Two questions

What's the deal with support points and how do you treat mouth blisters/canker sores?

FYI--this is not how I envisioned my first year of my 30s.

If you have a dentist you go to regularly, they have a mouth wash that can prescribe you that will help with the mouth sores. My husband got that pretty early on in his chemo treatment. Now, he has no problems with them.

I don't have any personal experience with the mouth sores yet but my chemo survivors guide recommends rinsing your mouth out with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda mixed into 1/2 cup of water. It says "the baking soda solution cleans, promotes healing, and lowers the acidity in your mouth" and that it is especially helpful after vomiting. I hope this helps.

I guess the support points are just a way to see how active people are on the forums.

Go get Biotene mouth wash at the store. It helps with the soares.

FYI, the book Ryan is referencing is (I think), "The Chemotherapy Survival Guide", which includes a great chapter on maintaining good nutrition by Tinrin Chew, one of only a couple hundred oncology nutritionists certified by the ADA in the US.
