Thank you for your question. We do not recommend using home remedies if you have a upper respiratory tract infection and canker sore. Bacteria from this infection can actually infect the canker sore making it worse. We recommend that you see your doctor to have both illnesses examined and start a course of antibiotics to treat your illness. Please be guided accordingly.
