suggestions for mouth sores and skin itching for patients on alimta?


Posted by ducky

my mother just had 1st dose of alimta 2 weeks ago.  now has lip/mouth sores, making it difficult to eat.  also, complaining of uncontrollable itiching of the head and neck.  She has been on magic mouthwash for 4 days.  MD prescribed acyclovir twice/day for 7 days, hydrocortisone cream.  she has her counts tomorrow.  Any other suggestions for her comfort?
