Chemical Burn: You may have burned the tender tissue with your home remedy. I do not know what the small holes are, but baking soda and peroxide will not cure them.

Do yourself a favor and buy toothpaste that has these ingredients in the paste. Baking soda is too abrasive to be used directly. ...Read more
