"Canker sores" are NOT caused by the herpes virus; "cold sores" are. It's an autoimmune function. Anything that boosts the immune system will help, the Bs will help the skin knit back together.

SLS and artificial cinnamon flavoring have been linked to them, also.

If she's had them constantly for a month, something deeper may be going on and she should be checked by her dentist. MDs know little about the mouth, imo.

If it's true "canker sores", the official term is "recurrent aphthous stomatitis", you could Google.
