Dear Sir,

Sorry to hear about your problem. Mouth sores are a common complication after chemotherapy and they occur due to decrease in the blood cell counts and reduced immunity of the body to infections. You should give him a well balanced, healthy diet and in addition to this give him multi-vitamins.

Hoping for the best.
