I have a terrible canker sore, on the underside of my tongue. It hurts very badly and I was wondering if anyone knew of anything that might make it go away faster, or feel better. I know there is orajel and the like, but those don't work at all for me. I'd be ever so thankful for anything you had! Thanks so so much
I've always been told to swish with warm salt water. Or swish with Scope or Listerine... that hurts, but apparently mine went away. Does anyone know what causes canker sores?? Mine tend to come up when I've eaten sugary foods, or suckers.
