Oral mucositis is the redness or a burning sensation produced by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It consists of inflammation of the digestive mucous membrane, frequently in mucous membrane in the oral cavity, and may lead to an ulcer, causing pain and/or difficulty eating as well as affecting the quality of life and the patient’s ability to continue with treatment.
Good prevention and early detection are fundamental to avoid complications. To reduce the symptoms of mucositis it is important to follow the following advice:
If you notice ulcers in your mouth or any other change (redness, burning sensation, white spots, etc.) that cause pain or stop you from eating properly, consult your nurse and/or day hospital.
If you have a fever which develops call the immediate care line or go to A&E.
