I have been using this in my mouth for canker sores for years. Canker sores have plagued me my whole life. Whether its from allergies, I have no idea. As soon as I can feel a sore coming on, I put fluocinonide gel on the spot. It works best before bed when your done eating and drinking. I will wake up the next day and the potential sore will be gone. This has improved my quality of life drastically. Even if it did have negative side effects, I would still consider it.
Absolutely not. It is for external use only. If you have a problem with your mouth, see your dentist.
