Jaw itch after chewing

Several months ago my dentist slipped with an air abrasion tool while removing decay from a tooth on top and put a hole in back of mouth the tool. The hole is healed. Ever since after I eat something really chewy side of face swells and jaw itches and I have swelling under gums on bottom, if I eat a lot of chewy foods, the outer ear becomes very itchy,and often have a nasty taste that comes from the swelling gum area. Every 3-4 days the nasty taste becomes really intense for about 15-20 minutes. I have been to a new dentist, an oral surgeon, a dental specialist, had many x rays done of whole mouth, checked for tmj, had silagram done, tested the salivary gland it is ok, had mri, everything came back normal. I have been seen by a neurologist and he said he does not think it is a nerve, I have no pain at all, just the itch, does anyone have any idea's on what can be going on? I will be seeing another neurologist but not until August.

Re: Jaw itch after chewing

I have this also. I have never found any answers. Sjogrens was a thought. I've had it for two years.
