The paste should be applied as soon as possible after noticing the symptoms of an aphthous ulcer and should be used four times daily, preferably following oral hygiene after breakfast, lunch, dinner, and at bedtime. Squeeze a dab of paste approximately ¼ inch (0.5 cm) onto a finger tip. With gentle pressure, dab the paste onto each ulcer in the mouth.
