Mouth Sores from chemo: When do they go away?

I have not had sores but this last session caused Thrush, yeast infection, in the mouth. My team did not think the Miracle wash was enough so gave me a higher concentration of a Nystatin mouth rinse that swish and swallow. That has certainly helped. Warm salt-water rinsing also helps with oral issues. Do it several times a day and do not drink anything for a while after rinsing.

I'll give the salt water a try. I would have thought it would have irritated the sores but if it worked for you, I'll give it a go. This is awful.
