1) Fast Treatment: I found this to be very painful but very effective. Take a pinch of brown sugar and apply it to the infected area. Repeat two to three times to make sure it stays there and leave it there. Do this after brushing your teeth before going to bed and after breakfast. Brown sugar sucks the acid out allowing it to heal.
2) Fast Treatment: Take a glass of hot water and salt which most of you may already know and add a piece of alum salt rock. In my family we buy alum at the local Indian grocery store and it is a natural antibiotic salt rock which can heal many cuts and wounds. Once you have the hot water and salt, drop the piece of alum in there and gargle with it (do not swallow the water). Repeat this multiple times throughout the day.
3) Pain Relief: It's very hard to eat or drink water so to relieve the pain temporarily I would recommend using Zilactin B. I have used Oragel, Anbesol, Cloraseptic but none of those work anywhere close to Zilactin B.
