When you bite the inside of your cheek or lip it really hurts, and depending on where the bite is, you may continue to re-bite it so that it won’t heal.
Well, years ago, someone told me to apply sugar to a spot like that to heal it, and it works.
I bit the inside of my lip on Friday and, as often happens, I then bit it several more times because of the swelling. So over the weekend, three or four times a day I dampened my finger, pressed it into sugar and then put my sugared finger right on the spot and held it there for about a minute. And today it is almost completely healed.
This works but I’m not so sure it would work if it was something like say, anchovies you had to apply. Because I’m pretty sure I would rather have a sore mouth than have to apply anchovies to the inside of my mouth.
So I’m very thankful sugar is what works — sweet success.
