uhhhgggg, i constantly bite myself in the inside of my mouth and it usually leads to canker sores to form... just recently, i bit myself and caused 2
to form. Even worse is that they join together to create a massive fucker....
Any good remedies to rid my mouth of this painful problem?
If you constantly do it, it's possible that there is something wrong with your bite or teeth alignment. If you've been doing it for a long time you
should go see your dentist about it.
But as for cures for canker sores... personally I rarely get them so I can't help you there.
urrr thanks anyways
about the dental alignment issue, i've had braces (now theyre removed) so i dont think thats the issue :S
I use to have the same problem till I was 18. My mom sort of corrected me, she told me to keep my mouth as moist as possible, i.e. chew gum, drink
water often (not a lot, but often), and don't eat so much fried and oily stuffs, which will make the skin in your mouth ultra sensitive and you will
bite on it unconsciously.
And she also told me to look at the mirror when I start biting from the inside, then I realized how freaking ugly that face can be LoL
Ohh and also, my dad has really serious canker sores problem. He doesn't bite at all but apparently he's allergic to certain types of food. Like he can't eat lobster or crab without someone removing the shells for him because the as soon as he bites on the shells he'll have canker sores in a moment. Dunno if that helps.
oh, thats interesting
well yeah less fried/oily foods and i dont think i have any allergies
good ways to prevent them sores, but any good ways to cure or soothe the ones already formed?
my folks always say the fastest way is to burn them with salt. helps them heal faster... that's if u are willing to endure the pain first =]
take it like a man!
i like that idea, my friends keep telling me to try it but dont got the balls to do it :S
yeah, salt is good.
either disolve some sea salt or table salt in warm water and gargle it in ur mouth.
the fastest way which i use is put salt on it, it burns like crazy but after the pain it wont hurt for a long while.
i usually salt it before i eat cause its a pain to try eat with those fuckers.
mouth wash is good too. u'll grow out of it when you get older
i had chicken pox recently and it felt like theres a million cancer sores in my mouth and throat. i used warm salt water to soothe it. drinking lemon+honey+water works too
don't put ur fingers in ur mouth like u know how some people like to pick their teeth using their nails or licking their fingers after a saucy meal ...a lot of that contributes to ur canker sore cause of the bacteria in ur hands that most people don't realize... not to mention having healthier meals too!! eating friend oily stuff all contribute to u more likely having a canker sore ... eat healthy drink healthy ...but ya since u already got it u just gotta wait it out ...gargle salt water or mouth wash to keep cleaning the wound so it heals faster
yeah i've been told that if you avoid fried/oily foods (heaty foods, chinese will understand me) that it prevents that. Something to do with swelling of gums or something... but it works for me at least
I'm also very prone to get cankersore. I've use salt with great result. The cankersore medicine out there only numb the sore to ease the pain but salt actually kills cankersore germs.
there are medical formulae that help. Kanka?
dude go to shoppers drug mart and buy this brand "blistex" use a Q-tip apply a small amount rub onto ur canker sore in the morning. then like maybe mid way thru the day.. guarenteed that itll feel better or start going away the next day or 2
eat less fried or hot food cause it swells up your gums making you more prone to biting yourself.
get more sleep, dont chew too fast, keep the infected part really dry (don't lick or put water on it).
Stop eating so fast
there is this chinese herbal thing that i always depend on having canker sore.. it is called hou feng san. super popular... and if you put it on it will heal fast ( usually takes me 2-3 days versus a week for a gigantic one)... and it also numb the pain.. try it..
dont bite yourself, problem solved. i know we get hungry sometimes but thats no excuse to eat ourselves
i also get crankersore pretty often.
For me, it's probably for eatting too much fried food.
If you want the pain to go away, there is some medicine that makes the crankersore numb; but thats only to reduce the pain temp(4-5 hours?)
it's becaused ur tired, stressed, and most of all eating too much junk food!!!
so be more active, relax a bit, and start eating healthy... that should fix almost anything
that whole chinese concept about 'hot air' increasing when u eat fried food is actually blood acidity, so i would recommend lowering the intake of
the causes are pretty much across the board. i say improve your lifestyle in general.
lol hot air... (im chinese, so i get it)
yeah, the shit from Shoppers is shit. doesnt work and it hurts like ffffff when u apply it.
did the salt thing, ended up running round the house for 5 minutes.
interesting to know that licking it will make it worse, cuz i lick mine all the time... and the finger thing ><
thanks for the help and tips to prevent these things in the future. I think that the current ones are healing
i'm on the wintermelon powder for healin my mouth sores
hahahaha i remember that stuff when i was a kid... i think i cried every time my mom whipped that shit out
@ sobakchi.....many people pointed out that the watermelon frost thing you're backing (even last time someone asked about canker sores) is quite
dangerous, as it has some health concerns to humans...you should really consider using something else...
@oxy5....what were you trying? I'm pretty sure kanka is a good formula and actually works, so long as you don't do anything too drastic. but yea...whatever you're doing, mix it with what darkray suggested....fruits are good for you...I dunno, go vegetarian for a week or something, and it'll go away
this happen to me once it hurts so much just can't even move....i toke liquid advil gel for like 3 weeks and use alot of mouth wash....for me ice cube help me stop the pain a little when...if you have ballz you can just poke at it with a needle and hope for the best...hehe..
after the first time you bite yourself, it will get a little swollen even though you might not notice it. the surface will be rougher too due to the
injuries. this makes it easier to bite it again and again and again...... you get the picture.
i would just watch out for it and be careful when you eat, or talk. it should heal in a week. if it really bugs you beyond imagine, you can get things gel-like paste called "oralbase" at your local pharmacy, walgreens, etc. just remember to dry the area first before you apply it or else it doesnt stay on. i think there are other products out there similar with some typical anesthetic (benzocaine in low concentrations) to help with the pain.
