What Is The Best Way To Get Relief From Pain Caused By Mouth Sores?

My daughter has horrible mouth sores caused from methotrexate. How can we treat these and avoid them in the future?

I had horrible mouthsores when on chemo in hospital. I used baking soda mixed in warm water as a mouthwash. My doctor ended up prescribing a medicine to apply directly to the sores with a swab, but I think the baking soda worked better.

I found baking soda for tooth paste helped along with a water pick and diluted mouthwash helped. Weirdly, drinking Ensure helped a lot. It helped to keep my weight up and coated my mouth. Any tooth paste with mint caused blisters. Hang in there you get used to it.
