Thrush is a complaint that is often experienced by many people. Thrush is a wound / inflammation in the mouth, often found in the mouth wall, tongue and gums. You do not need to worry, because the most common causes of canker sores are decreased immunity / immune system, lack of vitamin B or C, bacterial infections in the mouth, and trauma to the mouth such as being accidentally bitten so that most thrush can heal by itself
Polyhexamethylene Biguanide (PHMB) is an antiseptic that has been widely used in medicine to prevent the growth of germs that cause infection in wounds. If someone suffering from canker sores, it is not recommended to use antiseptics containing PHMB, because these substances cannot restore or repair the injured skin tissue, especially in the lining of the oral mucosa. PHMB is a type of antiseptic that cannot trigger apoptosis (deadly) of cells in ulcer sores. It is also supported that there is not enough evidence to discuss the related PHMB for the treatment of thrush.
Based on research, it is mentioned that PHMB can reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth and reduce the risk of plaque on teeth. Therefore, some mouthwash products / mouthwash contained PHMB in it.
Give canker sores that are suitable for your condition. Most canker sores that can heal by themselves without any treatment interventions.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
