Sore in throat: Canker sores are rarely found in the back of the throat. That being said, If it is a canker sore, it will resolve itself in 7-10 days. You should consult a dentist, oral surgeon or ENT specialist to confirm exactly what type of sore you have in your throat. If it has lasted for more than 10 days, or if it has re-occured, have it checked ASAP. ...Read more
Yes: No problem with this. Do not overdo it because you may make it worse. Warm salt water rinses (1 tsp/8oz ) 4-5 times a day really help. Dry the area with a Q-tip first then apply oragel or baby oragel with a Q-tip. Good Luck. Good to consider the effects on your baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unlikely: A true canker sore is a local auto-immune condition that results from different types of stress. It usually doesn't "spread" as you describe.

Otherwise, you likely have a pharyngitis that is unrelated to the canker sore. Either way, you should see a physician. ...Read more
If you can see it: And access it with a cotton swab, try a product called zilactin (many pharmacies carry). Place a small drop on the small swab and apply a thin coating over the canker (grab on to something- burns a little at first.... ) let your dentist treat it w other medications or a laser if you can. 10-14 days is the usual course for resolution. Good luck! ...Read more
I think I have a soft palate canker sore in the back of my throat, it hard to put an ointment on it cause its so far back. How do it treat this?
Mouth rinse: Unfortunately there are no good remedies for canker sores and causes are often unknown. The best treatments are usually just to treat pain, not to cure the sore. My personal favorite is what most call magic mouthwash. It is 1/3 Benadryl (to reduce inflammation), 1/3 viscous Lidocaine (to reduce pain), and 1/3 maalox (to make it stick). You rinse and spit or swallow. Ask your dentist about it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
