Hi guys,
I am a 26 y/o female and I was diagnosed with Lupus in April. I am mostly dealing with swollen glands, bad leg and joint pain and probably the most annoying is constant canker sores in my mouth. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting rid of these?
Thanks so much! xoxox

Hi Ally,

Yes mouth sores are a nasty part of lupus for some of us. For me 3-5 mg of folic acid daily helps keep them away. There are also 2 other Rx's your doctor can give you, one is magic mouthwash which the pharmacist mixes up for you and the other is a dental paste.

I hope you find some relief! Take care

DX: Lupus, Sjogrens, Raynaud's, Hashimoto's and Celiac Disease
RX: Imuran, Plaquenil, Methotrexate, Flexeril, Piroxicam, Levoxyl, Folic Acid, Folgard OS (B12), Vitamin D-50,000 IU, Tramadol (as needed) and magic mouthwash (for mouth sores)
