People who experience canker sores on a regular basis, can have them appear 3 to 4 times a year and they typically first appear between the ages of 10 and 20. A canker sore on the tongue can typically last around a week in duration. If you have a canker sore on your tongue, it is best to avoid eating acidic foods, such as fruits and vegetables, as the acids can make the canker sore worse. Another common cause of canker sores on the tongue is dental or orthotic work that may rub on the tongue and cause one of these painful mouth sores.
I just wanted to share my story, and hopefully will help someone. I religiously drank Bigelow Earl Grey tea from the age of 15. I suffered from canker sores from childhood, but around the same age, my canker sores increased. Doctors attributed the increased sores to puberty. They would last for 2 weeks+ and be so large or so many that I would fake "no voice" so I wouldn't have to speak, because it would be so painful. Finally at age 34, I decided to eliminate sugar from my diet and my tea drinking ceased, as did my canker sores. Eventually I returned to sugar and drinking tea and the sores returned. It took several times back and forth before I realized that it might be the bergamont oil in the tea that might be an irritant. I can drink other Bigelow black teas without issue. I can still get a canker sore from trauma, if I bite my lip, but it only lasts a few days and does not cause as much pain.
