Mouth ulcer, throat pain. Taking chemo treatment, Sucrafil, Mucaine Gel, Ketoral, Oxum, Tantum. Treatment for ulcer, pain?

I am under radiation for the last 14 times and 6 more to go. I have also gone through 4 cycles of chemo with FCR for NHL. After radiation under the chin and neck I have developed mouth ulcers and unable to swallow and it is painful even to swallow saliva . I am under medication too, I am advised to take a mixture of Sucrafil and Mucaine Gel 10 ml each before 15 minutes of my food and also taking Ketoral for pain killer still mouth ulcer and pain in the throat not subsided. I am also goggling my mouth with Oxum and Tantum in diluted form. How to reduce the ulcer and the pain in the throat ? I have to go 4 more chemo cycles after the radiation.

Good evening. Mucositis, which is the problem that you are experiencing, when it is associated with radiotherapy is not easy to solve. One thing that might calm you down is the knowledge that this is a temporary problem, which will resolve some days-weeks after stopping radiotherapy. For the time being, pain killers, local measures like lidocain in gel or swallows, oral sucralfate, and the things you are already doing are correct. You should try to eat/drink thinks more soft and if you think you cannot eat, you should consult your doctor for a possible admission to the hospital.
