Hi, I am in my second treatment of taxotere and cytoxin. I got a sore mouth in the first treatment. But this time it is horrible. So far no open sores, but difficult to eat. Any suggestions?

    Hi Barbara....yes those are painful. Has your Onc told you about magic mouthwash? It's prescribed for mouth sore from having chemo. It has Several different things that help heal the sores. It's really helped me!

    I read about a baking soda and water rinse. It was also suggested to eat things like yogurt, broth, toast and stay away from sodas and acidic drinks. I start my first round of cytoxin and taxotere tomorrow.

      Good luck to you Lori! I had breast cancer 10 years ago and that was cured. Hoping for the same outcome this time. More side effects, most manageable, just the sore mouth thing.

    My nurse has me eat ice cubes and icees for the entire hour while I'm receiving cytoxin. They have found that it decreases the severity and even the likelihood of sores. It has something to do with keeping your mouth as cold as possible. It has worked wonders for me. This way you are preventing them instead of treating them. Hope this helps! :)

    Please try biotene mouthwash and baking soda rinses. Rinse your mouth after every meal and don't use mouthwash with alcohol

    Biotene and the Rx is best. The Rx is made with peptobismal and lidocaine which coats the mouth and numbs the sore areas. Biotene comes in a rinse, gel, toothpaste or gum. Baking soda is harsh and will dry the mouth which you do not want. Biotene will stimulate the salivary glands which will help with healing.
