks disgusting so don’t insult me I beg you.
3. Yes…there is ALSO a tonsillolith above the area of the canker sore in this video.
4. Yes…my molars are ‘yellow’…that I blame on my thirst for CocaCola and chronic staining of the enamel.

This is a much more intimate video than my other ones.
