Mouth sores
Mar 16, 2004
Just curious to know if anyone else has gotten canker-type sores in their mouth from the treatment? Last week, I started getting these PAINFUL sores on the inside of my lower lip, and 3 days ago I popped up with one on THE LIP. Sheesh! I feel like this is turning me into a herpes monster! Yuck! :p

yeah...I'm getting some here and there also. It makes for painful eating at times but they generally go away in about 7 days.

I got a rx for a "swish" from a doctor. It looked like about the same as peptol bismal. It helped ALOT!

Hi Wes, Twinangel, & Honey,

Thanks for the replies, guys! Nice to know this is all part of the process, and NOT something else to deal with! :rolleyes:

Yeah, me too! It was AWFUL :yawn:
I tried sage tea (do you understand? I do not speak english well, and names of the herbs is always a problem - but in my dictionary is SAGE or SALVIA)

You should drink small amounts 10 - 20 times a day - to keep it in contact with the sore tissue.

Bye

Hi Petr,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, your English is just fine! Sage is correct. I have not used the tea, but have been using a tincture of black walnut hulls, just applying with a cotton ball several times a day. It has worked well, though tastes horrid if you get too much on!

If this happens again, I will try the sage tea. Thanks for the suggestion,

I still would still try peptol bismal as a swish.

Oh, Wes,

Somehow I missed this! What does the peptol bismal do? Hmmmmmmm, never heard of bismuth in connection with canker sores, herpes, or mouth sores in general. Can you direct me to something to read about this? I'd love to know if there's a precedence for this?

Anyhoo, thanks for the suggestion! If this pops up again, I will DEFINITELY give it a try. It HAS to taste better than the walnut hulls, ya know? :D

When I was treating, I was diagnosed with strep. The doctor prescribed a "swish" for my mouth and it looked and tasted just like peptol bismal. I read the ingredients and they were almost identical.

i'm just guessing, but, almost every chemical reaction is between acids and bases. I guess what was burning in my mouth was an acid by-product of something. The "swish" neutralized the acid. The antibiotics took care of the strep itself.

Thanks, Wes.

The acid thing makes alot of sense. If they(sores) come back again, I'll give the pepto a try!
