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.

Cameron wrote about his experience with Canker-Rid, so you can go there to get a second opinion.

Update: Jason wrote a review of Canker-Rid as well.

  4. Hey Dan, im an avid wrestler and constantly get canker sores because im always getting hit in the mouth. I’ve tried the special toothpaste and herbal remedies from mrs greens, but nothing seems to work. After testing several products the best pain liquid i’ve found so far is KANKA professional strength pain liquid by Blistex. I also recently stumbled upon a remedy that uses Listerine at the initial stages of a canker sore. I was wondering if you still had any samples of Canker-Rid that i could try? let me know, thanks.

  8. I had non-stop outbreak of canker sore since may, 2005. there were only 4 days that I did not have any sore in side my mouth. Since I ordered it on October 6, 2005 and got it at the 10th. At that time, I had one in the midst of it, another one is about to break open, I appied Canker Rid on both spots. Those were healed within 3 days, for some reason I have not had any since then as of today, October 20, 2005. I thank God have this wonderful lotion made and it should be available in all drug store.

  9. I found the Canker-Rid website after searching frantically on the internet for something to help my four year old daughter who gets terribly painful canker sores that make it unable for her to eat and be her normal happy self until the sore heals. I tried several things over the counter, met with her pediatrician who could only offer a mouth rinse as an option, so when I found Canker-Rid I was more than willing to give it a chance. I recieved the package very quickly and the customer service was exceptional. We immediately applied it on our daughters canker sore and it does sting when applied but it also forms a protective coating which helped our little one with the severe pain the sore had caused. The sore healed within a few days and our daughter was so happy that the bee stuff as she called it worked. She was also tickled that we got a free sample of honey candy that she really enjoyed. Thank you Mr. Durham for great products and above all, great customer service.

  10. I have had “Mouth Uclers” all my life….a friend that I work with found this product by searching the internet….after she heard me whine and complain about my mouth being sore….I ordered a bottle.

    About 3 days later, I came home from work and much to my surprise, my order was in!

    I immediately opened the bottle and applied it to the large ulcer in my mouth…..I will tell you that it stung and it brought tears to my eyes (please remember that I told you this was a large ulcer….dime size), but after just a few seconds….it was WONDERFUL! There was a coating over the ulcer and the pain was gone….I could talk and eat without pain!

    I am sold on this product….I only wish that I had known about it years ago!

  11. I suffered for 10 years with sores on my tongue. I thought I found a cure when I started making my own juice. If I made it everyday I wouldn’t get any sores but last year it stopped working. I was getting them every week. One would go away and another would start. I have no idea why I get them but most of the time they were so painful I couldn’t eat. I researched online and some one suggested Lysine so I took that and other vitamins. Nothing worked. I think it was last spring when I came upon the canker rid web site. I didn’t really expect it to work but I thought for the price it was worth it. I had a sore at the time and still had it when I got my canker rid. I’m not sure if it helped get rid of that one but I haven’t had one since. NOT ONE!! Every time I get that little tingle on my tongue I would put it on my tongue if it stung a lot I knew it was going to be a bad one and I just kept putting it on every night and in the morning. It is just such a relief. I thank God every day for this stuff. I just ordered my second bottle even though I still have some left in my first one. I don’t want to run out.
    Thank you and God Bless you all!

  12. I started using Canker Rid a few years back. I have not honestly found anything that worked so incredibly effective. I’ve suffered with mouth ulcers all of my life. I’ve heard a dozen or more names these things are called. I just call them painful. I ordered Canker Rid and started using it immediately. Needless to say, not only did it clear up the sores I had but it apparently has prevented them from coming back. I don’t believe that it is at all a coincidence that they quit appearing except for maybe one or two a year, when I started using Canker Rid. I used to get at least one every six weeks or sooner. It does work for what I have. I call what I get, ulcers. They are little crater looking things. I’ve had them in the lining of my cheeks, on my lips and on my tongue. It is some kind of a virus that moves around according to what my doctor has told me. Canker Rid works.

  13. Thank you so much for this product. I have suffered for many years with canker sores and usually had to wait that 5-7 day period until eating and speaking was bearable. Within 10 seconds of applying this product the pain was gone. The protective coating made eating and speaking pain free. I will recommend canker – rid to all my friends and family. Thank you again, David DelPrete

  14. I’d like to get a sample of canker-rid. Where can you buy it or can you?

    Comment by Leslie on November 10, 2005 @ 4:42 pm
  15. I don’t often get canker sores, but when I do, rough spots on my teeth wear at them and make them last a really long time. Out of pain and desperation, I did an internet search to try to find relief. I found the Canker Rid site and took a chance. It works great to coat the area so that it can heal.

    Comment by deborah on November 10, 2005 @ 7:43 pm
  16. Leslie: You can buy it from their web site.

  17. I’ve been suffering from canker sores for the last 17 years, since I was 15, and so far canker-rid is the only thing that worked for me. I wasn’t very hopeful when I ordered my bottle, just decided to take the chance and it paid off. I’m very happy I decided to give it a try! When I get canker sores, which is a about once or twice a year, I get them in clusters and normally one ulcer lasts about 2 weeks. With canker-rid they start healing immediately and don’t develop into large painful ones. In about 2 days they heal completely. This is amazing.

  18. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful Canker Rid is. I am so grateful to Tim Durham and this miraculous product. I have suffered from canker sores all my life. Nothing has ever worked until this amazing product. I just recently had the worst sore that I have ever had in my life after some dental work I had. It is almost gone in 3 days now. All the other times I get them they disappear in 1-2 days. I have actually had some disappear the next morning after applying Canker Rid the previous evening. I love the way Canker Rid tastes too and it takes the pain away immediately. I would recommend this to everyone who suffers from canker sores. There is absolutley nothing and I mean nothing that will ever work as incredible as this product does. You saved my life when I found your website. Thanks so much Tim for your amazing product. I will be a customer for life.

  19. My wife has a low tolerance to stress. When a serious stress event occurs for her, she develops mouth sores so much that even her uvula gets a sore! The pain was so overbearing and we went to see ENT(Ear,Nose,Throat) doctor. He wrote a prescription for Valtrex, a poweful anti-viral medication. Before our prescription insurance coverage, the drug was almost $300! The bad news was that after the series of this med, we did not notice any improvement. Then I started researching a possible remedy over the internet. After several hours, I found Canker Rid. I was skeptical at first, but since it’s natural I decided to try it. Guess what? The sores lasted less than a week and immediate pain was improved dramatically! We were so happy to find a natural product. I recommended this product to another coworker who is also a RN. I will also be a Durham Bee Farm for a long, long time! Thank you so much for a wonderful natural product.

  20. This product is truly amazing. Tried to post before but don’t see it – so here goes again. My son has braces and got three canker sores! Poor guy. Everything was causing him pain and the braces only made it worse, so I didn’t fret much when the Canker-Rid stung him a bit. In one day, the small canker sore was gone, Day 2, the medium one was vanished. Day 3, the large and most painful one was basically non-existant. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for a product that truly works, for rushing out my order. Now my son can eat again and get back to his normal life without constant pain. What more can I say? I will never be without it because you never know when you will need Canker-Rid and because it works!

  21. I had been given a bottle of Canker-Rid a couple of years ago and forgot all about it until I got a cold sore this week. I used the over-the-counter medication Campho-Phenique for a couple of days but it seemed to have grown. I found my bottle of Canker-Rid and used it right away. The next day it had shrunk and no longer hurt. Today (day two) it’s almost gone completely.

  22. I used canker-rid for me and my 8 y/o daughter.It really works! If you can catch the sore in the beginning before it gets to a sore I find 2-3 applications and its gone that day! If it is already a sore then it takes about 2-3 days before its totally gone but hey thats better than 7-10 days of suffering. My daughter is just amazed how well it works-not to mention happy because she will never suffer from another canker sore as long as she has canker-rid.I am so happy I found your site! Thank you

    Comment by Cathy on December 19, 2005 @ 6:59 am
  23. I never read, much less send in testimonials for a product, but Canker-Rid is an exception. I am getting canker sores about one time a month lately, and with much discomfort. This product cut the pain and discomfort down by about 90%. It is well worth the money. I have not found such a good product for these ever!

    Comment by Carol on December 20, 2005 @ 6:33 pm
  24. I have been a canker-rid user for over 2 years now. It is the best product for both pain relief and healing of the sores that I know of. Caker-rid does not instantly rid your mouth of the sores (I don’t know any product that can); but it can speed the healing of them providing you take care of your mouth by keeping it clean.

    Comment by Jeff on December 22, 2005 @ 1:55 pm
  25. I just purchased my second and third bottles of Canker-Rid for my husband. Well, wouldn’t you know I got a cold sore also and tried it. It hurt like %^&& at first, but then the seal formed and it didn’t hurt anymore. My husband has had these mouth sores all of his life, and this is the first thing that actually worked. He also says that when his throat is sore it helps to drop a few drops in the back of his mouth and it helps his throat.

    We also take propolis supplements available from Durhams Bees. My husband has only had one outbreak in the past 9 months since he started the propolis supplements. Before that, he had them constantly!

  26. I had a big problem trying to quit smoking. Every time I quit, which beleive it or not was the easy part, I would get these huge mouth ulcers. It was probably from the stress according to my doctor. I was told they just had to run their course, which was about 2 weeks! There was nothing else he could do. It would finally clear up and then the first time I would get a little stressed, here they come again. I always started smoking again because it was just too much pain. My wife Jari heard of Canker-Rid from my brother Bob. It smarts real good but it is the first thing that has ever worked. She also just ordered the capsules and so far, frequency & severity of these sores is less all the tome. Also I haven’t smoked in 3 months and feel great. I never believed I would find anything that worked. No one ever believed me about the sores except my wife, Jari. They all thought I just couldn’t quit or didn’t want to quit smoking. Thanks and I can’t believe everyone doesn’t have Canker-Rid in their medicine cabinet! Randy Farmer

  27. I have been plagued with canker sores for many years. I, like so many others, have tried every over the counter medicine. Some products gave some relief from the pain, but nothing ever helped speed up the healing of a canker. I was desperate, so I went online, and found a number of products, ordered Canker Rid and applied it the minute I received it in the mail. It was a little unremarkable when I first applied it but by the next day the canker had reduced a little in size but reduced about all of the pain. The pain is the worst part about a canker and that was such a relief. Since than, I am a faithful user and just bought some for my neice in college who also suffers time to time with this painful annoyance. Thanks!

  28. My 15 year old daughter has been suffering with cankor sores for the past three years. Four months ago, she started wearing braces. Her outbreaks became worse. Both her doctor and dentist said there really was nothing they could do. They perscribed something for the pain, but I didn’t like the idea of her using a perscription. We tried everything on the market including certain vitamin supplements. Nothing worked. Some of these products even made the sore worse. I decided to search the internet and came across several advertisments. The one I picked was a product called Canker-Rid. I spoke to Tim, the owner, who was very concerned, kind and knowledgable. My daughter had three cankor sores when we received the product. Within three to four days the cankor sores were gone. It’s been about a month now and she hasn’t had an outbreak. The minute she feels like one is forming, she uses cankor-rid, and nothing develops. This product worked for her. It seems to stops the virus from spreading almost immediately. In addition, when I am stressed I suffer from singles. This is a very painful condition. Recently, I had an outbreak and decided to try Cankor-rid. To my surprise, they were dried within three to four days.

    Because this product worked for my daughter and myself, I have ordered Queens’ Delight and Propolis Salve. I also have fibroymalgia and chronic myofacio pain with some other health issues. Hopefully, these products will help. Soon, I will provide an update regarding these products. Thank you for lisoning.

  29. I was having repeated bouts of canker sores and my husband found your site while searching the web for potential cures. I was naturally a little skeptical about all the comments I read but figured I’d buy one bottle and give it a try. Canker-Rid really does work and makes it much easier to cope with canker sores. There is nothing available over the counter that even comes close to relieving the pain and healing the sores as quickly as Canker-Rid. The stinging when you first apply it takes some getting used to but it’s worth it when you can eat, drink and brush your teeth without that nagging soreness afterwards. I lent that initial bottle to a few friends and have bought one for a family member as well. I have since picked up a few more bottles of Canker-Rid and will be a customer for life. So, believe what you read on this website. The stuff works!

  30. I get canker sores every once in a while and in the last few years have gotten them on the sides of my tongue(you know right where they rub on your teeth constantly!!!)which is WAY worse than anywhere else in your mouth, in my opinion. Like everyone else, I tried all the OTC remedies and nothing worked. I found Canker-Rid on the net and it sounded like it was worth a try…ordered using next day air(I was in a hurry!), and I can honestly say it is the best thing I have ever used. It has been 24 hours since I started using the product. With the sores rubbing on my teeth while I eat and talk, naturally they still hurt a little, but now I am able to eat without choking down my food, and talk without a strange accent. I strongly recommend.

  31. I have just received my 3rd order of Canker-rid, you don’t have to order very often because one bottle last a long time. I love this stuff, I have been having cold sores and mouth ulcers since I was 11 yrs old. My son who is 20yrs old is also a sufferer of these sores. We both keep a bottle of Canker-rid around for break outs. My sons are so severe sometimes they are large as dimes and he has several at a time. We have tried everything (and I mean everything). Canker-rid works to not only kills the pain (so you can eat and talk)but shortens the time you have the sore to just 3 or 4 days. There have even been times when I have put Canker-rid on the first sign of a sore (mainly at bedtime) and the sore WILL BE GONE!! This stuff never allowed the sore to continue to get worse. I will always have Canker-Rid around. I have already recommended it to all my friends.

  32. I have had canker sores for my whole life and I am now 30 years old. I had been to many doctors, dentists, etc to try and find a cure. I was never able to find anything that allevited the pain for long. As I got older I noticed they were getting worse and worse. One day I couldn’t stand the pain, it was unbearable and I logged onto WebMD to see if there was any news on a supposed laser I had read about in a health magazine that could “zap” away canker sores. Instead, I saw an ad for Canker-rid. I have to say I was skeptical at first even after reading the testimonials but I was willing to try anything. I paid almost more than the drug itself to have it shipped to me overnight. To my amazement it worked and continues to work!!! My canker sores never get bigger than a very small dot because I put Canker-Rid on them as soon as I feel them forming. They also only last for probably 3 days at the most now and I can barely feel them. Previously they had lasted for 10 or more days and generally grew to be HUGE and were excruciatingly painful. My first bottle lasted for almost a year and I am now ordering my second shipment and thought it would be appropriate to post a testimonial!

    I have recommended Canker-Rid to everyone! My dentist, friends and co-workers. I don’t understand why more people don’t know about this wonder drug!!! I will never be without a bottle of it!

  33. My husband developed a bad case of sore mouth/tongue. He was off work for 3 weeks, he could not talk or eat. We saw the doctor during this time and he was put on two types of antibiotics to try to clear up these mouth/tongue sores. After the course of antibiotics he felt better for one day and then it all started again. He was desperate and miserable. I looked up mouth sores on the internet and saw the advertisement for Canker-Rid. I read the testimonials and realized that other people were going through the same problems as my husband. I ordered one bottle of Canker-Rid to see if it could help my husband.(help it did and I ordered more Canker-Rid to be on hand). He started feeling better that night and by the third day he was almost back to normal. We were thrilled!!! I did the initial applications for him and saw the sores heal on a daily basis and the redness in other areas disappear within 24hrs. Wish we knew about Canker-Rid when the sores started, but glad we know now:). Your product is wonderful.
