Initially, said Endah, he had handled patients with mouth to perfort because the network died. "And after being asked, it turns out he was previously canker sores, then use the drug," she said.

In addition, Endah said there is no scientific study that proves the use of policresulen can cure diseases or disorders of the oral cavity, such as sprue.
