I have a new mouth ulcer inside, and I want to get rid of it quickly. Any effective OTC treatments?
Yes: For adults you may find applying tea tree oil with a qtip a couple times a day can speed healing. It stings but is effective. Also homeopathic rhus tox 2-3 times a day can help with mouth ulcers. If it is trauma from biting your gum, these two suggestions may not help as much. Swish and spit with mouth wash and peroxide (50/50) can also be helpful. (also stings a bit).

Self diagnosis: So perhaps your self diagnosis and choice of treatment is erroneous. Perhaps it's an infection, or one of hundreds of other possible mouth lesions. Please call your Dentist and have the "ulcer" evaluated and treated. You'll be glad you did.See 1 more doctor answer

Tincture of time: The right approach depends on identifying the cause. For example, a traumatic ulcer may be due to an accidental bite injury, or due to friction against a sharp tooth, appliance, or prosthetic device, and elimination of the cause is curative. Canker sores are of unknown cause, and time alone will allow healing. There are other ulcerative mucous membrane diseases, and diagnosis is necessary for cure.See 2 more doctor answers

Biopsy may be needed: The treatment for the recurrent ulcer depends on the cause. Certain infections can be treated with antibiotics. Less common causes can be determined by having a biopsy performed by a dermatologist.
Ulcer or blister?: An ulcer would be described as a crater. This is best treated with 50% mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide rinses for 2 minutes 3x per day. A blister is fluid filled. Rinse with 1/2 tsp of salt in 5 oz cup of water for 2 minutes 3 x per day do not pop.
Takes time: Mouth ulcers or canker sores can take a long time to heal. It usually takes 7 to 10 days or more for healing. You can relieve some symptoms with warm salt water rinse. I have tried otc products such as ambosol and another one that coats the sore, but haven't had much luck with them. They irritate the ulcer and make it take longer to heal. The only known cure for mouth ulcers is time.See 2 more doctor answers
See your dentist and find out what is the nature of the ulcer and its probable cause. (S)he will then tell you how to treat it.
If it turns out to be an aphthous ulcer (a cold sore), I like to recommend Chloraseptic liquid for relief of pain. It will not burn the tissue as Benzocaine will.
Mild Non-acidic diet: Warm saline rinses. Saline is made with one teaspoon table salt dissolved in 8 ounces of water. If you can find a dentist who has a biolase waterlase laser (some other dental lasers work also) then they can put a "laser bandage" on it which will stop most or all of the pain with 2 minutes of laser treatment and will speed healing.
Aphthasol (amlexanox): Talk to your dentist about this product. 'aphthasol' is the brand name for an oral, Amlexanox oral paste, 5%. It tastes like a mud patch, but has been known to provide great relief during outbreaks. It can only be ordered thru specific dental suppliers- so pharmacies will not carry this product. Anti-fungal mouth rinses work, but can take upto 10 days to work- essentially the duration of ulcer.
Yes: Your mouth can have ulcers from time to time and will generally heal within a week or two.
Comfortable: Anything that makes you comfortable. It takes about 2 weeks to go away no matter what you seem to do. However check with your pharmacy for a few items that may make you more comfortable - remember that they generally do not shorten the 2 week time.
