| | Swollen gums
I thought I should post this here just in case if some of you are having the same problems and couldn't figure out what is wrong.
Since a week ago, I noticed that my gums are REALLY weird when I wake up in the morning. What I mean is, the bottom of my gum (not in between my teeth) is swollen, the back of my mouth is swollen, I have white mucusy strings coming out of my mouth, the flesh underneathe my tongue is swollen, the tip of my tongue is on fire, and actually the tip of one gum in between two teeth has started to bleed and is staying red all the time. I mean, it is very unusal for me to have bleeding gum.
At first I thought it was pregnancy related because I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant (and the little one is kicking me all the time since a few days ago, YAY!) Anyways, I decided to do a google search on the toothpaste and mouthwash I was using, and turns out my gum problem was caused by the Crest Pro Health toothpaste and Crest Pro Health mouthwash that I was using! I found out that a lot of people have problems with Crest Pro Health...NBC even had a news segment on their mouthwash (but on a different problem - staining).
When I called up Crest they said they are aware of all the problems that I have but is reversible and it's just my gums in the process of getting better?? Um... I really am not getting better with bleeding gum...
I only bought this product because the mouthwash is "alcohol free" and I thought that would be better for the baby inside me... but I will never buy Crest Pro Health again. I would just like to warn other pregnant ladies out there to stay away from this product.
