Starting yesterday, I have had a bitter taste when I licked my fingers. I discovered it when I went to turn a page on a catalog. I recoiled at the taste and then licked my other fingers. The same "aspirin" like taste is only on my fingers and not on the rest of my hand. I also have been experiencing a swelling on the inside of my mouth after talking for a few minutes. I also seem to produce extra salivia when my mouth becomes swollen. What could be causing this and are the 2 issues related?
Well, first I would thoroughly wash hands..if you still have same thing then you could be showing signs to having an allergic reaction to something..important to see a doctor to be sure..esp. since you mentioned swollen mouth.
