I'm just referring to previous comments I'm a 46 yr old

Customer Question

Hello Dr I'm just referring to previous comments I'm a 46 yr old woman who has a very strong taste of mint in my mouth I'm trying to work out if it is in fact acid which tastes minty... Odd I know but sometime it has the same after taste as white wine!!! It's extremely strong and sometimes so hot i have to open my mouth to cool it!!! I work in a hospital environment and wonder if it is anything to do with the coin ell wipes we have to use? Although even after a break of a day or two It's still as strong . I'm on hurt too for 4 years but have never had this problem before ...

Hi. First off--what did you mean by hurt too?

How long have you been having the taste?

Any problems with indigestion or heartburn?
