Why Do Canker Sores Hurt?

Canker sores hurt due to the nerve endings that are exposed when the protective lining of the mouth is breached. The sores themselves are essentially breaks or tears in the mucous membrane inside the mouth. When you eat, drink, or even speak, you're irritating these exposed nerve endings, causing a sharp, stinging pain. Inflammatory mediators like histamine are also released at the site of the sore, making the area more sensitive and painful.

What Causes Canker Sores?

The precise cause of canker sores is still not entirely understood. However, several factors have been identified that may contribute to the formation of these painful ulcers:

● Stress or emotional upheaval
● Hormonal imbalances
● Food sensitivities, particularly to acidic or spicy foods
● Vitamin deficiencies
● Oral injuries from biting the cheek or inner lip
● Certain dental products containing sodium lauryl sulfate
