Aphthous ulcers also are called canker sores and are very common oral medical issue that at some patients is very painful. They can appear anywhere inside the oral cavity, including the inside of the lips and cheeks, the base of the gums, on or under the tongue.
First of all, it is important to make the difference between canker sores and fever blisters as they are different health issues. Namely, fever blisters mostly appear on the outside of the lips or the corners of the mouth.
According to medical experts, the canker sores take a few days before they reach their peak in terms of pain and irritability. To be more precise, they don’t start hurting immediately after their occurrence, and that actually gives you some time to deal with it before the condition gets really bad.
There is one very simple and yet effectiveyou trick in order to get rid of this common and very painful nuisance. The best part is that you don’t need any medication.
Start with mixing 1 teaspoon salt in a glass of water. Swish around your mouth and then gargle for a couple of minutes and spit out.
After that, you need to warm up some water, then squeeze some lemon juice and drink it, preferably before you go to bed. You should not add sugar in it.
We guarantee that you will be amazed by the results: until the next morning the canker sore will disappear completely.
