Question: What do you recommend for multiple lip and mouth sores from lupus flare ups? It is preventing my daughter from eating and talking… very painful. They last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

It remains dormant until there is a breakdown in the immune system or a trigger is encountered that activates it. Regardless, the viral infection needs to be kept in check and treated when it isn’t.
