Topic: Stomatitis

Hello everyone ~

My dad had started Xeloda last Saturday, and stopped yesterday due to the severe pain in his throat and tongue. Was prescribed special mouthwash that helps numb the area, crossing fingers that this will be effective as he isn't really eating because of the pain. Drinking Kefir seems to help soothe a bit, so that's been our go-to...

Just wondering if anyone has found anything else that may useful in relieving the pain from stomatitis?

Thanks!
Lourdes

Hi Lourde,

I just googled and found this www.chemocare.com has information on stomatitis and lots of useful informations. 
Hope your dad feels better soon.

Lourdes...I don't recall any previous postings on stomatitis however; we had numerous postings regarding oral mucositis (mouth sores) caused by chemotherapy treatments.  For this a solution called  Magic Mouthwash had been effective.  I believe that there are pre-mixed versions such as (First-Mouthwash BLM, First-BXN Mouthwash) but often times the physician will write a presciption which then is filled by the pharmacyst.
Generally we have seen people respond quickly to treatments.  I wish the same for your Dad.
Hugs,
Marion
