Q:What can I do to treat canker sores in my mouth?
A:Over the counter medicines have limited results. But may reduce the discomfort. Avoid acidic and spicy foods. Most mouth sores resolve by themselves in 14 days. If your sore does not go away than see a dentist to have them rule out a more serious condition such as oral cancer.
