    Mouth, why is the mint toothpaste making you sting? It shouldn't be stingy, I know that much. So now I gotta test with a cup of mint tea whether or not I need to remove mint from the things I can safely put in my body.

    Which means I have to try and figure out how much 'mildly tingly' is normal, and whether or not I'm reacting like I should to the tea. (Which is harder, because 1) tired, 2) throat is sore and I'm pretty sure I've caught a cold, and 3) one of the things mint does is 'tingly followed by cool numbness' which makes it harder to tell if it's just Normal or if I'm actually having a reaction.)

    If it's at all helpful, i've never had a tingly sensation from mint before.

    It does help, yeah. The tea was a little tingly, but there wasn't any stinging. So whatever's causing the stinginess is in the toothpaste and isn't the mint.

    Deresto According to all known laws of aviation, there is

    Do you use paste or gel? Because swapping one for the other as a test (if you can) might be beneficial.

    Paste, I think? The "Tom of Maine's" spearmint with fluoride. I used the non-mint, non-fluoride one we have (because Hummingbird is allergic to mint) and it was fine asides from fennel being a godawful flavour for toothpaste. I rinsed with non-alcohol mint mouthwash that has fluoride in, and that did sting a bit. So idek at this point? It could even just be "my dental hygiene is awful and needs to step up A Lot".
