My husband, James, has suffered from canker sores for as long as I’ve known him. He would carry around a bottle of Chloraseptic spray and constantly spray inside his mouth. It was one of the only things he found that would work to relieve the pain. He would get anywhere from 3-7 cankers at a time. They are red and white, painful holes in his mouth and gums…nasty little buggers…that would take a good week or two to heal.
It wasn’t until we became more aware of food allergies did I start to think there could also be a link to my husbands cankers. I started keeping a food diary and constantly ask him how his mouth felt. We found that pizza, tomato sauce, freshly juiced apples and carrots, walnuts and banana’s irritated his mouth which resulted in cankers.
He is still able to eat all of the foods that cause irritation. He now brushes his teeth with Baking Soda and Peroxide toothpaste after every meal. The result? No more painful cankers. Yup, it was as easy as that!
