Doctors typically prescribe antiviral drugs such as acyclovir, valacyclovir and famciclovir to reduce the severity and duration of chicken pox lesions in all surfaces, including the mouth. In addition, patients should practice basic hygiene to prevent chicken pox lesions in the mouth from becoming secondarily infected by bacteria. Tooth brushing at least twice a day, flossing and using disinfectant mouthwash are sufficient for most people. However, patients should take care not to apply toothpaste directly to the lesions, because the abrasives in toothpaste can cause mechanical irritation and tissue trauma.
