Getting a canker sore is definitely an experience you will never want to happen, ever again!

Canker sores are indeed pesky and getting rid of them is a bit “pesky” too. The thing with canker sores is that these sores do not heal immediately. They usually start as small lesions inside the mouth—but as days pass, these sores will grow large and these can become too painful and irritating.

Canker sore causes are indefinite—however, most of these canker sores arise from viral and bacterial infection, intake of foods like spicy and hot foods, and sometimes due to mechanical causes like accidentally biting the lips or tongue and the likes. To those using orthodontic appliances like braces and retainers, canker sores are very common! Also, people with low immunity are more prone to developing canker sores and mouth ulcers.

These medicines will provide a protective layer of film on the surface of your canker sores preventing them from being irritated with food and fluid intake.
