My husband is now day 14 on Afinitor, and now has sore mouth and and a hoarse raspy voice, and sore throat. He does not use toothpaste with alcohol or mouth wash, so I know its not that. Any known treatment or suggestion as to what to do for sore mouth and throat???
We were told about this side effect. What I do is wrap the afinitor pill in a small amount of coconut oil. That way the pill is not touching sensitive skin. I take the pill with 16 ounces of water to move the pill as far into my system as possible. The oil is heat sensitive and will come off allowing the pill to dissolve normally, 30 days and no mouth sores yet. Some hair loss and a low grade itch for the first 10 days. For me the itch faded. Good luck.
