Hey everyone! I'm going a little bit crazy here...I got a bad canker sore last week, which was painful enough, but then I tried a home remedy...big mistake! I heard that if you hold an aspirin on the sore until it dissolves, it will help both kill the pain and heal the sore. Well, it helped the pain somewhat, but it also ate away at my gums, so they're pretty much raw at the moment. I think the fault is partly mine - I probably held the aspirin on the sore for too long. I should have read up on it more before I tried it - I found out later that the longest time other people held the aspirin there was about half an hour. Live and learn the hard way, I guess.
So, anyway, because of the sore, I am more or less on a diet that consists of foods that I don't really have to chew - soup, yogurt, rice, etc. - since any movement of my mouth is pretty much excruciating. (I got a new food processor recently - guess I'll be giving it a workout!) As if that's not bad enough, I woke up to find two new sores forming!
However, I am determined to beat these things, so if ANY of you have any experience or know any remedies, please share! I'm getting slightly desperate...
