A canker sores or aphthous ulcers are small, painful ulcers inside the mouth. It’s also the most common type of mouth ulcer. They may occur on the tongue and on the inside linings of the cheeks, lips, and throat. They usually appear white, gray, or yellow in color, with a red border.
They are different from fever blisters, which commonly appear on the outside of your lips or the corners of your mouth.
Interestingly, canker sores take a couple of days before they reach their peak in terms of pain and irritability. In other words, they don’t start hurting immediately upon occurrence, which gives you some time to deal with it before it gets really bad.
Fortunately, there is a trick to eliminate this painful problem and you will only need one ingredient.
Start by mixing a teaspoon of salt in a glass of water. Swish around your mouth and gargle for a couple of minutes then spit out.
The next thing you do is warm up some water, preferably before going to bed, then squeeze some lemon juice and drink it. Don’t add any sugar in it. That’s it.
You’ll be amazed to see that your cancer sore will disappear completely by the next morning.
