2. Apply aloe very gel
Aloe vera has long been regarded for its medicinal qualities, particularly its ability to soothe the pain. That’s why it is often regarded as the “first aid plant”. The gel from this plant can quickly alleviate a myriad of ailments, from sunburns to skin rashes.
It can also ease the pain of canker sores – and shorten the amount of time these sores take to heal. The reason why aloe vera is so effective for treating canker sores (as well as other conditions) is that it contains natural antiseptic qualities. As such, it has the ability to kill off bacteria that may be causing the canker sore or that are aggravating the sore, making it more painful.
Moreover, aloe vera gel contains anti-inflammatory properties, so it can ease the swelling that is associated with a canker sore, making it less painful. Dab some gel on the sore.
