Treating Mouth Sores During Lupus Flares

Posted on May 30, 2019



Mouth sores, also called oral ulcers, are a common symptom of lupus flares. They are also one of the symptoms doctors look for when diagnosing lupus. Mouth sores may show up on the roof of the mouth or inside the nose. Some people experience mouth sores as an annoyance, but for others, they can be painful enough to interfere with eating and drinking.

Members on MyLupusTeam have shared several different treatments, including medication, prescribed mouthwashes and ointments, over-the-counter mouthwashes, and diet changes.

On MyLupusTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with lupus, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Mouth sores are one of the most discussed topics.
