Apply vitamin E oil or moisturizing gels to dry or sore parts of the mouth or tongue for long-lasting relief. Use the liquid oil or punch holes in vitamin capsules.

Me too... I'm going to try it also. I wonder if it'd work for sores in the nose also... I'll "experiment" here.

I have been given some little pills lemon flavoured from the doctor for srjogrens,which once in the mouth make your mouth produce more moisture and for the nose sores have i think its called Bactroban.I will also try your vitamins you mentioned Rebecca,thanks for that.

Sounds interesting. I am waiting to have a lip biopsy, my rheumy is sure I have Sjogren's to add to my RA and overlap syndrome???!!! so he did the eye paper test and just looked at it then started writing, so I assume it was dry and thats why I have to go for the lip biopsy. Until its confirmed, or not, I cant get anything for sore mouth etc unless I just use stuff from over the counter, which here is UK we cant buy lots of things that you have in US. Re the vit E etc, sounds interesting, maybe I'll give it a try

liquid Vitamin E is better than the capsules as the capsules are quite thick and sticky - like honey almost. You can also use the liquid Vitamin E on wounds to heal them faster and with less scarring. I used it last year on my surgery scar and even the dr was impressed with how it looked.
Becky - thanks for the tip - my nose is raw inside and I didn't think to use that, although I did try neosporin, but I find the straight vitamin E works better. I'm going to use that tonight on my nose and try to heal it up.

Wow! Relief for my nose! Thanks for the idea, Becky wrightrs! The antibiotic and antifungal creams all makes the sinus lining inflame and make it wierd feeling to breath thru the nose, but no such swelling with the vitamin E. I'll try to pay attention to if the sores "heal" any faster/slower than what they don't heal with the other ointments... lol - Thanks again.
The "Thanks" thingie is up above, comments down here...
