Quantum CANKER CARE+ - Canker sores are shallow, painful sores on the inside of the lips, the inside of the cheeks, or on the gums. They begin as small, reddish swellings. Then they burst, and the ruptured sores are covered with a white or yellow membrane. The edges of the sores are still red, and look like a painful red halo. Without a canker sore remedy, canker sores (medically: aphthous ulcers) heal in 2 to 3 weeks. Canker sores are most prevalent among teenagers and people in their twenties. Nobody knows for sure what causes canker sores, although Vitamin B12 deficiency, Iron deficiency and food allergies are all suspected.
