    i usually gargle salt water- i can't take that sorta pain- but in any case it does'nt work for me. i constantly get canker sores,especially if i bite my lip. i usually have them for about 3 weeks. i have one right now in fact,but it's healing.

    I feel your pain. Ever since I can remember, it was normal for me to have at least one. Having two at the same time was common. A few times I've had four at the same time! But strangely, I can't think of any time when I've had three. When I got braces in high school, it made it even worse! And eating acidy things and ketchup always turned into writhing torture. It made me angry that it hurt to eat. Fortunately, I seem to be getting them less frequently now than I used to.

    I had a personal cure for nausea that would work on the mornings before school. All I had to do was listen to "Sweat" by Inner Circle ("Alalalalalum...") on the radio in the bus and my nerves would calm down. Too bad it wasn't on every year.

      When I get pimples I put toothpaste on it, and it slowly goes away.

        Pimples-A dab of honey and a band-aid
        Earache-Pinch off the butt of a June bug and squeeze juice into ear. Its gross I know, but this was done to my sister, and my aunts and uncles, and they have never had another earache ever.

          My dad has one cure for everything; MILK. If you have a cough, drink some milk! If you have a sore throat, drink some milk! An ulcer, drink some milk! Upset stomache, MILK! Skin your knee, pour some milk on it! Milk was my dad's Robatussin.

            Sounds really really yucky but I've heard that Cow Manure helps blood to clot.

            I know this guy when he was younger he flipped his bike over a fence into a cow field. Noticed he cut his ear really bad so he put some Cow Manure over it to help it clot.
            It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

              The strangest things my family told me, by far, were the cures for acne. See, my grandma had really bad acne as a teenager, and I started getting it around age 11, and after years of treatment, it isn't gone. (I recently went on Accutane, but I still get mild acne a few months later.)

              So my grandma grew up with all these weird acne treatments because the only things they had back then besides the sun were some soaps and creams (my grandma got skin cancer from all that sun treatment.) So, in the beginning stages of my treatment, she prescribed Phillips stomach medicine (milk of magnesia) all over my face, egg yolks (vitamin A), no chocolate or greasy foods (old wives tale), and some other stuff. None of them made a difference.

              Did anyone else try to make their own cures as a kid? I tried to make my own cure for headaches with wild mint leaves and salt water.

                  Sounds like the windex from my big fat greek wedding.

                      No it didn't. It healed just fine. Still sounds really yucky to do though.

                        So, if you have no cows, can you use human manure?

                              I don't know. Never tried it.
