    Just interested to see if anyone has any suggestion on treating the issues with sore in mouth and throat and continued mucus in throat. We have used several rinses but are still suffering with this issue

      Hello, and welcome to the site! I had issues with sores, swelling, mucos, couldn't swallow, etc. I used the miracle mouthwash, and another one, don't remember the name of it, it was thicker and stronger. It numbed the mouth and throat so I could swallow.

      Ask about magic mouth wash my husband uses it and it worked great .. After 35 treatments he only had sores a couple of times and the wash took them away fast, he has cancer of the throat so the radiation was right there. We know the wash is fairly new and expensive but were told if our insurance did not cover it the company would give it free, I think mur guard is the name of it ... But nick nameis magic mouthwash due to how well it works for radiation mouth sores. Hope this helps
