Supportive care: Canker sores are either related to a healing spot of damaged tissue (eg, tooth bite) or a viral reactivation. Supportive care is all that is required, such as oral salt water rinses. It may take 2 weeks to heal. If concern for herpetic viral reactivation, then a prescription of antiviral medication, such as valcyclovir, may help.
