solumedtrol steroid can help MS

but can suppress your immune system and cause oral thrush fungal infections.

you could have a bit of dry mouth as well which can make your mouth feel cool

biotine gel and sprays can help with dry mouth

I would not worry too much about this minty cool feeling in your mouth.

it’s actually when i breathe in from my mouth.. feel as if i just had a mint gum or brushed.. do you think it’s an after affect of the steroid? i took the last steroid 1g IV on Jan 02,2018..

it could be from dry mouth or dry air

in winter time, the air is drier and can cause this feeling.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
