I am writing this in hopes that all those that have BMS will find some benefit and hopefully long term relief
A few years ago I woke up with my mouth on fire, tongue swollen and a few small white sores on my gums and tongue. I thought maybe I was having a reaction to insulin, as I had spent the previous day in the ER with an IV of Insulin. I then went to he clinic and they prescribed a mouth rinse and I tried that for a few days and that didn't seem to help much. Next I decided I would try Hydrogen Peroxide and let me tell you, there is nothing I can think of that hurts more than that, if my mouth was not literally on fire before, it was now! I stood it as long as I could and after, I did feel some relief so I did it a couple more times throughout the day. Went to the pharmacy for more and there, discovered an OTC product by Orajel 2X mouth sore rinse! After a day or two, everything was back to normal! Once in a while (2-3 times a year) it will flare up again and I use the Orajel which takes it away! I hope this info. helps, take care and good luck!!! @btsum68
