Canker sores are quite common and in most cases clear up pretty soon. In fact, when you were 10-20 years old, you may have even complained about these whitish, extremely sensitive patches that would crop up in your mouth. And you surely know just how difficult eating becomes when this happens! However, that’s actually the simple version – where you should ideally try to soothe the pain, but not much else is required. On the other hand, you have more complex kinds of these sores that need to be treated by the doctor and/or treated using specific home remedies.
The old saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure” and that holds true here as well.
| So long as you know what could be causing the Canker, you can actually take precautions to avoid it. However, this is only true for people who are prone to developing complex sores. The cause can be topical – some injury in the mouth – or it could be an underlying health condition triggered. So knowing these can help you to keep these sores at bay.
But what of those sores that keep popping up a few times a year? Do you just let them mess around with your eating? Not exactly…
|The good news is that for such simple sores you can actually try out quite a few of the available home remedies! And why just for the simple sores – even for the complex ones, you can consult the dentist and try out these remedies alongside the treatment that your dentist recommends!|
|But leaving aside the simple sores and those that do respond to the simple remedies, certain stubborn complex sores may have you feeling a little apprehensive that it is developing into something worse – namely Herpes. Yes, true herpes is a much more stubborn infection, and requires more treatment, but they aren’t the same and can easily be told apart! Knowing how will help you to make this distinction.|
Canker – yes, it may have you in a fit… but most simple sores are pretty harmless – if they’re not caused by injury, then they’re just your body’s harmless way of nudging you into taking better care of it! After all, even having one of these sores ensures, quite well, that you stay off fried, spicy and acidic food for at least a week – that’s definitely giving your digestive system a break!
