Covid mouth

Hi,

DH tested positive yesterday, symptoms started Saturday night and he's developed horrendous ulcers all on his tongue and roof of his mouth.

Any advice on how to treat this? I've suggested corsydol mouthwash but he won't try it, he's not eating.

As you said, Cordosyl is very good. Otherwise a numbing spray, like Chloroseptic

If he can tolerate it, a mouthwash of warm salty water will help ease the pain and speed up healing.

Strepsils extra strength (not normal strepsils) numb inside the mouth if you suck them. I had this and they really helped.

Make up a jug of boiled salt water, wait for it to cool to warm, then gargle a glass of it every hour throughout the day. I always do this when I get tonsillitis and it keeps everything clean and germ free and really aids the healing process
