Listerine Oral Discomfort Causes and Reviews


Cold sores are caused by a contagious virus called herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two types of HSV. Type 1 usually causes oral herpes, or cold sores. Type 1 herpes virus infects more than half of the U.S. population by the time they reach their 20s. Type 2 usually affects the genital area.

Some people have no symptoms from the infection. But others develop painful and unsightly cold sores. Cold sores usually occur outside the mouth, on or around the lips. When they are inside the mouth, they are usually on the gums or the roof of the mouth. They are not the same as canker sores, which are not contagious.

There is no cure for cold sores. They normally go away on their own in a few weeks. Antiviral medicines can help them heal faster. They can also help to prevent cold sores in people who often get them. Other medicines can help with the pain and discomfort of the sores. These include ointments that numb the blisters, soften the crusts of the sores, or dry them out. Protecting your lips from the sun with sunblock lip balm can also help.

I started using Listerine and it made one of my cheaks soo sensitive, I keep getting this weird feeling its sore and scary because I cant chew on anyhthing ; ( I dont know if I should visit my gp or wait for longer to see if its gna go away. :(

Thu, 19 Jan 2012

On the first use itself i felt sme burning sensation in my mouth and the lower lip become reddened and swollen.

Wed, 25 Jan 2012

I burned my mouth so bad with Listerine Whitening Mouthwash. I rinsed my mouth out immediately with water to get all of the mouthwash out and threw the Listerine away. It really hurt. Now, I'm having issues with my mouth and it has been at least 5 weeks. I have that burned tongue feeling. I believe it caused some real damage to my mouth. My saliva seems less and my mouth gets dry. Also, it seems like the glands under the back of my tongue ot a little inflamed. Pretty scary now. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow. I'm very nervous :(

Sun, 16 Feb 2014

I used Listerine Total Care Zero a few hours ago and instantly lost my sense of taste. The inside of my mouth and tongue are now sore and very dry. I'm very uncomfortable right now and am not sure what to do to alleviate my discomort. So frustrated!

Tue, 24 Jan 2012

I have been using Listerine Total Care plus whitening for a month or more. I have recently noticed a loss of taste. I am stopping the use of this product today!

Sat, 14 Sep 2013

I've been using Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush rinse for about five days. It burns so bad in my mouth, I can only swish for about 10 seconds and then spit it out, rather than the 60 seconds the instructions recommend. Although my teeth do look a little whiter, the skin on my lips has started burning and peeling off. My lips feel sore, and are swollen and itchy. It's like after I've had a bad sunburn on my lips, but this is not a sunburn. I can just peel strips of skin off my lips. I'm not using this product anymore. Slightly whiter teeth but burns my mouth terribly. This product is too harsh!

Tue, 27 Aug 2013

My wife and I started using Listerine a month ago, thinking it would be good as a mouthwash. We both started getting ulcers at the same time. Its been 3 days since we both stopped, and the ulcers are disappearing as well. Clearly, Listerine is dangerous, too many chemicals in it. It should be taken off the shelves of all supermarkets.

Wed, 02 Apr 2014

do you feel better now ?
I have the same symptoms and I'm a bit worry

Fri, 07 Dec 2012

I'm 16 and recieved a small bottle from my dentist, I decieded to use it thinking I might like it. It hurt so bad! the taste buds on my tongue got oversized and looked like the might have popped! I woke up this morning and I can't taste anything, not salt, sugar, things spicey. NOTHING. I can only feel my food. I don't have pain anymore, but this product needs to be recalled its dangerous.
