How To Heal A Canker Sore Quickly!

When I was a kid, I got canker sores all the time. I really haven't had any as an adult... until recently. I really believe that my recent canker sore was caused by exfoliating my lips too aggressively. Lesson learned.

My canker sore wasn't healing. It was painful, annoying and very unattractive as it was on the inside of my lower lip. Eating was difficult as I kept biting it and making it worse. So, I scoured the internet looking for a solution.

I took zinc tablets to boost my immunity, tried honey, sipped chamomile tea, and even left the cooled tea bag on the sore in an attempt to heal it more quickly but nothing was working. It wasn't healing at all and I was getting worried.

Then it dawned on me, coconut oil is excellent for oral health. It's also antibacterial..... After applying coconut oil to my cold sore a few times a day as well as before bed, it felt better and began to shrink and heal very quickly. Within 3 days my canker sore was completely gone!

I always recommend cold-pressed, organic, non-GMO extra virgin coconut oil.

If you decide to give this a try, while you're at it apply some to your hair, it will definitely thank you!

So, if you or your child runs into one of those annoying canker sores, try healing it with some coconut oil. If it's a chronic problem, look at ways to boost immunity.

  1. oh I dont get them often anymore but every now and then

    1. I hadn't had one since I was a kid. I'm sure it was from over exfoliating my lips. Try the coconut oil if you get one again. It worked fast!
