The preparation is suitable for use as an oral lavage, and comprises water, hydrogen peroxide in a premixed aqueous form in the preparation mixture, with between about 0.1% and about 0.4% sodium bicarbonate. To produce such a preparation adapted for the prophylaxis and treatment of oral lesions most preferably involves dissolving hydrogen peroxide and sodium bicarbonate in an aqueous solution to produce a premixed preparation having between about 0.1% and about 0.8% hydrogen peroxide and between about 0.1% and about 0.4% sodium bicarbonate. In more preferable embodiments of the present invention, the oral lavage (formulation) includes hydrogen peroxide at a concentration of about 0.4% and sodium bicarbonate at a concentration of about 0.2%. Additionally, a method for prophylaxis and treatment of oral lesions incident the use of chemotherapeutic agents is included in the present invention. This method involves the step of initially providing a premixed preparation comprising water, between about 0.1% and about 0.8% hydrogen peroxide and between about 0.1% and about 0.4% sodium bicarbonate. Oral rinsing with said preparation, particularly multiple daily oral rinsing, is shown to enhance healing of oral lesions and impedes or prevents the development of oral lesions.
