    Momof4 - after my last chemo (in March) my mouth developed such sores that I couldn't do much except whimper. The doctor can prescribe something called "Magic Mouthwash", which helps to numb the pain. I lived on Jello, applesauce and 7/11 Slurpies (great!) for about ten days. Upside --I lost weight! Ask your doctor for the magic mouthwash.

    My nurses have me rinsing w/Baking Soda and Salt water 5 times a day. So far it has prevented getting mouth sores. Once you get rid of them try doing this everyday 5-6 times a day. It really has helped me.

    momof4, my friend who is just about to start her second treatment had terrible sores after the first one. The doctor gave her a mouthwash which is some combination of benadryl and maalox. Ask your doctor. Hugs

    Agree with the others - magic mouthwash or Diflucan will help and you may be able to prevent them next time. Take care Diane
