This could refer to thrush, which is a very common side-effect of chemotherapy. It is usually treated with lotions and mouthwashes to reduce the soreness. It disappears when treatment is finished.

Yes, it's called Oral Thrush here in the UK and it is treated with anti-fungal medicine.

Medicine may only be prescribed depending on where you live. Hope this helps.
