To the Editor We would like to take the opportunity to comment on the recently published Teachable Moment by Uberoi and colleagues,1 which taught us that there is a lack of evidence supporting the application of magic mouthwash for patients with oral mucositis related to chemotherapy or head and neck radiotherapy. However, we believe this topic may deserve further discussion.
