How to Treat Mouth Sores from Chemo Treatment

There is quite possibly nothing more sore than the open lesions that can occur in your mouth while undergoing chemotherapy. Oh, they hurt. You can tell I speak from experience, and I learned very quickly what to do to keep them away, and I share all of that information (and more!) in this video.

The reason these mouth sores occur is because the chemotherapy drugs are targeting all rapidly dividing cells in the body, and that (unfortunately) includes the mucosa of the inside of the mouth, all the way down to the stomach. These cells are busy – they divide approximately every 24 hours and are constantly being shed.

The best course of action to take is to begin what is recommended in this video BEFORE you even start chemotherapy so that you keep all of this from happening, because once they occur, these mouth sores can be very difficult to heal up again. In hurts when you eat, when you drink anything hot and even (depending on its location) hurts to talk. 

If you are looking to get rid of a mouth sore or two that have already occurred, worry not – this will definitely speed up the process.

Hi I’m Marnie Clark, breast cancer survivor turned coach. I have 20 years of experience in natural medicine.  In 2004/05 I battled breast cancer myself. You can see more about my journey on my page Breast Cancer Diary.

So it is my duty to help you unconfuse and untangle all that information, and find what works for YOU.
