Try mixing a bit of salt with very warm water and slosh it around the part of your mouth in the spot were it is twice a day. This doesn't get rid of it right away, but it helps a little. Mostly, just be patient and try to bear the pain. Avoid fried or sugary foods.

Canker sores usually last for a week to 10 days. They are annoying and generally go away on their own. They can be caused by stress, or even certain foods, such as citrus fruits.

If a sore is unusually painfull or large, a dentist may prescribe an antimicrobial mouth rinse, a corticosteroid ointment, or a prescription or nonprescription solution to reduce the pain and irritation.

No. I have canker sores and have never kowingly given some one canker sores. Canker sores are not caused by the same thing that causes cold sores and as far as I know they are not contagious. But to be on the safe side avoid kissing this person until their canker sores go away.

No. Genital herpes does not cause you to have canker sores. Genital herpes and canker sores are completely different and not related to each other.

No, when canker sores are going away the pain lessens.

The cause of canker sores is unknown but they occur in the mouth and can be quite painful. Pictures of canker sores can be found on any medical website, health or medical magazines and books.

People often confuse canker sores with cold sores. Cold sores are aka oral herpes, usually on your lip. Canker sores are inside the mouth and just cause pain to the person who has it.

User Avatar

Nope. Cold sores are though.

Yes they can. Bananas and pineapples are well known to cause canker sores in some people.
