How do you get rid of canker sores? 3
Category: Medicine - General
I've been dealing with this problem for a couple of days and it is horrible! They hurt a lot and I feel very uncomfortable at the time I'm eating or having something to drink. It even happens when I talk! This is a horrible sensation and I can't take them anymore.
Is there any fast method or recipe to make them disappear?
Treatment usually isn't necessary for minor canker sores, which tend to clear on their own in a week or two. But large, persistent or unusually painful sores often need medical care. A number of treatment options exist.
Mouth rinses: if you have several canker sores, your doctor may prescribe a mouth rinse containing the steroid dexamethasone.
Topical products: benzocaine, fluocinonide, hydrogen peroxide.
Oral medications: not intended specifically for canker sore treatment, such as the intestinal ulcer treatment sucralfate or silver nitrate.
Nutritional health supplements: if you consume low amounts of folates, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12, or zinc.
