Oral Mucositis

Oral mucositis occurs as a nonspecific effect of chemotherapy and radiation therapy on the basal epithelium of the mouth. The signs and the symptoms of mucositis generally occur about 5 to 7 days after chemotherapy or almost at any time during radiation therapy. Patients with oral mucositis experience pain, local and systemic infections, and decrease in the ability to eat and speak.
