Sore gum and tongue are painful and sometimes could hinder you from eating or drinking properly depending on how worse the sore is.
Sometimes it appears on the lips appearing as a white circular-shape as shown in the picture below.

It is called Canker Sores (Aphthous Stomatitis) defined as a form of ulcers on the mucous membrane of the mouth. (Yah, yah. Let’s skip the technical details.)
So the T-Cell in the immune system…(gah! please discuss like a normal person.)
The method of gargling warm water and a salt would take weeks for the canker sore to heal. But what I’ve tried only took 30 seconds. After that, the sore closes and the pain goes away.
Buy Canker Mouth Sore Solution on local stores.
Get a cotton swab.
Dip the cotton into the solution
This is an important step. Expose the sore area of your mouth and place the cotton swab (the tip containing the solution of course) into the affected area.
Hold it for 20 seconds.
I will warn you ahead that it will be painful. But don’t worry because it’s a “bearable” pain. (If you accidentally hit your thumb with a hammer, that’s “bearable” pain. Or if a bear hugs you, that’s a “bearable” pain too.)
Throw away the cotton swab, and immediately gargle some water.
This will immediately take away the solution from your mouth.
During this step, you will notice a slight sensation of your tooth similar to that when you drink soft-drinks (i.e. Coke, or Pepsi). Why? because the Canker solution and those soft-drinks both contain the same thing: Acid! (A reason why you shouldn’t drink too much soft-drinks)
After gargling, you will notice the immediate diminish of pain from the sore. And if you touch your sore with your tongue, you will notice that the sore is now close.
