Whats the name for these and how to cure it? Bumps in mouth.

They are just white sores in my mouth, they look kind of like zits but they cannot be popped. Just white bubbles.

I used to have this problem maybe when i was 16, i would have one and i would chew gum and then the next thing i know, a bunch of them start showing up all over the inside of my mouth.

Then here and there occasionally i get one somewhere.

Lately i've been having another attack, but its usually just 3-4 bumps at a time. I believe they are called "cancre sores" or something like that. I bite my nails and my parents believe that it is because of that. In all honesty, i stopped biting my nails for a bit and just recently i started again, and thats the same time the sores popped back up. So i assume its associated with the bacteria in my nails. I need to stop.

But what is the real term for this and how do i heal them quickly?

Canker Sores,, Heres some causes Bacterial infections


Hormonal disorders


Stress


Trauma


Heredity


Food allergies or sensitivities (acidic foods such as pineapple)


Deficiencies of iron, folic acid, or vitamin B12

The best home treatment is to mix Maloxx with the same amount of Benadrly both can be bought at any drug store. Rinse your mouth with this solution every few hours swish it around good for at least a minute longer is better. Do Not swallow it spit it out..It soothes and helps heal them up quicker. Sometimes if they are bad and alot at one time you should see your doc..Do you drink alot of acid drinks. Orange ,tomatoe. apple or pineapple juices? Or eat alot of fruit often that causes them..

Nah i do bite my nails alot, so im sure thats the bacteria part. It happens whenever i bite my nails for a good while. Then i might chew gum and it spreads.

i used to get canker sores all the time when i was younger. the quickest and simplest way to get rid of them is by swishing salt water in your mouth a few times a day like glamour girl said. I saw a noticeable disappearance of the sores in less than a day when doing this.
