Prevent Canker Sores:
Tips to Avoid Outbreaks
Because there is no one single cause of canker sores, they are somewhat difficult to prevent. But once you've had one, you'll clearly want to avoid canker sores in the future.
Keep these tips in mind to learn how to help prevent canker sores.
Lower Your Stress and Anxiety Levels
Fatigue and emotional stress are commonly associated with the appearance of canker sores. Make sure you get plenty of rest and relaxation.
Avoid Small Mouth Injuries
If you bite the inside of the cheek or tongue, it can make you more prone to canker sores.
Watch What You Eat:
Avoid Spicy and Acidic Foods
Once a canker sore starts, avoid hot, spicy, and acidic foods or drinks. These items irritate the canker sore and can make it more painful.
