Mouth Sores

5 Ways To Treat Canker Sores In Toddlers

Avoid feeding your child with spicy, acidic, and scratchy or hard foods like nuts, potato chips, which can aggravate tender mouth sores. Be sure your child uses toothbrushes with soft bristles and avoids toothpastes or mouthwashes which contain sodium lauryl sulfate. For a quick fix, rinse the mouth every 2 to 3 hrs with salt water or apply a wet tea bag to the sore for relief.
