Sensodyne Hypersensitivity Causes and Reviews
An allergy is a reaction by your immune system to something that does not bother most other people. People who have allergies often are sensitive to more than one thing. Substances that often cause reactions are
Normally, your immune system fights germs. It is your body's defense system. In most allergic reactions, however, it is responding to a false alarm. Genes and the environment probably both play a role.
Allergies can cause a variety of symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing, itching, rashes, swelling, or asthma. Allergies can range from minor to severe. Anaphylaxis is a severe reaction that can be life-threatening. Doctors use skin and blood tests to diagnose allergies. Treatments include medicines, allergy shots, and avoiding the substances that cause the reactions.

Sensodyne Hypersensitivity Reviews

Started using Sensodyne Pronamel Multi-Action and after a week of using my mouth feels numb. Lips and tongue feel like they are swollen and the roof of my mouth feel like there is a film over it. At first I thought it could be the medicine i was on but curiosity led me here and thanks to all who wrote. I am going to stop using this toothpaste and hope it feels better and this annoying feeling goes away!

Recently bought Sensodyne Repair Protect within two weeks I started experiencing unbelievable pain in my front upper tooth and gum. It felt as if the root was exposed. I also had a bad headache, which could have been caused due to the stress of the pain. Phoned dentist who was fortuitously away otherwise I would have wasted money on something that was not a bad tooth. When my lower teeth started to tingle I immediately decided that it could not be a bad tooth and stopped using the Sensodyne Repair Protect tooth paste by morning the 'root' pain in the gum had gone but the sensitivity of the worst tooth persists even after a few days it is still sensitive to pressure but seems to be getting less. I hope the Sensodyne Repair Protect has not damaged the nerves. I agree someone should start a class action against them. I live in South Africa where we don't have such procedures.
Sensodyne Repair Protect and by the looks of it all their other toothpastes are BAD for YOU and your health. Don't use them and spread the word.

I also have a nightmare story about Sensodyne! I bought a tube of the repair and protect, i used it for a little over a week, and by the end, my lips and gums were swollen, my teeth tingled and I had a mouth full of ulcers! I've been in agony! I stopped using the toothpaste several days ago, and the pain is finally starting to let up, but my mouth is still extremely sore! They either need to remove this product from the market or put a warning label on it!!!

Sorry to hear about your painful ulcers. Like i said in my review there ought to be a class-action lawsuit against the manufacturers!

I've been using Pronamel for about a week (can't recall for certain which, I just made certain not to get whitening, as shortly after using Crest White Strips, two wisdom teeth crumbled, then when I switched to a whitening toothpaste at my husband's request, I got a hole in one molar). Out of concern for weakened enamel, I switched to Pronamel, and immediately noticed a metallic taste and tingling of my tongue that lasts about 10-30 minutes afterwards, and while my gums typically bleed minimally as long as I brush regularly, they bled PROFUSELY from the first use of Pronamel! I'm SO glad I looked up the metallic taste and found this before things got any worse! Back to Colgate for me!

The complaint I have is the dispensing of Sensodyne in the can. The last 2 cans I have bought did not work properly. I have ende up throwing away 1/2 of each can because the product quit coming out. Very disapointed in the design of the product. What a waste of my money

I've been using this for quite some time with no problems recently have been getting white tongue ..wondering if this could be causing it ...did u have this problem too?

After reading all the comments, I am certain this unbearable painful sore gums I've never experienced before is caused by Sensodyne toothpaste. I am furious about this company and the fact that this defect product is recommended by dentists? Conspiracy much? It needs to be heard and they should be sued!
