Default Re: Has anyone experienced leg calluses / "cold sores" on mouth?

Just wanted to give an update in case anyone else has a similar situation and wants to know how we handled it - Mabel is 100% healed now, we put her on Antirobe and within 4 days her scabs were peeling up and her mouth was totally healed. She didn't seem to mind the unflavored Antirobe taste and dutifully took each dose of meds. It took 7 days for her scabs to come off on their own, but now she's all back to normal.
