Post Treatment Mouth Swish/Gargle

Good afternoon,  husband is 4 weeks post treatment.  All mouth sores are gone. Taste buds are slowly waking up. How long should he continue the salt/baking soda/water rinse?   He's also still taking Glutamine to finish out this bottle of powder. 

Thanks as always.

    today or tomorrow?


    For something like this I do it till I feel I can go without.  If you quit and you feel like you are stepping backwards, then start up again.  There isn’t a definite timeline like when your taking penicillin.

    Sounds like you are well on your way.  Keep drinking water.

    3 months and still rinsing

    I am 3 months post and will still periodically rinse with salt/baking soda solution.  Not necessarily for mouth sores but to help loosen lingering mucous. As Matt says, continue to use what helps until you feel comfortable without it.
