    Our practice council came across an intriguing article from 2007 that compared topical and systemic Vitamin to treat chemo induced mucositis. I’m looking to see if anyone else is using topical Vitamin E to treat mouth sores. Our providers are hesitant to move forward with using this one piece of evidence and there isn’t much else out there (may be an opportunity for our own research study). Please share if you do use it! Thanks!
