allergy/cold/weird saliva

Hello,

Recently i have contracted a minor cold.  I usually do at end of summer as my allergies get a little more vigorous.  However, my saliva tastes so weird and its like freaking me out.  Its almost my entire mouth tastes this way.  ANy ideas????

Bad taste can arise in response to:  
• many different medications;
• infection of the mouth or teeth;
• allergy; or
• viral infection.  With a viral infection this is almost always a self-limited problem that will resolve spontaneously, within weeks or, at most 1 to 2 months.

Hi, I've found that my saliva, too, sometimes tastes a little strange when I've got a cold or any sort of nasal/sinus problem, so it's probably nothing to worry about.  I will say, however, that I've always noticed a very distinct taste when I have contracted strep throat.  Have you had a sore throat at all?  Just a thought.
