I have a problem with dry mouth severe dry mouth. I drink water all day and night I stay away from to much salt and have sugar free gum and sugar free candies to moisten my mouth and it does no do much and it wakes me up at night. I keep getting sores on the back sides of my tongue, my tongue is red and sore like a burn and feels swollen. I have many health issues and am on several meds. My lips are dry and chaped especialy the corner of my mouth. Has anyone had these symptoms and what should I do?
Thank You, Jen :eek:

  • I have the same symptoms.. my mouth is always dry and I have this white stuff that is always on the sides and top of my tongue, my lips are always really chapped all the time! I've gone to the doctor in fear of it being an STD, but tests have shown nothing.. I'm still scared of it though ):

I find that that a salt/sugar rehydration solution at 3-4 glasses a day will at least improve those symptoms. 1/4 tsp salt, 2 tsp sugar, 1/4 liter water (see wikipedia "rehydration solution" - home made for link). I find it works most effectively if absorbed through the mouth (ie hold it in the mouth for a while before swallowing) You may want to check the symptoms of Diabetes as another guess...Don't overdo it or it causes headaches.
