Guide To The Conditions Milk Of Magnesia Helps Treat

Treats Canker Sores

Canker sores are small ulcers appearing in the mouth making talking and eating uncomfortable. Simple canker sores appear about three or four times a year. Complex canker sores are less common and often occur in individuals who have experienced them before. Certain acidic foods, stress, or tissue injury are likely the cause of canker sores. The acid neutralizer in milk of magnesia changes the pH in the mouth to prevent a canker sore from growing. It also coats the sore to relieve pain and irritation. For up to three or four times a day, individuals can use a cotton swab to dab liquid milk of magnesia onto the canker sore.
