I have wat I believe is a canker sore on the roof of my mouth what do I do...?

What you believe?

Aphthous
Canker sores do not generally form on the palate. As a matter of fact in over 40 years of practice I've not personally seen one there. You most likely do not have a canker sore\aphthous ulcer. What to do? See a dentist for a definitive diagnosis and then some guidance.

I have a canker sore that is just beginning to develop on the roof of my mouth. I tend to get them when I get colds. How can I stop it from developing?

Cause not known

Canker_sore
While the cause of canker sore is unknown here are some factors associated with them that you can control. Stress is a big factor. Deficiency in Vitamin B, Zinc, Folic acid can increase canker sores. So can highly acidic diet. Avoid products with SLS. Read toothpaste labels and try one SLS free. Hope this helps.

I have a sore inside my mouth, on my cheek and it feels likea canker sore. However, it doesn't resemble with any of the pictures that I have looked up. Could it be cancer?

Wide variation

Call_dentist
It's nice to try to diagnose something yourself by looking at pictures on the internet, but you really need a trained professional to take a look and diagnose this. Canker sores (Aphthous ulcers) can vary widely in size, appearance and number.

How do you get rid of a canker sore in mouth?

Don't get rid of

Canker_sore
You actually don't get RID of canker sores. What you do is try to lessen their severity and try to have them for the shortest time they will allow. If you get them often...try a prescription of Acyclovir. Lysine from the store has been known to help. They have a life of about 14 days. Stress, fatigue, excessive sun exposure are some of the causes. Watch the spicy or acid foods.

Can I tell me how I can treat canker sore in mouth!?

Canker sore

Aphthous
If it's a true canker sore, it will go away in 5-14 days on its own. Avoid spicy and acidic foods. There are numerous OTC medications\ointments available at the local pharmacy or supermarket to help it feel better. Rinsing alternately with warm salt water or diluted 3% hydrogen peroxide often helps. If you need something stronger or wish quicker relief, see your own dentist.

What should i do to get rid of a mouth ulcer/canker sore?

Licorice

Open-uri20130914-24229-9s9n1j
Licorice has been used since ancient times to treat canker sores in the mouth. Also, small studies show it can be effective when used as a mouthwash -- 50-75% improvement in 1 day. http://tinyurl.com/kr9aeau Sucking on DGL lozenges may work also. Other studies showed positive results with a dissolving licorice disk placed on the sore. http://tinyurl.com/mdvde3o
