Canker sore cocktail: Rinse for 10 seconds with an equal mixture of maalox stomach medicine, liquid benadryl, (diphenhydramine) and chloroseptic sore throat medicine. Then rub orajel on the sore. Next place a small amount of salt on your finger and hold it against the sore for ten seconds. Repeat 3-4 times a day. If you are prone to canker sores, your dentist or doctor can prescribe an anti-viral.

Time: Most oral ulcers will heal in 10-14 days no matter what they were caused by. They are most painful in the first 5 days and after that they start to feel better.
