Default POLL: Do you use Listerine to kill your canker sores?

It stings like hell for 30 seconds, but then after awhile, it gets it numb.
I notice they go away faster too.

Alcohol helps dry them out faster.

I just rub a lot of salt on it, then let it disolve, twice and then I swish salt water around in my mouth for a while.

Isopropyl alcohol on a cloth or tissue. Put it in your mouth overnight on the sore. Wake up next day, its gone.

No. I'll use Medicated Blistex (lip balm) iff I don't have kanka or another OTC canker sore pain reliever. Blistex has the same effect, hurts like hell for a few seconds then it's numb for quite a while. But the canker sore med stuff lasts longer--but has a slightly worse taste (both are awful).

Sort of....I brush the sore until it bleeds, then rinse with saltwater, after that I soak a q-tip in Listerine and dab it on the canker sore.....gone the next day.

It's a small ulcer on the inside of your mouth (it's not a cold sore). They last a few days and can hurt a lot.
