toothpaste and stuffy nose, swollen eyes
Any evening before bed that I use a mouthwash or toothpaste I wake u with a stuffy nose and/or swollen eyes. I am always on an antihistamine, so it could be worsbe? According to my dental hygiesnist, baking soda doesn't wear tooth enamel, so I will be using that.

Hello - I was first diagnosed with Oral Lichen Planus in December 2005. I suffered horribly through 2012, in which my OLP affected my entire upper and lower gum lines, and covered my cheeks and tongue as well. Then in the fall of 2012, I finally saw a specialist in Baltimore, MD. He prescribed an oral gel steroid called FLUOCINONIDE, GEL, USP, 0.05%. I had been prescribed oral steroids before But, the key was I wasn't using it correctly. Finally, this doctor told me how. He said take a small amount of gel and place it against each area of ulcerated gums and then swish all of the gel around your mouth for about two minutes (the gel creates a lot of saliva). Then, spit out the gel and DO NOT RINSE your mouth. Also - and this is important - DO NOT eat or drink anything for at least one hour. Do this three times each day for about a week, and you will see the sores diminish incredibly. The gel hasn't any real taste, so it's an easy treatment. Initially, your mouth will sting badly when you put the gel on and throughout the next 2-3 mins while you are swishing it around inside your mouth, but once you spit it out, you will have some soothing. Now, I can enjoy a normal diet and eat pretty much anything, except spicy foods, chocolate, and fruits high in citrus (i.e. strawberries, raspberries, blueberries). I can even enjoy ketchup, spaghetti sauce and a salad with balsamic vinegar. So my enjoyment of food is back and I am now living a normal life. I still have flare ups from time to time - (usually because I eat something I was told wasn't spicy or if under great stress), but when I feel one coming on, I do the fluocinonide gel treatment again for 3-4 days, and it goes away.

I can't recommend this treatment enough for all of you.....this is a tough disorder, but you can live a normal life and eat normal food again. The gel can be prescribed by another doctor....so go out and see your family doctor and get it soon!
It's me again - I meant in the last section you can see "any" doctor. Also, I wanted to mention that I had been using Biotene toothpaste all of those years, until they changed the formula recently.....adding "improved PH balance" and now the toothpaste makes my mouth sting, even when my ulcers are gone (my gums are still sensitive but not painful). Does anyone have any other ideas on the best toothpaste to use?

Vertigo and palpitations of heart caused by toothpaste
I am 68 years old. I have been using Colgate tooth paste for the last 60 years. About 13 years back I gradually developed dizziness and palpitations of the heart. Some times I could not sleep due to vertigo as I felt that I will fall from the cot. Due to severe palpitations of heart I used to think that I am going to die. One day I had such a severe dizziness and heart palpitations that I had to go to emergency to have a check up. The doctors took my ECG and declared that I do not have to be afraid of anything and gave me meclizine hydrochloride and sent me home. I used to take that medicine regularly and the vertigo and heart palpitations used to go away. But I had to take the medicine twice daily. Doctors never gave me the reason I developed vertigo. I used to think that as I am getting old this sort of thing is natural due to lesser blood flow to head and inner ears where the position of the body is sensed. But I was miserable and completely clue less as to what I should do. When ever I developed more severe I used to go to doctors who will check me up thoroughly and declare that I am 100% fit. No body either the cardiologist or ENT specialist.
Some times I used to pity myself so much that I thought of quitting my job as professor as I could not stand for long time without holding to something.
Then about two months back I changed my tooth paste. I was using Colgate sensitive regularly and mornings I wanted to use Colgate rapid whitening paste. When I started to use it in the mornings I used to get my vertigo and heart palpitations increased 10 fold and I was miserable. I had a full medical check up performed and again the doctors said that all the parameters were within limit and told me to continue the meclizine tablet. When once I could not get the tablets I had to be rushed to the hospital as I thought that my heart was palpitating so fast. Then also doctors checked my ECG and said that I was 100% fit. This continued for a fortnight and I observed that the severe vertigo comes only from morning 9 AM to 12 AM and not other times. The suddenly I realized that I was getting the severe vertigo only when I started using Colgate rapid white. And also I noticed that when I brushed my teeth at 7 AM I used to get the vertigo from 9 AM. This made me suspect the tooth paste. I stopped the rapid white toothpaste and continued with my regular Colgate sensitive tooth paste. Immediately the severe vertigo stopped but the general feeling of vertigo persisted. After one week I stopped Colgate sensitive and used Himalaya Dental Cream which is a herbal tooth paste. As if by miracle I jumped with joy as the vertigo feeling and heart palpitations stopped completely. I have become a new man. I feel better than ever before in my life and I thank God for giving me the wisdom to identify and stop using tooth paste made of chemicals.
I am free bird now and feeling better than ever. I guess that even though at young age I could tolerate the chemicals, at old age I could not tolerate the chemicals.
This is my personnel experience and I am writing it for people who develop vertigo in their old age. This warning I had to give as none of the 30 to 40 doctors I consulted nobody ever said that it may be due to the tooth paste.
