A canker sore is that bothersome wound in your mouth that, although small, causes a lot of pain and even hinders basic things, like talking, chewing, and eating certain foods. There are many reasons for developing it and different treatments.
Canker sores are small, white inflammations surrounded by a red area. They are non-contagious and happen mainly in the mucosa, like gums, cheeks, and tongue.
