how to heal a canker sore on back of throat?

Tincture of time: You can not make this ulcer heal faster. They are self limiting, do not spread & will heal on their own in 7-10 days. Some home remedies can make them slightly more comfortable during the healing process.

Wrong area: Canker sore does not occur in the back of the throat. Get a doctor to see what it might be and get proper treatment.
