Canker Sore In Throat Treatment
Is it ok to put aspirin directly on canker sore in throat (carefully using Qtip)? Salt water rinse not helping. Doctor confirmed canker sore.
NO!: Aspirin made to be taken orally with copious water, not applied topically. Put directly on tissue will actually burn the area, retard healing, cause sloughing, and may leave a scar. ASPIRIN IS NOT TO BE USED TOPICALLY. Canker sore will heal on its own in 7-10 days. You can dab on, w Q-tip, Orabase-B (an OTC). Or you can block pain transmission by taking Aspirin or Advil (ibuprofen) as per pkg directions. ...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.

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 (diphenhydramine) (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
