I get these all the time, have been since I was a child. Always thought it was my fever blisters internalized. Then learned from a friend her dentist said she could have cancer. Then after an oncology visit, it wasn't cancer. So what was it? Stress, acidic foods, Acid Reflux? But still don't know what it is. But its painful, especially on my tongue with dentures. So there is relief....Kanka in a pen, doesn't sting but numbs gently. I heal quickly thanks to that.

I used to have them HORRIBLY as a child up into my 20's and then outgrew them, I guess. And I had them before I had chicken pox, which it would seem to be related to.
I'd get up to 15 at a time, but luckily, never in my throat.
But all over the inside of my mouth and tongue. What really would hurt is that I was a ketchup kid! I'd eat almost everything with ketchup! And when that acidy tomato would hit . . . . watch OUT!

Great article, great memories, just made my day alot greater.

having pets is wonderful but parents need to be involved and not just tell the kid it's your pet and…

Wonderful advice. Thank you.

Thanks, but I will stick to my stand by recipe that I got from my mother.
