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?
