dbab and hippimom2,
Thank you both for the warm welcome.  I will definitely talk to the doc next week about the meds.  I normally do okay but some days it is painful to drink.  Wishing you both a pain free night,

I get them too and I use Magic mouthwash. It's Xylocaine, mylanta and benadryl mixed together. My rheumy prescribed it to me and it works instantly on the pain. It dries out the sore and cuts healing time in half. I love it.

Hello thr,
I get them too.  On the roof of my mouth and on my inside of my cheeks.  That along with ulcers makes for a very sore mouth at times.  What I use is plain old salt in warm water.  It has antiseptic properties.  Not too much though, it can make you sick. 
I first used after mouth surgery to clean the stitched area, on the recommendtion of the dental surgeon.  I realised then that it would keep my mouth from getting inefected from mouth sores connected to my SLE.
I also use a straw when drinking anything when my mouth is sore.
I hope you get better soon.
gossamerwings  yeah

I don't know why I didn't think of salt water.  I have been using a straw and drinking out of bottles.  Right now the sores aren't too bad because I just got off of 2000mg of antibiotics for two weeks due to an infection. 

Take care!

I get sores in my mouth but they are usually under my tounge. They don't hurt so much as being akward. They get quit big and last for two or three months at a time. I use a mouth rinse from my dr that helps. But I usually just leave it alone as they don't hurt to bad and I figure as long as it isn't bothering me then I can handle it. I am glad that I don't get them on the roof of my mouth. That sounds very painful.

I get sores all over my mouth (cheeks, gums, tongue, under tongue and roof of mouth). My rheumy says it's from lupus and has given me 3 things to help them.... folic acid.. I take 3-5 mg a day, an Rx for a paste that works well on the ones on the inside cheek and the "magic mouthwash" that works for the rest. I hope you find some relief soon.
