    if you get them often, you can ask your doctor for pills that prevent them....i take the pills & i havent gotten one since september. But if you dont wanna do that then applying a topical oral gel or paste (i recommend the paste) will give you some temporary relief. try Orabase paste from Colgate. good luck with that! i know what youre going through!

    i get them all the time. when it is as bad as you mentioned i usually put a medication called kanka on it. it numbs the canker sore so you can eat a little better. as for listerine i have tried that and it doesn't seem to work on me. i have also tried the salt water gargle and it might work but hurts like you wouldn't believe. i hope you get better soon.

    Sounds infected try rinsing your mouth with Listerine or a mixture of Peroxide and water. Directions should be on the bottle of Peroxide.
