My mom has a "tinny mouth" from the chemotherapy. Her mouth is also dry. The "tinny mouth" did not start until her 5th treatment for breast cancer. Is there anything to help with the tinny mouth?

my mother is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer for the 2nd time. She has the "metallic "taste in her mouth now. Her doctor suggested she eat with plastic silverware and it has helped a lot.

When presented with the same metallic taste in my mouth, it was recommended by a nurse, that I try a bite of chocolate. It certainly helped me... both physically and psychologically. The chocolate was like having a reward for enduring all the side effects.
