Comment:
For me this is a wonder drug. I use it when I first feel a canker sore starting. It stops it from developing, all symptoms are gone within 3 days. To those trying to get it to stick to the sore, don't bother. Acording to the literature the effect comes from ingesting the drug, not absorption by the sore.

Comment:
I get numerous canker sores, often a rash of them at once. My major complaint with aphthasol is getting it on the sore.

This is the best treatment I have ever tried for canker sores. Sores that usually take two weeks to run their coarse are completely gone in one day.
