Mouth Sores?????

I am in week 5 of triple TX with INCIVEK, Riba and Peg, yesterday I starting having sores inside my mouth and in the corners of my lips.  Today I noticed a few sores on the side of my tongue.  Has this happened to anyone else???  If so what did you do to treat it??

It cost me 300.00 at the emergency room one night for the er doc to tell me milk of magnesia will numb the pain until they go away. Works for toothaches as well. Just dont drink it, unless you need a good clear out, just swish and spit several times a day. worth a shot..anne

Yes my BF got them.  He tried the mouthwash unsuccessfully.  They go away by themselves.

Thanks all!!  I have been using just blistex for the corners of my mouth and I have been gargling with salt water a few times a day.  It appears to be helping, but I will talk to the doc and see if I can get some of that magic mouth wash...........

Yes it happened to me and doc said it was the interferon. She proscribed a paste thtbis both an anti inflammatory with a numbing agent, but I never filled it because they went away using gly ozone over the counter

I get em too. They look like canker sores to me. I tried something to numb some of the worst ones but it only numbed my teeth, gums and tongue and the darn sore still hurt. Good luck with them.

Not all that uncommon on tx...... Ask your doctor about a RX for magic mouthwash, won't cure it but should numb it..... Good luck
