canker sores

I get the biggest canker sores of anyone I have ever met. They often times make it uncomfortable for me to even talk, putting me in a bad mood for the week that the exist. I get them quite often, about every 2-3 weeks I will get a very large one, and I am just wondering if anyone knows of anything to do to reduce the size or help to prevent them? thanks!

Re: canker sores

I have a friend who gets them and she uses a good brand of olive leaf tablets. You might look it up on the internet. I use it for an antioxident along with zinc in the winter for prevention of colds, coughs ect. Stuff is really great in my book.

Re: canker sores

I find that swishing with hydrogen peroxide before brushing your teeth in the morning and evening really helps.

Re: canker sores

Try taking L-lsyne tablets. You can get them at Target or Walmart. As soon as you feel a cancer sore starting, start taking the L-lysene and it really helps get rid of them. Don't know why, just know that it works. You find it with the OTC herbs and minerals.

Re: canker sores

To prevent canker sores, use a toothpaste that doesn't have the ingredient SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) - this is in most toothpastes. Since I've started only using an SLS free toothpaste, I hardly ever get cancer sores anymore and I use to get them all the time and they were huge and lasted a good week or more.
