I REALLY need to know whether I should see a doctor or dentist because right before I got the canker sores I started to break out, then one sore came now another one's coming in. I'm 16 and I want to make sure I have a plausible reason to tell my mom I need to take a visit...

  • If it is for the first time you are getting the break out then you should try to find out the reason. Having one or two canker sore in puberty is normal but if you have a breakout and you are in real pain then you should visit the dentist. Normally the canker sores heals in 7 to 10 days but there can be secondary infections also. More so ever visiting the dentist will confirm the diagnosis of canker sore and he will guide you how to take care of them. for more info on canker sores you can visit the following link..... www.identalhub.com/article_canker-sore-234.aspx
