Need to buy an anti septic wash mouth,but which one is the best,there are so many to choose from..

Corsodyl (ICI) but I hope the taste has improved!

Safest and cheapest is frequent use of comfortably hot water with about one heaped teaspoon to 1 pint ordinary salt disolved in it.

Obviously about a quarter of a pint of the mixture at a time is enough.

Harmless and comforting. Really helps ordinary natural healing.

Err... perhaps double the salt, the idea is a brew sightly more saline than blood!

Next to smoking, alcohol is supposed to be the second biggest cause of oral cancer, the NHS says the studies in the above links cannot be backed up without a lot more research.

I agree with Diemmess, Corsodyl is excellent, I have used after dental treatments, other than extractions where you should allow clotting and only use warm salty water after a day, and then only gentle rolled around the mouth.

Hospital gave me Corsodyl after having a couple of biopsies.

Also worth noting that some mouthwash if used too much can give you oral thrush.

used Corsodyl to get rid of oral thrush, and there are some medications out there from the NHS that cause thrush oral, especially the asthma medications.

Mind you after reading the thread ive just thrown all my corsodyl and asda mouthwashes down the toilet.

Go to your chemist and ask advice for care+. Basic disenfectant for wounds and a mouthwash at a reasonable price.
