Doc, why well, since I gargled it with baking soda and salt, my tongue can’t taste food anymore and my nose has also stopped functioning? tkx

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Gargling with baking soda and salt, basically not something that is absolutely prohibited in the medical and can actually be useful. Among the benefits of gargling with baking soda is that it can help deal with bad breath, and brushing your teeth with baking soda can make teeth whiter. As for gargling with salt, this can help relieve tooth pain.


As for your condition, you can not even feel the food and smell becomes reduced, this needs further examination, is it really a direct impact of this gargling activity or is it because something else just happened that happened close to the time you rinse. Our guess is that the ability to taste might decrease due to salt concentrations and baking soda that are too high and gargling for too long, making the surface of the tongue less sensitive. But even this shouldn't affect your olfactory ability. Then the examination is very important to avoid misunderstandings and find other clues to your condition.


Our advice, if this condition is already very annoying, immediately consult a ENT doctor to get further examination and treatment. However, if it is still not too disturbing, considering that there is a corona virus outbreak everywhere, it is better to be at home first and not to leave the house except because of important business that cannot be postponed, multiply the consumption of water, fruits and vegetables, avoid cigarettes, and don't rinse with baking soda and salt first. So, hopefully answering your question.
