I am presently taking 50mg Prednisone and 20mg Methotrexate for recent diagnosis of GCA/PMR.
Several weeks ago, I had mouth sores and thought it to be thrush. I took medication for this. Now, I have multiple sores on my tongue and inside my cheeks. I'm not so sure that it is thrush after all. I know that Methotrexate can cause mouth sores, and Prednisone can cause thrush. I had thrush years ago when I had a bad tooth infection for several months. I don't see the white plaque around these sores like I had then.
Have any of you had this problem? Any prevention suggestions? I will be talking to my rheumy this week, so can hopefully get a definite diagnosis on what is causing these sores, and how to treat them. I have tried some Vit. E capsules, but no relief so far.
Thanks for your help.
