No one's paying me to say this. (But they should.)
One: Rembrandt Toothpaste for Canker Sore Sufferers.
This is for aphthous ulcers, little sores on the inside of the mouth, not cold sores on the outside of the mouth. I've had them all my life, and my last child's life was nearly debilitated by them in grade school. Seriously, she almost had to go to Indiana University to be studied. Why it works: This toothpaste is devoid of sodium laurel sulfate, an ingredient in most products that suds up, including other toothpastes and ... floor cleaners. Since we found this gift from God, I would say our sores have decreased 85% or more. It costs about $6.00.
Two: Bengay patches. I discovered these after the Indy Mini Marathon, where they handed them out for free. There is no offensive odor. You just peel and press, and you have something soothes you for hours. About $7.00 for five of them.
Three: Pantyhose in a can. A co-worker suggested I try this inexpensive Sally Hansen product when I was complaining about white legs that would show in my son's graduation pictures, since I chose to wear a dress. It's called Perfection ... Bare Legs ... Only Better. My co-worker says movie stars swear by it. It goes on a little weird, so follow the directions to a "T," but the upside is, unlike self-tanners, you can wash it off and not have to let the orange fade. It also costs about $6.00.
