Canker Sore ReliefCanker Sore Remedies - Avoid Certain FoodsIf you have canker sores you will definitely be looking around for effective canker sore remedies.Canker sores can be very painful and may be triggered by certain foods, stress, or injury to the insideof your mouth.Foods that are acidic and can trigger a canker sore are foods like lemons, oranges, pineapples, figs,apples, tomatoes or strawberries. Other causes may be dental problems like a sharp tooth orill-fitting dentures. Sometimes the friction from braces can cause an outbreak, also. Acidic juicesand carbonated drinks can also contribute to the formation or exacerbation of canker sores.There are two types of canker sores, simple and complex. Simple canker sores are caused by thefoods or dental problems discussed above. Complex canker sores are usually caused by someunderlying medical condition that causes immune system depletion like Celiac disease or Crohns.Vitamin and mineral deficiencies play a major role in the development of canker sores.Some people may think that canker sores and cold sores are one and the same. This is not true. Coldsores are caused by a virus and develop on the outside of the mouth. canker sores develop on theinside of the mouth. Though canker sores and cold sores can be equally as painful, they are not thesame thing and both require different treatment.If you have a painful sore or sores in your mouth, feel a burning sensation or rough spot developbefore the sores appear, have a low grade fever, swollen lymph glands or feel sluggish, you may befairly certain you have canker sores.When you have an active canker sore you will need to steer clear of the types of foods we discussedearlier because they will not only cause you pain when you eat them but they may even make yourcondition worse.If the sores do not start to heal on their own in a few days or you cannot eat or drink, you should nothesitate to see your dentist to receive canker sore remedies. You will also want to do yourself a favorand get a toothbrush with a soft bristle. Keeping your mouth clean is a good way to help the cankersores heal up quicker.Some other symptoms that should prompt you to see your dentist are unusually large sores, soresthat spread, sores that last more than three weeks, sores that cause severe pain, or you have a highfever.There is no cure and canker sores can happen to anyone but with care and learning to avoid certainacidic or even spicy foods you may be able to reduce their frequency and severity. If the pain is toosevere your doctor or dentist should be willing to prescribe you with a pain med that is effective inreducing the amount of pain you are feeling.Over the counter canker sore remedies are available and may help with the healing of your cankersores. Over the counter pain medications may also help so you wont need to ask for a prescriptionfrom your doctor or dentist. Copyright Elizabeth English - 2012 5 of 7
  6. 6. Canker Sore ReliefCanker Sore Vs Cold Sore - Inside Or OutsideCanker sore vs Cold sore, what is the difference? Well, to start a cold sore, also called a feverblister, is caused by the herpes simplex virus. Over half of the population has this virus in theirsystem (this isnt the same virus as the one that causes genital herpes). This virus can stay dormantthe majority of the time. Often times it will flare up and lead to a cold sore in times where yourimmune system is compromised such as during times of extreme stress or when you are fighting offother sicknesses.Cold sores usually form on the outside of the mouth. An outbreak will last around 2 weeks in mostcases, though there are some things that can be done to shorten the time length. Cold sores areextremely contagious so you have to be very careful not to come into contact with anyone else whileyou have an outbreak.No kissing, no sharing of eating utensils, toothbrushes, toothpaste, wash clothes, towels, razors, etc.Make sure you wash your hands frequently and dont forget you can pass it on to yourself as well.You can cause other outbreaks by touching the cold sore and then rubbing our eyes, for example.Using supplements as well as some herbal remedies can help either prevent an outbreak or at leasthelp it heal more quickly. Tea tree oil, L-lysine, lemon balms, are just a few of the things that peoplehave reported have helped them avoid, or at least shorten, an outbreak.A canker sore, on the other hand, is a painful sore that usually occurs inside the mouth and cheek.These open sores are very painful and will start off as a small pimple then form into a blister. Thesesores are not caused by a virus, like cold sores are, but rather from bacteria - this is the maindistinction when it comes to canker sore vs cold sore.A canker sore will take about 14 days to heal also. These sores will often leave a scar, though sinceits on the inside of your mouth its not like its going to be disfiguring. Most people will get cankersores during their pre teen and teenage years. The frequency will vary greatly from one person to thenext. some people may be plagued by them virtually one right after another, while others may onlyget one a year. all of this will depend on your personal habits as well as your immune system. Somepeople just seem to be more susceptible to some things than others.Another significant difference between canker sores and cold sores is that canker sores arentcontagious and cold sores are extremely contagious. You dont have to take any special precautionswhile you have a canker sore to not pass them on to to others like you would with a cold sore.Sometimes, frequent canker sore outbreaks can be a sign of some more serious underlyingconditions so if you get them frequently you may want to talk to your doctor. Now that you knowthe difference between canker sore vs cold sore, youll have a better idea of just which of these nastylittle things is making you suffer the next time around.
