Can mouthwash cause sores? Confused..

So, I floss my teeth before brushing and have never felt the need to use mouthwash. When I go for my cleaning, they always give me samples of Crest pro health rinse and I decided I would try it this time. I've been using it about a week now and noticed my gums getting sore and bleeding when brushing. I thought maybe this was normal when first using it, but this morning I woke up with the corners of my mouth sore and cracked a bit. Just now brushing my teeth, I used the rinse again and a sore spot on the inside of my cheek started bleeding. I thought mouthwash was to prevent these things, but I had none of these problems before trying it so I'm quite confused. Can it have a bad reaction on some people? I searched it but got results about helping canker sores with mouthwash so I decided to try here instead

Re: Can mouthwash cause sores? Confused..

I have never tried Crest Pro health but have seen numerous posts regarding different reactions to it so maybe do a advanced search on this forum to see what others have experienced with it. Some mouth washes contain alcohol or peroxide and as such they can have a very drying affect on the mucus membranes in the mouth and around the lips - so you may want to limit their useage to only a couple times a week or try a more natural rinse like Toms. Biotine puts out a rinse that is very soothing - it is made for those that suffer with dry mouth and therefore require something quite mild and non-irritating. Stop rinsing for a few days and let your mouth heal - this is obviously too harsh for you.
