I guess I still need to get acclimated to pipe smoking but this canker is so annoying. How long does this take to go away and get acclimated to smoke

Depends on the cause of the canker sore and how you and your doctor are treating it. Causes range from bad nutrition to trauma.

If you have a good pharmacist, he or she can probably recommend an over-the-counter medicine for this. I think camphor was the old time remedy, and may still be used, but I'd ask at the drugstore/chemist (U.K.). If it persists, see your doctor. I think these can be minor viral infections or a dietary deficiency.

Last year had a canker sore on the roof of my mouth and the local pharmacist suggested G.U.M. Ricinol www.gumbrand.com/gum-rincinol-mouth-rinse-1770r.html
It's a rinse that applies a thin protective coating. It's available at Walmart, Walgreens, CVS...

Too much orange juice or tomatoes and I tend to get one. Something about the acidic foods I guess. I find rinsing with salt water a few times a day helps. I pick up the pipe when I have them.

When you're lucky, a lot of these sore spots resolve themselves. If not, see your pharmacist and if necessary your doctor.

I used to get these when I was a kid quite a bit. Whenever I did, my mom would dip a wet q-tip in some alum and hold it on the sore for about 20 seconds. Hurts like hell(and tastes even worse), but every time they were resolved within a day. I can't say I've ever gotten a canker sore from smoking though. Are you sure it's a canker sore and not a steam burn, maybe from puffin a bit to fast?
