When I was younger I remember getting quite a few canker sores.  I'm so sorry your in so much pain.  

When using the salt water, peroxide, or baking soda your not suppose to drink the solution.  The best thing to do is swish the solutions in your mouth and spit it back out in the sink.  The peroxide should be put on a cotton swab, then dab on the sore area.  

Canker sores that are really severe should be treated by the doctor or dentist.  You can ask your parents to make you an appoinment and bring you there.  Usually you should see the doctor or dentist if the canker sores last two weeks or longer.  If it gets to be too bad, you may want to go into the doctor right away.

Most canker sores will heal on their own.  You may want to ask your parents to give you some ibuprofen or tylenol to help with the pain.  They can be very painful.  I hope you feel better soon.  Take care.

Those are painful, but luckily usually short-lived.  RM is right, though, that if it's bad, you may need a doctor or dentist to take a look at it.  There thinks you can buy at the pharmacy for canker sore relief.  Maybe even Anbesol might help a tiny bit.
