Uses

What is Canker Cover used for?

How should I take Canker Cover?

Read the directions on the packaging for complete information. Check the label and expiration date.

After washing and drying your hands, place one tablet on your finger with the white side facing up. Place the tablet on top of the canker sore and hold it in place for 10 seconds. The tablet will slowly form a gel-like cover then dissolve hours later.
