Customer Question

Hello there! My son is currently having problems with a canker sore in his mouth. It is about a quarter inch in diameter on his interior front bot***** *****p. He's had it going on about a week and it doesn't seem to be getting any better, only worse. Is there an over-the-counter treatment that can help us? We tried the salt water and that didn't seem to help.

Hi.

Orabase or Oragel ointment along with Biotene oral rinse can help here. If that doesn't take care of it he'll need a prescription for a Medrol Dosepak

Let me know if you need more information please
