As I said before, I received a free sample of Canker-Rid with the understanding that I would write about how well it worked. (By the way, I have a few more free samples. If you’re interested in getting one, let me know).
The day it came in the mail I had two canker sores that were beginning to heal, but they still hurt. The bottle of Canker-Rid is similar to an eye-drop bottle, meaning you have to squeeze the liquid onto the canker sore. Gravity made it difficult to apply the liquid to the canker sore located on the inside of my upper lip. I tried applying it several times but never got the liquid to stay on the sore.
I eventually used a Q-tip, but the cotton absorbed a tremendous amount of Canker-Rid before it was finally wet enough and when I did apply it, boy oh boy, did it sting. I’m sure the pain was due in part to the fact that I had to rub the canker sore with the Q-tip, but the liquid itself packs a punch as well. There has to be a better way to apply it.
The second canker sore was on the inside of my lower lip, so it was easy to squeeze the liquid right onto the sore. It stung for about 10-15 seconds, then formed a protective covering over the sore. That was very helpful because it no longer hurt.
After reading the testimonials on the Canker-Rid web site, I was expecting a miracle solution that would clear up a canker sore in seconds. With that as my expectation, I was disappointed, but it wasn’t realistic. The sores stayed for another day or two, but Canker-Rid kept them from hurting, which was great. I don’t know if it made them go away faster than normal but after using it I would recommend Canker-Rid above anything else I’ve tried thus far.
