Gargling on Soluble Aspirin

3 messages in this subject.

I find that gargling with soluble aspirin is better than with salt solution. I use it about 4 or 5 times a day. Yes, toothpastes are a nuisance! My mouth is sensitive to some of them. Garlic and raw onion can be strong irritants for the throat Also, prescribed medication can cause problems. A very dry mouth is bad for the throat as well as for teeth. I am trying MANUKA HONEY from the spoon. You only need a tiny amount. i use about 1/8 of a teaspoon last thing at night.

In reply to your comments regarding soluable aspirin, yes, I whole-heartily agree that this sometimes can be the most effect pain relief treatment - and as you point out - also sometimes the cheapest. I do this alot when I am suffering with ulcers on the tounge/throat and I do find that it brings relief fairly quickly. I canít say I have noticed that they clear up any quicker, but I do think soluable aspirin is very under-rated when it comes to mouth ulcers.

However- most soluable aspirin contains SLS - Sodium Laurel Suplphate - which is something found in most toothpastes (the foaming agent). This is believed to perhaps in some people actually trigger ulcers and indeed many people report that by using SLS free toothpaste that they have found a reduction in their ulcers. Personally, I kind of think, for me that it *may* help a little but is not the cause. I think itís worth mentioning the SLS theory here as sometimes it could mean that taking soluble aspirin *could* be doing more harm than good - But - I do take your point about how effective it is and must admit - SLS or no SLS - I still take it when needs be.

I suffer once or twice a year from terrible cluster ulcers at the sides of the throat (ouch!) I think it caused mostly by Coke/Diet Coke. However, I find that gargling on solubul aspirin with luke warm water helps clear up the ulcers faster than anything else. Simply buy some Aspirin tablets which are very cheap (especially in comparision with other ulcer íícuresíí) put 3 or 4 in a cup and add some warm water, use a spoon and mix them around to help them dissolve, then gargle a couple of times. The taste is a bit nasty but surely better than the ulcers??? Let me know if you find this works or already do this as I find no mention of this method on the website. Remember, Aspirin is still an unknown entity, nobody knows how or why it works and it would not be allowed for sale or use if it was discovered today.
