Home Remedies For Canker Sores

These are located inside the mouth around gums, inside of cheeks and lips and around the tongue area. It’s unknown what causes them exactly but it’s suspected that stress and diet can play a big factor. These aren’t contagious like cold sores [1], but they can be quite painful and can last 2 to 3 weeks.

HoneyHere’s my collection of home remedies to treat them, some can sting quite a bit on the initial application. I used to get these regularly when I was younger (it seemed to be 2 or 3 times a year), but I haven’t had one for several years now. It’s likely because I grew out of them rather than doing anything to make myself immune to them (score 1 for aging!).

Note: If it persists and won’t heal or is accompanied by a fever, make sure to see your doctor.
