Dear Tinktank
Shame! Try Kenalog in Orobase ointment on the sores - thick! You can use it inside your mouth too. If you can't eat try Ensure supplements - it is like a powder you mix with milk or water to make a meal replacement milkshake - you can find this at Pick and Pay/Checkers Hypermarket etc

I started last week with the same sore in my mouth, it is realy bad. There is no medicine for this because i drink Moxypen and my son 5 is drinking spectrasone.and nothing is making it bettter. My dogter of 2 has it for 4 weeks, and was terrible.

I am using now TCP. That realy makes it better.
Try TCP.
