Clinicians considering treatment for patients presenting with oral ulcers should:
- assess the severity of the patient’s ulcers including frequency and interference with daily activities;
- if treatment is required, establish whether over-the-counter products (purchased or prescribed) have already been tried, and whether it is appropriate to use/retry;
- if above mentioned treatments are not suitable, consider prescribing betamethasone soluble tablets for off-label topical use as a mouthwash, counselling patients on how to administer treatment, and stressing that the mouthwash must not be swallowed;
- if neither of the above options are appropriate, prescribers should seek specialist advice from the oral medicine clinic.
