See doctor: He may try you on a topical antibiotic or cortisone paste but there is no magic bullet since we still do not know what is causing them.

Sores: Depends on the cause as to proper treatment. Rather than looking for a magic bullet on the drug store shelves, seek informed diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan from your Dentist.
