Is it possible for you to get canker sores at the back of your throat?

Rare

Pharynx
I would get an evaluation by an oral surgeon to diagnose what you have as canker sores rarely occur in the throat.

Feel like I have canker sores down the back of my throat. What can I do to get rid of them?

Canker sore relief

Head-mouth
Consult with your dentist now so he can see the lesions. He may prescribe a mouth wash to sooth the tissue while you wait for the healing. It usually runs its course in 7-10 days. He will make a diagnosis from further information you give him on the history of these lesions.

Is it safe to eat sushi (raw type) when I have large canker sores at the back of my throat. No way to avoid the food touching the sores and one did a minor bleed but for a very short time.

Canker sores?

Canker sores do not usually occur at the back of your throat and therefore I question YOUR diagnosis. I would start by seeing your own physician for an accurate diagnosis. Then you can ask all your questions.

I have canker sores in the back of my mouth chooser to the throat. Does gargling harm or help the healing process?

Helpful

Dentists
Gargling with peroxide based liquids can be helpful in speeding healing. Alcohol based liquids may make it more painful as the alcohol will sting the open sores. Your best bet is a chlorhexidine rinse you can get prescribed from your dentist. That will help kill the germs that are the main cause of the painful sores (canker sores are a secondary infection of a primary autoimmune reaction)

Canker Sores?

If they are truly canker sores also known as aphthous ulcers, the cause is unknown, although possibly related to stress & trauma.

Why am I getting canker sores all the time? I get them in the insides of my lip, on my gum, in the throat area/back of tongue, and on my tongue.

No solid answer

Since you are "prone" towards canker sores the best thing you can try to do is ease their pain. You can take acyclovir regularly to help but it does require a prescription. Lysine might help and you can get that at a health food store. Try to reduce your stress, and if you are a smoker...quit. See if there are any other habits you have. But I bet the best thing you can do is reduce stress.

14YR daughter has 4 CANKER sores in her mouth &#40; one being at the very back of her throat!&#41; took halls and now when swallow feels like sandpaper why??

Canker sores?

Stringio
First, who made the diagnosis of canker sores, also known as aphthous ulcers? True canker sores are of unknown etiology but thought to be an autoimmune response, triggered by stress. She may have that or herpes simplex 1 virus (or both). Both are painful &amp; need to run their course. Halls may help or be further irritating to the mucous membranes. Consult with Dr. regarding diagnosis and treatment.

How do I get rid of this canker sore on back of throat?

Can't

Cold_sore
I am not aware of a proven effective method. If it is a canker sore it will resolve in a couple of days. If it doesn't or you have lots of "canker sores" get a good diagnosis of what is happening.
