Chemotherapy: How do I prevent mouth sores? | Norton Cancer Institute

Mary Anderson,Oral Chemotherapy Registered Nurse Clinician, with the Norton Cancer Institute, explains the different types of chemotherapy treatments available and what to expect while going through treatments.

Mouth sores can present themselves after chemotherapy as redness on the inside of your mouth, a white coating on your tongue bleeding gums or trouble swallowing or chewing and having cracks on the corners of your mouth.

There are several things that you can do to prevent mouth sores but even with the best prevention techniques possible you still might get mouth sores so don’t blame yourself if it happens. First of all, you want to use a soft bristle toothbrush. Brush your teeth two to three times a day by even taking your toothbrush and running it under warm water so it softens the bristles even more.

Rinsing your mouth out two to three times a day with a mouth rinse that does not contain alcohol or peroxide. There are many over-the-counter formulas and you can talk to your doctor or your nurse about what’s best for you. Also you can use baking soda by mixing a teaspoon of baking soda in a cup water and rinsing your mouth out two to three times a day with that will also help.

Foods that you might want to avoid would be foods that are spicy, foods that are very acidic or even very salty. Extremely hot beverage should also be avoided. If you do develop sores in your mouth, especially if it’s difficult to eat or chew or swallow, make sure you call your doctor. There are prescription medications that your doctor can prescribe to help these sores get better.

Canker Sores | How To Get Rid Of Canker Sores | Mouth Ulcer Treatment

Canker Sores or Mouth Ulcer. This video is on treatment, causes and home remedies to get rid of canker sores.

The mouth ulcer, also known as canker sores or aphthous ulcers. Can be surprisingly painful but the good news is in this video I’m going to teach you how to treat and prevent it.

WHAT IS A MOUTH ULCER:
Mouth ulcers are common and should clear up on their own within a week or 2. They’re rarely a sign of anything serious but may be uncomfortable to live with.

Mouth ulcers are usually red or yellow and appear inside the mouth, on the cheeks or lips. Ulcers can also appear on the tongue. You may have more than one ulcer at a time and they can change in size.

Mouth ulcers aren’t contagious and shouldn’t be confused with cold sores. Cold sores appear on the lips or around the mouth and often begin with a tingling, itching or burning sensation.

If you have several mouth ulcers please visit your doctor if you have any of the following additional symptoms, this can be a symptom of:

• Hand, foot and mouth disease, which also causes a rash on the hands and feet
• Oral lichen planus, which causes a white, lacy pattern inside the cheeks

For pictures and more information on mouth ulcers please visit:
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/mouth-ulcers/

MOUTH ULCER CAUSES:
Various factors have been suggested to precipitate recurrent aphthous ulcers including:

• Oral trauma
• Anxiety or stress
• Certain foods (including chocolate, coffee, peanuts, and gluten-containing products)
• Stopping smoking
• Hormonal changes related to the menstrual cycle
• Iron or Vitamin B12 deficiencies
• A long-term condition – such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), coeliac disease or Behçet’s disease
• Medications – including some NSAIDs, beta-blockers or nicorandil

MOUTH ULCER TREATMENTS:
Mouth ulcers need time to heal and there is no quick fix.

A pharmacist can recommend a treatment to speed up healing, prevent infection or reduce pain, for example:

• Steroid lozenges these can be quite effective at reducing the pain and may even help ulcers heal more quickly.

• Chlorhexidine mouthwash this isn’t quite as effective at reducing the pain however it may help mouth ulcers health more quickly and prevent them from becoming infected.

Chlorhexidine mouthwash causes brown staining on the surface of teeth if used for 4 weeks or longer. This is a type of staining that comes off after scaling and polishing by a dental professional. For more information on this mouthwash please read the information leaflet and speak to your pharmacist.

Whether you use steroid lozenges or chlorhexidine mouthwash for best results it’s always best to start in the early stages of the ulcer that way it has the best chance of preventing the ulcer from developing and speed up the healing process.

MOUT ULCER PAIN RELIEF:
The next treatments don’t really prevent an ulcer from fully developing but are more useful for pain relief. This includes soothing protective pastes, paracetamol, ibuprofen, numbing spray or mouthwashes containing benzydamine and salt water mouthwashes.

To make a salt water mouthwash:
Add one teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and rinse gently around mouth. Remember to spit the water out, It can be done at least four times a day for four to five days.

With all medication always read the information leaflet and speak to your pharmacist to make sure you are suitable to take it.

WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR OR DENTIST:
If your mouth ulcer,
• Lasts longer than 3 weeks
• Keeps coming back
• Becomes more painful and red – this may be a sign of an infection

Although most mouth ulcers are harmless, a long-lasting mouth ulcer is sometimes a sign of mouth cancer. It’s best to get it checked.

Cold Sores | How To Treat A Cold Sore | How To Prevent Cold Sores | How To Get Rid Cold Sore (2018)

How To Treat Cold Sores | How To Stop Getting Cold Sores | How To Prevent A Cold Sore When You Feel It Coming | Cold Sore Treatments

Hey guys! This weeks video is about cold sores, how to prevent them and how to try and treat them.

I couldn’t find any information to clinically prove the effectiveness of some cold sore remedies seen online like distilled vinegar, witch hazel and alcohol, so I can’t recommend them. But feel free to leave a comment if you’ve tried them to let us know how effective they were.

WHAT ARE COLD SORES:
About 1 in 5 people in the UK have recurring cold sores. Cold sores usually resolve on their own without treatment in 7-10 days.

Cold sores, also known as fever blisters or oral herpes, are very common. They can be easy to recognise as they usually appear as red bumps or blisters around the lips and mouth.

Cold sores are caused by herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1), the oral form of the virus. In fact, 67% of the world population under age 50 has HSV-1 because it is so contagious Once you are infected, the virus never leaves your body. Most people aren’t exactly sure when they first encountered the virus. It’s usually contracted in early childhood where it may not appear as a visible cold sore.

HOW DO COLD SORES SPREAD:
The oral herpes virus is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact. It is even contagious when you can’t see a cold sore. Most people first contract the cold sore virus (HSV-1) when they are very young, usually by skin-to-skin contact with an adult carrying the virus. The virus can spread in various ways: through kissing, or by sharing objects like toothbrushes, water bottles, drinking glasses, and silverware. It is also possible to spread the virus from the mouth to the genitals, eyes, and other parts of the body.

COLD SORE TRIGGERS WHICH MAY BE PREVENTED:
Not everyones cold sores are triggered by the same thing, but these triggers are the ones which could be avoided to prevent a cold sore attack.

• Stress can wear down your immune system, giving that dormant cold sore a chance to launch a sneak attack. Instead, when you feel stressed, breathe deeply and relax. Here’s a look at some relaxation techniques that can help you take it easy -https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/stress-anxiety-depression/understanding-stress/

• Being tired can make you vulnerable to cold sores. Like stress and illness, fatigue can zap your immune system, making you easy prey for a cold sore outbreak. Getting rest is key. Link to my video to help you get a better night sleep – https://youtu.be/m_ZHgD5rVPU

• If you find that sunlight triggers your cold sores, try using sunscreen lip balm (SPF 15 or more) before going out into bright sunlight. This has been found to prevent some bouts of cold sores in some people. Do not share lip balms with other people if you have cold sores.

• Prevent chapped lips in the cold by using a hydrating lip balm.

COLD SORE TREATMENT:
Aciclovir can be bought over-the-counter (OTC) at pharmacies. This does not kill the virus but prevents the virus from multiplying. It has little effect on existing blisters but may prevent them from becoming worse.

The cream may provide some protection against cold sores caused by sunlight if it is used before exposure. If you use an antiviral cream as soon as symptoms start then the cold sore may not last as long as usual and may be less severe. There is debate as to how well the cream works.

WHEN TO SEE YOUR GP:
You should see your GP if you are unsure of the diagnosis, or if the cold sores are not resolving after a week or so. If you have a poor immune system (you are an immunocompromised person) and develop possible cold sores, you should see your GP. You may need tests to confirm the virus, and/or oral antiviral medicines. For full list please visit: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/cold-sores/

Cold Sore | How To Get Rid Of Cold Sores Fever Blisters Overnight

Cold Sore | Cold sores and fever blisters are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). This virus is passed from person to person by saliva (either directly, or by drinking from the same glass or cup) or by skin contact. Cold sores usually appear as clusters of tiny blisters on the lip.

Treatment:
Treatment may include skin creams, ointments, or sometimes pills. Treatment may get rid of the cold sores only 1 to 2 days faster, but it can also help ease painful blisters or other uncomfortable symptoms. The herpes simplex virus that causes cold sores can’t be cured.
