Canker sores are a common oral health issue. Also known as aphthous ulcers, cancer sores are very painful. They can appear anywhere inside the oral cavity – on the inside of your lips and cheeks, the base of your gums, on or under your tongue. They are different from fever blisters, which typically appear on the outside of your lips or the corners of your mouth.
Interestingly, canker sores take a couple of days before they reach their peak in terms of pain and irritability. In other words, they don’t start hurting immediately upon occurrence, which gives you some time to deal with it before it gets really bad.
There’s a simple trick you can do to get rid of this common, painful nuisance. Best of all, it doesn’t ask for any medication.
Start by mixing a teaspoon of salt in a glass of water. Swish around your mouth and gargle for a couple of minutes then spit out.
The next thing you do is warm up some water, preferably before going to bed, then squeeze some lemon juice and drink it. Don’t add any sugar in it. That’s it.
You’ll be amazed to see that your cancer sore will disappear completely by the next morning.
