This little remedy was a miracle for me. I had been suffering from a canker sore for days and nothing worked. Not even medication. I came across this website and I tried the Aspirin paste. I cut an aspirin in half, crushed the aspirin got a q-tip and rubbed it on and left it for about 30 min. After 30 min it was instant pain relief. The next morning I felt much better and the canker sore was smaller. I truly recommend this remedy it worked Miracles for me and I have tried many different remedies and this worked the best.

Nobody I have ever met gets canker sores as bad as me. I got one in the worst spot possible, right on the side of my tounge. With every mouth movement I have pain. I broke an aspirin in half and held it on there for about 5 minutes. Pain was gone immediately. It's quite amazing. Thank you.

I have canker sore on cheek or tougue quite often, about once every 2 months. I try to avoid bread because I think this closest I can think of the relation. I tried 3 remedies that I saw here, ACV, Baking Soda and Aspirin. Aspirin is the super fast one to stop the pain and feel good right after the 1st application. What I do is split the aspirin in half and one half right at the canker. It will dissolve over time and pain is gone. I used this remedy 2 times and they both worked so I need top share with everybody. ACV & Banking Sode don't work for me.

This really did work and on the first try - I googled this today at work and as soon as I arrived home I went to get some asprin, but only had an Advil Liquid Gel. So I chose to try this method and it also worked. With only ONE liquid Gel capsule I let it dissolve into my mouth. With the saliva that accumulated in my mouth over the few minutes (3 - 5 min) I used the Advil to work as a mouth wash.... and Wa La... It worked. Thanks to the others as well. I can now feel comfortable again.

I want to thank all who took the time to post to this site about the aspirin paste for canker sores. About once a year a get a huge breakout on the roof of my mouth. About 5 days ago I could feel the itch and tingling on the roof of my mouth and today I was in a full blown episode. Pretty much my entire roof was bubbled and I was dying...I tried the peroxide to no avail..I came across this site and saw all the positive from the aspirin therapy and gave it a shot....5 minutes after application I was pain free......unbelievable...

Could almost cry with happiness....Thanks all who submitted

Thanks to the person that posted the aspirin remedy for canker sores. My son had a canker sore that was killing him, so he tucked an aspirin between the sore and his lip and just let it sit there for a few minutes. The pain went away and his sore healed up!

I cannot believe how well this works! I tried baking soda, Allum, peroxide, OTC ointments, etc. I had a large canker sore that was so painful I couldn't sleep. My glands were swollen and my entire jaw ached from the pain. Reading the other reviews, I decided to try the asprin. The pain relief was immediate!!! I simply let the asprin sit on the canker till it completely disolved. With the pain gone, I was able to sleep and this morning, the pain is still gone. What a miracle! This is the best treatment hands down. There is no pain or stinging to endure, just immediate relief. Thank you for sharing a treatment that works!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Earth Clinic! I have been suffering for days with excruciating pain due to canker sores on my tongue. It hurt to much to eat or talk and was nearly debilitating me. I read both about the ACV and aspirin treatments, so I tried th ACV first, being such a big fan of its other benefits-- it hurt so bad I cried! And it only got worse over the next half hour, so desperately I tried the aspirin paste. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS TREATMENT! the pain started subsiding instantly and after about 15 min. I started crying again-- only this time for joy! Pain was totally gone! I was able to eat my first real bit of food in 3 days- and enjoy it! The only thing is the effect only lasted for about 2 hours, so the next day for speeds sake I just put a whole aspirin over the sore spot and let it dissolve- same wonderful effect as the paste. It totally removes pain for about 2 hours, but each time the pain comes back it's less then before, and there is obvious healing happening. I know someone said only do the treatment once a day, but I'm popping 1 aspirin every 2 hours to keep the pain at bay because I don't have time for pain. I figure it won't effect me negatively to take this much aspirin for a couple days until the sores heal. I can't thank you enough, Earth Clinic!

Be careful with the amount of aspirin you consume in one day - it also works as an antiplatelet (blood thinner); for that reason it's given to people that are having heart attacks.

This website is awsome! I get canker sores so easily and sometimes they are so painful I feel like I can't function. I didn't have any vinager so I tried the asprin thing and it worked so well. Its not nearly as painful and I only had the paste on for like 5 min. so I imagine leaving it on for 30 min. would nearly cure the sore.

Aspirin for canker sores: Works wonderfully. Just cut a pill of aspirin into two and apply directly to the sore. In just a little bit of time the sore will feel much better and will start to shrink in size. I've also heard of mixing the powder with water to make into a paste. Either way, good relief!

Aspirin formed into a paste -- it works perfectly

Letting an aspirin dissolve on a canker sore eliminates the pain and cures the canker sore immediately. Within a day, the canker sore is gone.

Any brand of aspirin will do to cure a canker sore, it must be melted in a few drops of water and made into a paste. You can dab the paste directly on the canker sore with a q-tip or the tip of your finger. Allow the paste to sit on the sore for 30 minutes. Within the 30 minutes you should feel the pain and soreness slowly fading away. It has been my experience that after the 30 minutes the canker sore is cured. But if you have one of those stubborn cankies, then use a second application of the paste after a period of 24 hours, reason being the ingredients in the aspirin can be harsh on the sensitive tissue inside our mouths.
