I never had "mouth sores" so to speak. I did for 1-2 weeks after each chemo have a burned tip of tongue feeling, like if you drank something really hot. It impared my taste and was actually painful when eating. I had been using bioten mouthwash, toothpaste & "Magic Mouthwash" prescribed by onc. Nothing worked for the burned tongue feeling.
After my last (yea!) chemo, I decided to try a que-tip of liquid Ambesol on the tip of my tongue. Wow! After a minute of that burning/numbing feeling, my tongue felt great! I can drink coffee and eat without pain.
I wish I had thought of it sooner.
