Im a 37 year old male and all of a sudden seem to have developed breathing problems whenever i use toothpaste. It started with Colgate but tried other brands, Crest, Aquafresh etc.... but still struggling to breath for around 20-30 min after. When i cough it feels like my chest is on fire, a bit like having a chest infection. Its weird because i can usually chew gum ok as long as it not the ultra-strong type. This has happened in the past and it has just subsided and gone away - seems to be a yearly thing for a short period of time, but it always seems to start with Colgate brands. Has anyone else experienced this and can recommend a toothpaste that potentially wont leave me struggling for breath.
Its possible you are allergic to an ingredient in the toothpaste I know I am to sulphites in shampoos..try looking in a whole food store for a toothpaste for a toothpaste with no additives ..not easy to find I know maybe do some research on hypoallergenic TP It may not be the toothpaste there have been many coughs around this year and last I have a dry cough for about 4 months now ,nothing wrong with me I put it down to the environmental toxins being sprayed .
