My onconlogist gave me a mouthwash that contained lanocaine, which made my mouth numb. I did not use it much for the same reason.
I also was coughing up large amounts of phlegm. My nurse practitioner suggested rinsing with Alkalol, which is available over the counter. She also suggested Robitussion expectorant or a generic egual. Both of these helped without the numbing feeling. However, I'd ask your doctor prior to trying these.
