Burn... : The way you treated you canker sore is basically a chemical cattery, or burn. This makes the sore feel better, but it still takes as long or sometimes longer to heal.

I have canker sores that sometimes have minor, brief bleeding.  Is it safe to eat raw sushi?  I'm worried about parasites entering my bloodstream.

Perspective: If there are parasites in your sushi, they will enter your system whether or not you have open sores. Remember, you are swallowing your food.
