Hey guys!

Its been awhile since IV been on due to surgeries and specialists and my daughter.
I hope you're all doing well.
I have a question about mouth sores, how long do they typically last, do they hurt and do they get worse as time goes?
IV had 4 sores in my mouth for a week now and they are so painful, I'm in a small flare up, joint pain fever tired etc. So it makes sense but I want to make sure its not an infection in my mouth due to Methotrexate.

Don't want to call rheumy either cause they're super busy so I come to my lupie friends.
I have pictures but I don't know how to attach them?

Thank you!
Gentle hugs

I get them once and awhile. My sores last for about 7-10 days.
They do get awful sore.
Have you tried rum on a q-tip? Someone told me it was a good solution. I think every four apply it. Some people swish with it.
Since I'm a teatotaler I use canker sore medicine on it.
