I've found an excellent canker sore treatment

I read Dr. Stoll's original book 5 years ago and tried glyox without success on my canker sores. I have sufferred from these sores for more than 20 years. When I get them they usually grow to at least an 1/8" diameter, sometimes larger, and are very painful. Any time I accidentally bite my cheek or lip or otherwise injure mouth or tongue tissue even in the slightest I get a canker sore.

I started using Crest ProHealth non-alcohol mouthwash several months ago once or twice a day. Since that time my incidence of canker sores has gone way down. When I have gotten a sore or feel the sore coming on I use the mouthwash 3 or 4 times a day focusing on the sore area. Thus far sores have never gotten larger than a pin head, lasted for more than 4 days or gotten painful.

Anyone else who suffers from this should try it. Other mouthwashes may work as well. I haven't tried them but I know Crest ProHealth has worked great for me.

I was just browsing the Crest site and they do not recommend using this for healing canker sores. Don't know why not though. I wrote them and will see what they say.

I've found three things:
1) canker sores happen more frequently when I've decreased my Vit A foods (dark green veggies);
2) a touch of Vince (made by Lactona; a buffered oxygenating oral rince & dentrice), which is a dry tooth brushing product, works great (it was sold by Warner-Lambert; I don't know if it is still on the market or not). A little tricky to put on...I put some in the lid, dampen my finger, nearly dry it, touch the product and apply to my sore. I apply it at least morning and night. The sore will be gone in a day.
3) my husband cauterises his by holding a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol on the sore. This burns... and it stops the sore.

I think the oxygenating action is what causes the Vince to be effective. We originally bought it because we needed a product in it...an old fashioned pharmacy recommended it for the ingredient we need. It might have been calcium carbonate.

A good calcium will help raise the alkalinity of your body. It is difficult for an alkaline body to be sick. When our body becomes too acidic, we lose ground from our good health.

Do you suffer from cold sores, too? When I feel the burn associated with one coming in, I immediately reach for L-Lysine caps. Its an amino acid our body runs out of. It the same "effective ingredient" the put in the topical ointments for cold sores.

Just some thoughts.

Thanks, bbaumer.

NOTHING works 100% for ANY chronic problem like recurrent canker sores. If one will always look to LGS as the hidden cause, and one keeps trying new local stuff, they will probably eventually find something that works for them. The lesson is: never stop looking and learning.

Just wondering if anyone else had tried this yet and if so did it work for you? Crest did not respond to my inquiry other than the automated "Thanks for writing" generic response.
