Re: Canker Sores
ok man, its time you learned the best kept secret in canker sores. i suffered with the $*#@ things almost constantly, one would go away, only to have another show up. i talked to dentists who were no help. i finally did a little research and found a product that rocks. no canker sores since. i dont know what is causing your problem, but mine was caused by sodium laurl sulfate.(SLS) this is the foaming agent in shampoo, toothpaste, soap, dish detergent etc,etc.. anyway this is an acidic ingrediant and it was damaging the insides of my mouth, causing canker sores. the answer to all my problems was a simple change in toothpaste. i use biotene brand. i buy it at my local target store, but most pharmacys have it behind the counter. no RX is needed and it isnt too expensive. about 5.00 a tube, but if it makes my sores go away, and stay gone, its worth much more. i can understand what you are going through, so try this remedy. go through about 2 or 3 tubes (NO REGULAR TOOTHPASTE AT ALL) this will allow the inside tissue of the mouth to rebuild itself without the SLS stopping it. i can almost assure you this will work, it deffinatly doesnt hurt. i hope this helps. lane
