Rinse your mouth with aloe juice frequently Put some alum in the sore,2x a day,relieves the pain and quickens healing apply some baking powder on the sores either in powder or paste form to reduce the bacteria in the mouth eat foods rich in vitamin b like whole grain and green leafy vegies, eat yogurts it helps heal and prevent outbreak avoid coffee, citrus fruits and spices they irritate your mouth and increases the pain

I think aloe juice is not available here. I can try alum, though its painfiul like salt and the taste is sour. I will try the baking powder. Thanks for the advice :)

I have two suggestions - both will be painful but they do work. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water. It is yucky and painful (don't swallow it!) but it works. The other suggestion you can do one of two ways. Either rinse your mouth with Listerine or take a Q-tip with Listerine on it and drench the mouth sore with it. Good Luck!

when i have one of those sores, i rinse it with peroxide (undiluted) and then rinse with cold water. i do it twice a day, and rinse my mouth with cold water regularly during the day (along with regular brushing) usually when i do that, it clears up in about 24 hours. for the pain to help you eat, get some orajel or ambesol.

For the fastest cure, use talc powder...And use a clean cloth or anything to put it directly in the sore. It will definitely be painful but it dries up the sore pretty quickly and cures it fast... That's what I do only and just a suggestion..:-)
