... until month 20. I’m on my third bout of mouth sores on tongue, under tongue, gums and inside of cheeks. I have a prescription for magic mouthwash and I’m doing warm saltwater, but wondering if anyone has any better treatment suggestions. Hurts a lot to eat or talk. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Has anyone had problems with mouth sores? I’ve been on Opdivo 21 months and never had problems...

I was on Optivo 3-1/2 yrs. Then Keytruda for 2 mo. Started getting blisters and sores like I ate a hot piece of pizza. Blisters even went down my throat. I had the Magic mouthwash and even went to Ears, Nose & Throat Dr. Finally went to dentist that excelled in oral problems. He diagnosed me but also did biopsy and it was Linchen Oral. An autoimmune problem.
It lasted about a yr. Including seeing him and it finally stopped. My own dentist did not know what it was, but this guy was affiliated with a hospital so knew quite a lot. Hope this helps
I'm having the same mouth sores on tongue from Opdivo. Nothing has worked to relieve the pain. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
DO you drink a lot of water when you take Opdivo?
