Allergic to splint?

Hi everyone,

I am having a problem with my splint that is a bit unusual. Everytime I get it adjusted and new acrylic is added i have a sore raw mouth. It usually goes away but I had splint adjusted last tuesday and it is now Saturday and my mouth is still so sore. This is not from rubbing against a rough spot. It is sore indifferent areas i.e. inside both cheeks, under my tongue, tongue, inside lip. I mentioned it to my Dr. last visit and he recommended I run under cold water for 20 minutes and this should help. (it hasn't) I have been putting medication to numb it, that is used for canker sores. This helps some but is short term. I have to wear my splint 24/7 and my joint feels so much better with it in but this raw sore mouth is just about to drive me crazy. I am beginning to wonder if I am feeling the effects on my face as well. Because in the last couple of days my cheeks have become itchy, burning and red. I thought is was from new make up but now I am not so sure. I have never been able to wear th acrylic finger nails because my finger start burning and itching. Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions? I would really appreciate any ideas because I really need to be able to wear this thing. Thanks!
