“Canker sores are painful blisters that form on the inside of the mouth, cheeks, and inner lips, as well as on the tongue, affecting 56 million people annually.Â If left untreated, they can last from seven to 21 days, causing pain each time you eat, drink, chew, or move your mouth.Â While nobody knows for sure what causes canker sores, possibilities include increased stress, lower immunity, trauma (e.g. cheek bites, irritation from braces), vitamin B12 or iron deficiencies, hormonal changes, or food allergies.
Canker Cover is the only over-the-counter canker sore treatment shown in clinical studies to significantly speed treatment.Â The pill shaped patch adheres to the sore and forms a gel patch that protects the sore, relieves the pain, and speeds treatment.Â In two separate clinical studies, Canker Cover was shown to heal most canker sores within 24 hours and to be more effective than benzocaine, the active in most canker sore products, eliminating pain.
No other canker sore products in the world have shown this result.Â Canker Cover is also made from natural ingredients that dissolve over time, offering immediate pain relief upon application while covering and protecting the lesion from bacteria and other irritants.
The Canker Cover patch is powered by natural, edible ingredients, including natural menthol, citrus oil and sea salt.Â Suggested retail is $9.99 for a box of six patches.”
I get canker sores constantly, mostly from stress and lack of sleep.Â They often last for around a week, causing a great deal of discomfort.Â Of course, I haven’t gotten a canker sore since I received Canker Cover.Â I had one right before it arrived, and then when I left it home while visiting relatives – go figure.Â So while I did receive Canker Cover to review, I haven’t gotten there yet.Â However, it sounds like just what I’m always looking for when plagued with canker sores!
One of you ladies will get to try Canker Cover for yourself, or pass it on to a loved one.
