Canker Sores Home Remedies:
Treating canker sores from home is easy. While these sores do go away after a few days, a week at most, some people cannot stand the soreness in their mouth and follow some of these home remedies to speed up the healing process. You can try some of the following home remedies yourself.
- Try putting moist bags of black tea in your mouth in the area where the canker sores are. Since tea has tannin, it can naturally help relieve the soreness of these mouth ulcers.
- Aloe vera is another effective herbal home cure for canker sores you can use when you have canker sores you want to get rid of fast. Take a fresh leaf of aloe vera, open this up, and mix the sticky liquid found in it with warm water. Gargle with this mixture a few times in one day. The sores will disappear in less than a week.
- Plum juice can also help speed up the healing process of canker sores. Gargle a few times a day with a couple of tablespoons of this juice. If the sores are deeper, you may soak a piece of cotton in this juice and place this soaked cotton ball on the sore. There will be a stinging pain when you do this at first but this will dissipate.
- Baking soda is also an effective disinfectant and treatment for canker sores. Simply add a few drops of water to some baking soda to make a paste and apply this on the sore.
