@monomoy Most mouth ulcers don’t need treatment. However, if you get mouth ulcers often or they’re extremely painful, a number of treatments can decrease pain and healing time. These include:
using a rinse of saltwater and baking soda
placing milk of magnesia on the mouth ulcer
covering mouth ulcers with baking soda paste
using over-the-counter benzocaine (topical anesthetic) products like Orajel or Anbesol
applying ice to canker sores
using a mouth rinse that contains a steroid to reduce pain and swelling
using topical pastes
placing damp tea bags on your mouth ulcer
taking nutritional supplements like folic acid, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12, and zinc
trying natural remedies such as chamomile tea, echinacea, myrrh, and licorice root
