    Mouth sores from chemotherapy

    My sister-in-law's sister has lung cancer. She was diagnosed earlier and had radiation. It has returned and is undergoing chemotherapy. She has mouth sores that are painful. When I had chemotherapy I remember my mouth being tender, but didn't have sores. What are some things that worked for others.

      Magic Mouthwash also for me.

      I used a mixture of salt and baking soda in water. Ins didn't cover Magic Mouthwash. Luckily, sores weren't too bad. Hope she gets relief.
