I've noticed a lot of OTC mouthwashes/fluoride rinses contain citric and/or phosphoric acid. Wouldn't those harm tooth enamel or is the amt too small?
Accentuates results: OTC mouthwashes do, in fact, contain some acids and their ph level tends to be acidic because of that. The effect on teeth, damage to the teeth is minimal, but the effect on the surface of a tooth allows fluoride to integrate with the enamel of the tooth and strengthens it. So an acid environment does not necessarily cause problems if it is needed. ...Read more

What to do if I have acid reflux and have other food allergies what should I buy that is healthy?
Citrus fruits make me phlemgy and coughy. Do I have a citrus allergy and would it apply to other foods and lotions with citric acid?
Yes and no: If all citrus cause symptoms then you are allergic to an allergen shared by all. On the other hand, some people are only allergic to one and not to another and others just the allergen in the peel and not the "meat". Citric acid is a chemical and not an allergen but may sting the skin a little and thus would not bother you when present in a skin lotion. ...Read more

If it does repeat the avoidance and challenge to confirm. If either condition worsens, I suggest avoiding for a month and rechecking. Most such issues resolve with a little time and patience. ...Read more
