    Are these mouth sores?

    Hello- I am a week post my 3rd treatment. There are a few sore spots in my mouth... had stuff like that before. No biggy, are they considered mouth sores? Stupid question maybe...

      HearMe Roar,
      They could very well be. If you don't have Miles Solution I would recommend it. Also Walgreens has an item that they sell over the counter called UlcerEase mouthwash. I hope you feel better soon, Carm RN.

      I think so. I'm no health professional so I can only speak from my experience. My mouth sores come like clockwork - chemo is on Friday and then by Sunday I get mouth sores every time. I always inspect my mouth and I can never see any actual sores or anything but my mouth basically burns pretty badly. I use Biotene mouthwash several times a day and they are usually gone by Tuesday or Wednesday.

      possible... have you considered using glutamine as a supplement? it helps prevent those things with each chemo treatment... also helps keep neuropathy side effects to a minimum... consider asking your health care team.

      my mouth sores were horride little things - sooooooo sore! sooooo painful! i had to use the lidocaine mouthwash stuff in order to just teach my class.

      good luck! i hope they heal up quickly!

      I only had the mouth sores once. Once was enough. Very painful until I used the magic mouth wash.
