People undergoing chemotherapy often have to deal with mouth sores, caused by an inflammatory response to the treatment.
The sores don’t always last for the full duration of the treatment, but you can prevent them or help them heal quicker by regularly using a good mouth wash, or one made at home using bicarbonate of soda and water (1 tablespoon of bicarb to 4 cups of water).
Also look for pure L-Glutamine powder at your pharmacy, which has been shown to assist and support the body during chemo.
