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. ...Read more

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

Helpful: 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). ...Read more
