canker sores

Posted by

Dear Doc,
I'm fourteen years old and have tried just about anything in my power to get rid of these, with no success. When I went back to the dentist for my check up, they could hardly clean my teeth because I had so many bad canker sores. My dentist gave me a 1/8 fl. oz. bottle of Ora5. He told me all of the percautions, and I followed them but it didn't seem to work. It contains Copper Sulfate, Iodine, Potassium Iodide, and alcohol 1.5%. To tell the truth it almost seemed to spread them more. The bad part about my canker sores is that I get them on my tongue, lips, gums, and up toward the top of the back of my throat. Mama read your article, and so did I, and I was wondering if you miught have some more advice. I stopped using the Ora5, and it seemed to help more to stop using it than to use it. So any more advice that you can give, would be great. Also, I've tried swishing straight Canadian Lord Calvert around, and wondered if thats a good idea?

Thanks,
Dorene

Hi, Dorene,

When I was your age, I also had a problem with cancer sores, although not nearly as bad as yours. If it's any consolation, I eventually grew out of the problem and now maybe have one every few years.

Back then, someone recommended to me an over the counter product that got rid of the pain of these when it was applied to them. I wish I could remember its name. Your pharamacist might know.

I also found that I had outbreaks when I was very tired or stressed, so I tried to reduce those situations.

There is a medication called Valtrex that is a virus-suppressing medication (a viruis causes cold sores) that requires a doctor's prescription. It might be worth asking your doctor about it since your problem is so severe.

Good luck,

Trudy

Hi, Dorene.

Any case as bad as yours certainly has to be an indication of LGS. You are going to have to address that (See the home page and the glossary and then the archives until you see what is happening.)

Let us know what you learn. in the meantime taking some kind of probiotics wil get you started in the right direction (See the probiotics archives.)

Negatively charged water helped me with mouth sores so why not try it. The instructions are on the web site www.energizedwater.info.
