Hi i like other people on here seem to have this bitter tasting skin , ( last 3 days ) really don't want to lick my lips put my fingers near my mouth , but was wondering have any of you had a diagnosis for what this can be ??.
I don't use canned air to clean my keyboard either .
I was using dumbell's last night and my son shortly after, he wiped his lips after having a drink and couldn't believe the bitterness he tasted .
So guys any help appreciated as its weekend and will take me about 5 days to get appointment at docs and i am concerned cheers .
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Bitter taste in mouth is a common side effect of many medications. It could be due to infection of gums or cavities in teeth. It could also be an abnormal perception of bitter taste called dysgeusia. GERD and heart burn too cause bitter taste in mouth. Post nasal drip as in sinusitis, salivary glands infection, pharyngitis or strep infection too are common causes. Certain dentures and artificial tooth or filling of dental cavities too give a metallic taste. Sjogren’s syndrome and copper or lead toxicity are other possibilities.
First of all drink water and see. Have citrus juices, lemonade and foods marinated in vinegar. They help in washing away the bitter taste by producing more saliva. Brush your teeth and your tongue with a tongue cleaner at least twice in a day and surely at bedtime. It will help in lessening the taste. Vit C tablets, over the counter oral mouthwashes will help fight the taste. Increase fibers in the diet. Eat fresh things like apples that are crunchy or rough things like popcorn scrapes the white debris off the tongue.
If all this does not help, do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
