Q. The inside of my mouth became very sensitive to salt, acid and anything spicy. When my wife looked, she said it looked like thrush.
I went to my dentist to have it checked out. After a visual assessment and asking about medications, one of his first questions was, “Are you using a cinnamon toothpaste?”
Stopping the cinnamon toothpaste and using a prescription medicated mouthwash called ‘Magic Mouthwash’ cured the condition in about 10 days. I hope this will help other readers.
A. You are not the only person to experience problems with cinnamon toothpaste. Some people are sensitive to this ingredient and may develop irritation or chapped lips as a reaction to it (Journal of the American Dental Association, Sept., 1995). Pharmacists compound Magic Mouthwash to ease oral irritation.
