what home cures are out there for canker sores

Recurrent canker sores are often associated with zinc deficiency, so sucking on zinc lozenges daily can prevent canker sores. Other home remedies include rinsing your mouth with a licorice tincture (2 dropper fulls in 4-6 oz. of water) and applying probiotic powder (lactobacillus acidophilus live cultures) to the sores.
