OMG! I know that my bf loves me no matter what and he will get down on one knee no matter what but OMG did I really have to get a gigantic canker sore??? It is on the edge of my lip and it is from a bad reaction I had to a toothpaste I recently tried and it looks TERRIBLE! It honestly looks like I was out cheating and ended up with the ugliest, nastiest thing ever!!
I’m so worried! I guess all this stressed has proved to be NO GOOD but bf decided that I should come up this weekend because his school load isn’t as bad as he anticipated…..this morning my lip was fine and THEN this canker just exploded out of nowhere! I’m so ashamed to even show my face this weekend! Including the fact that he said he wanted to show me off to a bunch of his friends in the Navy he has been training with. I’m really considering not even going 🙁 it looks terrible. well wish me luck and if you have any canker sore remedies you want to share I’ll have both ears wide open to listen!

I’ve used some ointments before, but none of the ones i used cleared things up that fast. Maybe someone else will have a good remedy that is fast.

Buy vitamin e capsules! Break open the capsule and use the stuff inside directly on the sore. It works great.
Also, you could go to the pharmacy and ask the pharmacist. They’ll give you good advice. (Though I bet they’ll say vitamin e!) :p

Are you sure it’s not a cold sore, because if it is often a physician will be willing to prescribe you some valacylovir to shorten the duration… but you really have to take it in the first 48 to 72 hours for best effect.
Also licorice is a natural antiviral, so often licorice tea is helpful (or so one of my naturopath friends tells me).
Remember that this isn’t medical advice and that it’s best to see your physician if you have any questions about an illness or treatment 🙂

Heehee, DG, you’re funny bc you’re so politically correct regarding anything remotely medical 🙂 Anyways, if you can’t get any remedies to help it go away in time, just throw some concealer over that bad boy and forget about it!! No one will notice, I GUARANTEE it, unless they come like, 3 inches from your face, which hopefully the only one who will be doing that is your BF, who loves you no matter what you look like…seriously, I promise no one will even look twice…have a fun weekend!

ditto with the pp!!!! go to the pharmacy and they can either prescribe or recommend something (i’m so not a doc so i can say these things :P)… carmex also works well to soothe the dry skin.
