Mouth ulcers. No improvement after medication. Suggestions?

I have lots of mouth ulcers that started out with just a few, now there are a lot of them. My doctor gave me a rx for "Magic Mouthwash" It is helping some, however, more ulcers are appearing. She also gave me a rx for an antibiotic as I have a very bad sinus infection. I s there anything else that I can try. Because of the sores I don't have the desire to eat even after using the mouthwash. I also have non insulin use Type II DM.

Hi,
It seems that you might be having stomatitis.
This might be due to side effects of antibiotics.
Take capsules or sachets of Lacto-bacillus for few days.
Take some B.complex and folic acid tablets.
Apply Gention violet or glycerine locally.
Avoid constipation.
