In brief: Mucositis

You have mucositis from IMRT.
Some easy remedies include chewing ice chips, chewing sugarless gum, or sucking tart sugarfree candy. If these do not work there are artificial saliva products that your physician can prescribe for you or some over-the-counter products are available such as enzyme based Oral Balance,Biotene, etc. See your radiation oncologist for suggestions.
