Mouthwash discomfort

Is it normal for mouthwash to feel uncomfortable and almost cause a stinging sensation?

When I use it it seems to fizz up and cause this irritation..... It feels like an acid-it doesn't feel natural

Re: Mouthwash discomfort

I have the same thing, and I just read that too much listerine ( and probably all mouthwashes with alcohol) can cause your gums to peel back, ouch!! Maybe we should try natrual mouthwash brands, like Toms.

Re: Mouthwash discomfort

Interesting. Thanks folks. Do you know the purpose of alchohol in the mouthwash? Is it an important ingredient?

Re: Mouthwash discomfort

Tom's is a healthier type of mouthwash to use. It's natural and doesn't contain a lot of things that can potentially hurt your teeth. They also make toothpaste and other hygenic supplies. They're a little expensive (probably around $5 or $6 dollars a bottle), but it's worth it.

Re: Mouthwash discomfort

It stings for the same reason alcohol stings. It's more of a burn. It's not the same kind of alcohol that you drink, it's much more toxic, but it's similar. I'd be suprised if brands made without it are as effective.

Re: Mouthwash discomfort

$5 or $6 dollars expensive? You guys get everything cheaply over there!! I will be impressed if I can find somewhere that sells Tom's over here(uk).

I'm willing to sacrifice the effectiveness for a feeling of comfort if that is the case borg.

Re: Mouthwash discomfort

Listerine is pretty harsh. I use ACT mouthwash right now. It doesn't have the burn to it, but I am switching over all food, cleaners, and health products to chemical free as I can get or organic. I will have to check out the Tom's brand. Does it contain fluoride? Thats a concern of mine. I do not use fluoride as it is a toxic chemical and it not beneficial to our health. If you can't find a natural based mouthwash, try switching your brands for now and see if you still have the same problem. Also, I was stationed overseas once, and we used a website where you can order any health, beauty, cosmetic, etc. products. You could probably find a natural based mouthwash on one of those sites???

$5 or $6 dollars is expensive for a tube of toothpaste!

The average cost is $2 or $3 for a decent tube of namebrand toothpaste. Tom's is a little higher, but I recommend it... both the toothpaste and mouthwash. It can be found pretty much anywhere now, including Wal-Mart.

Re: Mouthwash discomfort

Uk decent mouthwash brands are £3-£4($7). But you can get really cheap ones for the equivalent of less than 2 dollars. I'm not sure whether it's a qualitative compromise.

I managed to get a natural one called 'OralClens' for about a fiver(£). No alchohol and the stinging has gone .......Nice one!

It still fizzes a little when I spit it out but I guess that's not bad. It does contain fluoride. Fluoride is in our water over here. Has it been proven to be toxic?? I've heard suggestions that it is before but not seen a clear study showing this....
