Lidocaine for mouth sores

Common Questions and Answers about Lidocaine for mouth sores

lidoderm

Go to your Dr and get a prescription for MAGIC MOUTHWASH. It works. For me it definitely lessened the severity of the mouth sores. It has Lidocaine, Benadryl and malox in it. That is the basic stuff. It can also be mixed with other things like something to get rid of yeast problems (forgot the name) if they develop.
Talk to your doctor about a prescription for lidocaine mouthwash. It can ease discomfort from mouth sores. Try to stay away from: foods that are spicy, salty, acidic, or high in citrus content (such as oranges and grapefruits) rough food like dry toast, granola, and pretzels chili powder, cloves, curry, hot sauces, nutmeg, and pepper carbonated beverages (such as colas) http://www.hepatitis.va.gov/patient/treat/side-effects-single-page.

Posting for my Mom...she is in between round 2 &3 with doxil and has terrible mouth and back throat sores. So bad she cannot swallow anything but chicken broth, going on day three. She does backing soda gargle and that relieves for a bit. Is there anything that can be used to get rid of these sores.
I tried biotene for dry mouth, didn't help much.If you get the sores in the corners of your mouth use monistat. I was shocked when my dentist asked me if I had any. I said that end is fine. LOL He said you get a yeast infection in the corners of your mouth. It helped.Any time I ate any thing spicey or even pizza my mouth burned bad. Dentist said it is burning mouth syndrome. What next??????? None of my sx including this didn't start til; 10 wks. Your gums might be sore also.
I have had mouth sores also. inside is one thing, outside I have found that berts bees has an ointment(lip saver) that clears up the corner cracks in about 24 hours.
I just got a mouth ulcer today. I have magic mouth it helps. For the sores in corner of mouth, use anti-fungal like monistat. I am G2 24 shots left. I also have the bad taste. Looks like alot of us are the same.
For a different approach, while on treatment I also got mouth sores and used Aloe Juice as a swish and swallow. It worked for the sores and also made my stomach feel better.
I have been off the riba for a week due to horrible mouth sores. Today they put me back on at one third the dose, one pill twice a day. If it gets worse again, I have to stop and take "famvir" before I restart the riba. Wish me lots of spit, ok?

Any good ideas on how to help with mouth sores? This is the second time he has gotten them, and this time they are bothering him much more because they are on the inside of his gum right in front of his bottom teeth and he has to talk all day at work. We've been using 1/4 t of seasalt in 1 c of water for him to hold in his mouth to soak them, but are there any better ideas out there? I know he can't use anything with alcohol in it (chloraseptic, etc...
Stir, swish, spit. It's painful. I have these nasty sores on the corners of my mouth. Real attractive... I'm taking B complex to see if it'll help. I look like the Joker from Batman. Haha!
Kelle Hang in there, I had to take off from work for a week because of the mouth sores. I used lidocaine, biotine and script that is antibiotic (it doesnt work) but slowly it got better, My doctor actually was going to stop the treatment and i said NO. Try and eat soft, cold things, ice cream, pudding, yogurt etc. The cracks are always there,before bed i put on dab of neosporine, it helps somewhat. hang in there! I know how bad they hurt!
In the forty weeks+ I've followed this forum many people have mentioned magic mouthwash. I have found vanilla yogurt to be helpful with my mouth sores. They were only bad for me in the first couple of months of tx.I'm at week 40 of 48.Good luck.
I didn't really see a related post about this but I've gotten a couple that are causing me pain and I know there is no cure to get rid of them faster, but I was wondering if anyone knew of ways to help at least relieve the pain of them. I've been using the salt water mouth wash at least once-twice a day for the past couple days... it only helps a little. And that baking soda/water into a paste thing did not work... it burned like all hell to be honest...
Any help would be appreciated. My 11 year old has a prescription for lidocaine/antac/diphenhis rinse for his cold sores. Can I try it?
And for the really bothersome sores you can get anbesol- it will numb it.
I also had the mouth sores and was given Clotrimazole (Rx), generic for Mycelex. Worked great!
lol You are so right about clearing up one thing just in time for another side to roll in. I hated the mouth sores and had the first few weeks.
I really don't think pouring hydrogen peroxide on your tongue can be a good idea! But, in answer to your question, over the past 11 months of TX I've read dozens of posts from TX'ers with mouth sores. A lot of people recommend 'Magic Mouth Wash." (Will someone please chime in and post what that is?) I've not suffered from inner mouth sores but have had really irritating corner-of-the mouth cracking that sometimes prevented me from brushing my teeth or even eating much. My Dr.
It's a combination of benedryl liquid, maalox and lidocaine, you swish it over the sores and it numbs and also heals them up faster. But you need to see a dentist or doctor for that. There are pastes in the dental isles for cankor sores that you could use to cover the sore and numb it, Canka makes one and I'm sure there are others.
I have severe mouth sores and was given Mycelex. Cleared it up in about 8 days. I use Biotene mouthwash and toothpaste for dry mouth syndrome. It's important to drink lots of water too. If the mouth gets too dry it changes the pH and all kinds of funky things grow.
Sorry you are feeling sick! I too have been using it and find that it also improves taste of food! Kaiser prescribed it to me.
I bought Biotene toothpaste and mouthwash, which is specifically for dry mouth and is very gentle. I can't say it really helps that much with dry mouth, but it doesn't burn like ordinary toothpaste and alcohol based mouthwash.
recommended a weak salt/soda solution like they sometimes use for chemo patients and when all else failed, an RX of Magic Mouthwash that totally numbs the mouth. I feel for you - it was one of my worst sides - I couldn't hardly talk for my tongue touching my teeth. I also ate LOTS of cold unsweetened applesauce that helped make both the nausea and mouth sores a little more bearable.
Canker Sores Recurrent canker sores afflict about 20 percent of the general population. The medical term for the sores is aphthous stomatitis. Canker sores are usually found on the movable parts of the mouth such as the tongue or the inside linings of the lips and cheeks. They begin as small oval or round reddish swellings, which usually burst within a day. The ruptured sores are covered by a thin white or yellow membrane and edged by a red halo. Generally, they heal within 2 weeks.
) The texture is back to normal, though - it got very wirey and straight, too. As for the mouth sores in the corners of your mouth - I had them, too and they weren't yeast or cold sores. I still think that they were from not drinking enough water but who knows? I didn't use anything to get rid of them, but I used the "magic mouthwash" mentioned above for when my the inside of my mouth became raw and painful.
What is the best OTC treatment for dry mouth and especially sore and painful tongue caused by dry mouth. Biotene samples are not giving me the relief I need and neither is saliva subsitute. They only last less than a minute. I have been constantly chewing bubble gum because I don't know what else to do but that is making my tongue more raw and sore and causing minor mouth sores. I feel I am becoming addicted to bubble gum just to get relief and in reality it only helps while I am chewing it.
Stan first of all welcome to the family. Don't worry about the posting two times. There are alot of new people here lately and the basic guidelines haven't been posted in a while now. Anyways- This is my second time on tx and never had any problems with my mouth at all till about a month ago except dry mouth at night. Now the tip of my tounge is SO sensitive, I can't have any spicy foods at all and anything to sugary or salty will hurt it. I have no other problems with mouth sores or anything.
