Oh no poor Daisy!

Yes, gargling with salt water might be helpful.

As taking Vitamin C (1000 at a time) and Lysine. Zinc might be helpful as well. Just don't overdo the zinc. Vitamins B9 and B1 also could help.

Drink plenty of water.

Take paracetamol if you can for the pain.

Avoid spicy food for now.

If it is really painful try covering with baking soda paste if it isn't too messy for you.

And try getting plenty of sleep. When one is run down one is more prone to getting canker sores and such.

Sending you bucketloads of healing dust and (((HUGS))).

I use this and find it really helpful

170D0277-C889-4418-ADF4-A47D4D9EC5CD.jpeg

it translates as watermelon powder? Was a total skeptic when an ex colleague recommended it many years ago but it totally helps. The ulcer will go down and heal within a day or two after applying the powder.

If not then bonjela or one of those numbing gels give some temporary relief.

im really sorry, you are dealing with mouth sores

hold salt water solution in your mouth is very helpful, i suggest, multiple times a day, especially after consuming food. it's about keeping the area as clean as possible so that your body can heal.
to switch it up, you can also try listerine antiseptic mouthrinse

are you getting adequate rest?? are you dealing with low grade stress that you might not be aware of?? (i know i don't get enough quality rest and with the state of the world, dealing with low grade stress)

try to, consciously, relax (it's easier said than done BUT it's good practice to be able to condition yourself, to relax. it will serve you well)

are you taking a multi-vitamin supplement to make up for any dietary deficiencies??

if the pain is unbearable try an over the counter numbing topical numbing agent

Is it all over your mouth or one sided. I got bad shingles on the roof of my mouth just one side; twice. It hurt like you know what!

I echo the warm salt water. Also, I’ve used the patches that you put on the sore. It dissolves and sticks there protecting it. You rinse, dry the spot thoroughly then apply. Keep mouth still until it kinda dissolves, forms a patch & adheres.

This is not home remedy but this one works as I tend to get them as well. It heals as well as prevent. I use it as soon as I feel one is breaking out. Works everytime.

Some people find that going to a toothpaste without SLS helped prevent recurring mouth sores.

Gargling and rinsing with warm salt water works best for me. I generally get them from too much vitamin C.

Oh dear, this is probably far too late, but in the event this might help someone:

ASPARAGUS. It seems weird but it really helps!! Eat a bunch when you start feeling one come on and it super reduces the pain and swelling. The funny thing is that I had suffered from these for years off and on, and the dentist was no help, but I was complaining to the receptionist and she was the one who suggested it!

My Dad used to get them all the time. Then he switched over to a toothpaste without fluoride and he stopped getting them. Let me know if you are interested in the brand.
