Mouth sores can be a sign that your white blood cells have dropped. Get labs drawn. For relief of symptoms while discomfort resolves several combinations exist. My favorite: nystatin/maalox/carafate - very soothing. Other include: benadryl/nystatin/maalox - can burn and viscous lidocaine/nystatin/maalox - will numb your entire mouth/tounge.

A natural remedy to help with soothing includes rinsing with aloe vera juice twice a day. Energy moving or auricular acupuncture can also help with symptoms.
