Yea and it's a *****. I have been using Nystatin and I get some relief. It's generally prescribed for thrush and though I don't have thrush this is the only thing that has helped me. Mike

Audrey had horrible mouth sores.  Lots of people seem to have had a problem with them.  I'm sure Audrey could write a book about everything she took to get rid of them.  She would probably be the best one to talk about this question.

Ask your doctor for "magic mouthwash"!  They should know what it is.  Requires a prescription

Acidophilus pills kept mine from getting sores. Some folks say that yogurt will help too.

Hang in there!

I found Biotene mouthwash and toothpaste helped me out : )  Mine have been pretty mild, fortunately.
