Several cancer treatments, including radiation and chemotherapy, can leave you with painful mouth sores - which can make eating difficult. Orabase has been specially formulated to adhere to the mucosa membranes and any raw weeping areas in your mouth to prevent and soothe mouth ulcers.
Orabase Paste can be used in the mouth, around wounds, and for ostomies which need protection. It does not contain any steroids.
How does Orabase Protective Paste help mouth sores and ulcers?
Mouth sores, such as those that occur during chemo treatment, can become quite painful when exposed to food, drink and other acids in your mouth. Orabase sticks to the mucosal lining to provide sores and ulcers with a protective layer. This layer allows the wounds to heal quickly and reduce the chances of inflammation and infection. It also provides comfort for people while eating and drinking.
Why do sore mouths and ulcers occur?
In the cancer setting, sore mouths and ulcers can be a result of certain chemotherapies and radiotherapy to the head, neck or lung area. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy are effective in destroying cells that divide rapidly. This a characteristic of cancer cells. The cells that line the mouth and digestive tract also rapidly divide, increasing their risk of being attacked by chemotherapy or radiation. The result is a breakdown of these cells leading to inflammation and ulcers in the mouth.
Is there anything I can do to prevent having a sore mouth or ulcers?
Yes and no. Due to the nature of treatment, sometimes it is difficult to prevent side-effects such as sore mouth and ulcers. But there are ways to improve the healing process and stop the ulcers from worsening. Orabase Protective Paste for Sore Mouth and Ulcers is one product that can help the healing process as it provides a protective layer over the sores. The protective layer improves the environment of the ulcers, so they are able to heal quicker.
Is Orabase purely used in the mouth?
No. Orabase’s formula is special in that it sticks to mucous membranes and raw areas. This means it can benefit people who have ostomies or needing ostomy care, including ileostomies and colostomies. Consult your stoma nurse if you think you could benefit from Orabase.
Does Orabase contain steroids?
No, Orabase does not contain any steroids.

Chemo has been giving me ulcers and a sore mouth despite mouthwashes so thought I’d try this. Certainly sticks to the ulcer and clears them up. A decent sized tube too.
I purchased this for my father who had severe mouth ulcers following his first chemotherapy treatment, he had relief from the soreness within minutes and they had nearly all cleared within 3 days.
Love it.. thanks so much for providing this product.. Helps take the pain away while coating the sores in the mouth without any other medication.
it seems to work great
Done the trick. So must better than bonjela and size was a good fair amount. Definitely recommend. Was happy to have found it
The ulcer calmed down in under 24 hours and was gone completely in about 3 days. It does feel strange when applied but its worth it. Its brilliant stuff.
I have suffered with mouth ulcers for several years now and they are usually big and painful and last 2 weeks. I used to get adcortyl in orabase in a 5g tube from my doctor which always worked for me but it became discontinued. This seems to be the same stuff, it looks exactly the same anyway but in a much bigger tube. You need to apply it as soon as you get the ulcer as I find if the ulcer is already established then it takes longer to get rid of. Wipe the area dry with some kitchen roll or a cotton bud before you apply it and don't rub it in just sort of smear it on. The ulcer should be gone in just a couple of days.
Excellent product. My husband has suffered from mouth ulcers for over 6 months. Tried everything, but to no avail. Heard of Orabase from a friend and decided that we might as well give it a go - so glad we did. After the first application he noticed an immediate improvement. From now on will keep a tube in medicine cabinet, and recommend it to all our friends.
This actually works, the paste stays on the ulcer and mine disappeared overnight like magic. I would definitely recommend it.
I've been suffering with ulcers for a long time I used to use some stuff called adcortyl in orabase,and I would say this is about the same. They go within a couple if days I would recommend it
