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.

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.

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.

What to do if I have a painful canker sore in the back of my throat,what can be done?

If you can see it

Pharynx
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!

My husband keeps getting a huge canker sore in the back of his mouth, almost throat . It goes away and comes back. What could be causing it?

A virus

A good economical fix is to go to your local pharmacy an buy a product called Zilactin. Dry the ulcer with cotton tip applicator the apply a small pea sized drop of the gel. Wait until the gel becomes opaque. Plain Zilactin stings. Zilactin recognized this and added benzocaine to their product. The mixture is called Zilactin B. You might have a vitamin deficiency. Check with your primary care.
