Hi Jenna, I'm sorry you are feeling so poorly. Yes mouth sores are very common for us. There are different things that people here use. Your dr. can give you a percription for a mouth rinse that is a nystatin. 1 of them is rinse and spit and another is swish and swollow. There is one folks here call greenlizard. (don't ask me). But they say it works well. My pharmacist said that one of the ingredients is malox. She said just swish it around in your mouth and it will help. You might try that for now until you can get with your dr.
As far as not going to a regular pcp. I disagree. I think it all depends on how sharp your pcp is. Mine is the first one to catch my illness.
I hope you feel better soon
