Has anyone tried this for relieving mouth sores and how effective was it? Where did you buy it, are there different types? How do you use it, is it mixed with water? Any other ideas besides salt and soda rinses, have been drinking a lot of oloe vera juice. No sores yet at the end of week two but I hope to stay ahead of them and be ready.

Terri, there has been several threads about manuka honey. Try typing manuka honey into the search bar near the top right. You will easily find all the answers to your questions about it.

At week 2, its a little early to have sores. I hope you continue to not get them as they can be very painful. Best wishes with your treatments.

Terrib - Whatever else you may try I recommend you get your doc to prescribe you some viscous lidocaine. I found it was the only thing that numbed my mouth enough even for me to drink liquids.

My thoughts are with you. This is a tough treatment, but you'll get through it!
