Hi Ariel,

Yes, there is actually another thread on the forum where canker sores are being talked about right now.

Welcome to the forum! :)

If you do a search on the forum from the search box above, you can find lots of  threads about canker sores.

Here is a search link to save you a little time.

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

Take the amino acid Lysine.

I have had them several times.

Lysine always got rid of them for me.

If you are prone to have them often Lysine can be used prophylactically (as a preventive).  500mg once a day usually keep them from coming back.  I don't usually get them now unless I am feeling sick and they break out ahead of a flu or some kind of sickness or stress I am going through.

Taken 1000mg a couple times a day usually causes them to go away in 3 to 4 days.

Can be taken 1000mg 3 to 4 day if needed to get rid of mouth ulcers.

To speed  healing swilling your mouth with salt water and spitting it out can accelerate healing of the sores.

I only used the salt water when my mouth was watering from many sores at once especially if one was on my tongue.  Salt water and Lysine can be used together if quicker relief is needed than the Lysine alone can provide.

Otherwise 2 to 3g of Lysine a day in divided doses was all that was needed to get rid of them.

I hope this is helpful.

Not sure if it has to do with my celiac or not, their so painful I have three of them in my mouth now, burning it hurts. Not really sure the cause of them, anyone else get them?


I've gotten them my whole life. I get less now than I did when I was a teenager and in my early 20s. I've heard a connection to celiac but haven't researched it. Usually now when I get them it's from biting my lip. But I used to get them all the time, especially when I was stressed. They do hurt really bad :(

I have posted recently on this but something to add. A friend of mine told me she gets bad sores when she eats potato chips loaded with salt.  I am now finding that I have the same problem if I overindulge. She has non-celiac gluten intollerance; I have celiac disease.  I don't think there is any link with either but you might like to see if it is anything that you are eating.  Also, reading the web, pickles can also be a cause.
