Yes, I used to use alum, when I was in India. How do you get it in the US?

at the grocery store in the spice section. it is a pickling agent.
I just bought some to try- i have a sore on the underside of my tongue that keeps hitting my bottom teeth. OUCH. it hasn't worked yet, but hopefully it will feel better soon.

Can any one tell me what the allum powerder does for u when used for shaving. let me know. Does it work, and how long have u had to use the treatment.

I think alum (aluminum, or aluminium, sulfate) cauterizes tissue, destroys nerve endings and stops bleeding. As a dental site says in the case of mouth ulcers, cauterization replaces a sore that hurts with a sore that doesn't hurt.

My grandfather was a pharmacist and I grew up knowing that this was the treatment for mouth ulcers. We had a little bottle of alum powder and would dip the end of a Q-tip in the powder and apply right to the ulcer. It would burn at first but then relieve the constant pain. I havenít had one in many years so I was just looking back to see what I could find on the Internet. Sure enough, the treatment is still floating around!
