Who says ‘You can’t teach an old dog a new trick? I suppose my senior citizen status qualifies me as old … But I learned something this past week.
Due to my persistent drooling condition, the corners of my mouth were cracked and a very raw line had formed and descended down from both corners of my mouth, extending nearly 2/3rds of an inch down on each side of my chin. When I opened my mouth wide enough to insert my dentures the corners of my mouth would crack and bleed. It had become unsightly and made me grateful for being able to hide behind my ‘covid mask’.
What I learned from a grandson this past week, is that simply by applying a hydrocortisone cream onto the sore places morning and night, and in between times… the soreness can be held away. Of course the drooling will continue but I celebrate a small victory.
