It sounds not. Sores are not commonly seen in patients with cirrhosis. It usually happens in patients with autoimmune disease. People can also just have oral ulcers without any reasons. Vitamin B2 will help the ulcer healing.
Unlikely. Mouth sores are most commonly caused by canker sores, a condition that can also occur in healthy individuals. Canker sores generally heal on their own and do not need treatment. Patients with stage 4 liver cirrhosis tend to have blisters in mouth, which may be partially related to poor liver functions.
