It could be wheat, could be any number of things. Try switching brands. Try a diff't liquor, like spirits, to see if same thing ha. ...Read more

If alcohol drinking leads to oral cancer, then does this mean that using mouth wash also may cause cancer?

Good question: Alcohol, by itself, is not nearly as strong a risk factor for oral cancer as alcohol and smoking. Inflammation of the oral cavity can increase the risk of oral cancer. Most alcohol based mouth rinses are formulated not to irritate and therefore have significantly less of a carcinogenic effect. ...Read more

After using alcohol free mouthwash, tongue feels numb and stiff? Not whole tongue, just the tip and only with alcohol free wash. Tongue is pierced btw

Remove Piercing!: First, I have to say, as cool as tongue piercing may be to you now...It is a wrecking ball to your mouth! The damage, even with a 'soft rubber ball', is staggering. It causes gum loss, broken/fractured teeth, and is a direct portal of germs to your bloodstream. As far as the mouthwash, does anything else cause that phenomenon, or just the mouthwash? Just take it out, you will thank me later. ...Read more

I've been struggling with an orange tongue for a couple weeks now. I use chewing tobacco (a can a week) and consume alcohol. Should I worry?

I've been struggling with an orange tongue for a couple weeks now. I use chewing tobacco (a can a week) and consume alcohol. Should I worry?

Yes and Maybe: The orange tongue may or may not be a problem. The alcohol & chewing tobacco definitely are. You're under 21 so, you are risking legal problems by drinking. As for the chewing tobacco, it is DEFINITELY linked to mouth & jaw cancer. Alcohol increases that risk, too. Its treatments are often disfiguring and affect your ability to talk & eat. Quit both and check the tongue with a doc. ...Read more

Tongue hurts and throught, used mdma and alcohol, soure stomke, dizzy and tired. I don't smoke. Had sex twice, no anal, mouth tired, dizzy.

Not sure why you: Think that whether you had anal sex or not makes a difference, but the problem is nobody knows what they are getting when they use MDMA. This drug is notorious for having a difficult synthesis, so that even if the chemist and dealer and not TRYING to rip you off, they don't know what's in it either. And many people DO rip you off. See your doctor, and stop using MDMA before it hurts you more. ...Read more
