Irritation And Thrush On The Tongue After Gargling With Expired Antiseptic?
I want to ask, 3 days ago I rinsed my mouth with listerin and it turned out that it had expired. The next day small canker sores appear. Then the next day it appears like a red incision with a burning feeling. Now it hurts more and it hurts, I have difficulty talking, eating etc
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The product you mention is an antiseptic mouthwash that aims to eliminate the bacteria that cause bad breath and other oral health problems. So far, it is rare or even no research that determines what symptoms may arise from the use of expired mouthwash, so actually we cannot determine for sure whether the symptoms you mention are from the use of expired mouthwash, or other conditions that coincidentally coincide. time with the use of the mouthwash.
Although there may be a chance that when you use the mouthwash, irritation occurs or there is already a small, invisible sore on the lining of your mouth caused by your teeth or food, which when exposed to the expired mouthwash causes inflammation and other symptoms. you mentioned.
Our advice, for a more definite diagnosis and to avoid misunderstandings, you should have your mouth checked by a dentist for further examination. Because there are other conditions such as lack of nutrition, injury by food or bites, and viral or bacterial infections even normal conditions that can cause symptoms as you mentioned. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
