A new prescription medication is now available to dentists and physicians to provide help to millions of canker sore sufferers in the U.S. Aphthasol (amlexanox oral paste, 5%), the first and only prescription medication indicated specifically for the treatment of canker sores, has been approved in patients with normal immune systems. Aphthasol is available in 5 gram tubes.

Aphthasol was proven safe and effective when used as directed in four clinical trials with more than 1,300 patients. The most common adverse effects, as reported by 1-2% of patients, were transient pain, burning, and/or stinging sensations at the site of application. Clinical data confirms that best results from Aphthasol occur with earliest possible use.
