Y’all…I CAN’T TASTE S*** RIGHT NOW.
I thought it was because of my dentist appointment this past Monday. The same day I started using this Crest Pro-Health Clinical mouthwash. They did some weird stuff to my teeth that required different rinses. Okay, whatever.
Baby naw. It’s this damn mouthwash. My tongue feels like I tried to eat some fresh out the oven chicken pot pies, and I can’t even taste ORANGE JUICE. It’s been like this the whole week.
Co-worker and I looked up some side effects and this was among the first. Crest mouthwash temporarily leaves tastebuds ruined. What?
Hit up my dentists. They were flabbergasted.
Dentist 1: Are you sure, Ms. Carroll? That sounds extreme. We don’t use Crest around here though.
Me: I just sprinkled salt on my tongue and can barely feel it, let alone taste it.
Dentist 1: Oh my!! That’s ridiculous. How interesting!
Me: Not really. It hurts and I’m starving. (eating is no fun if you can’t taste the food)
*dentist 1 gets the dental squad in the office*
Dentist 2: Okay, let’s see here Ms. Carroll. Why are you using this mouthwash?
*I mumble “why the hell else would I use it?”
Me: I like to keep a clean mouth, fresh breath, healthy gums, that sort of thing.
Dentist 2: Sure! Well we’re googling it right now…..
Receptionist: Really?!? *looks at google results I’m assuming* Ms. Carroll you’ve gotta stop this!! <—didn’t even know she was in my business
Dentist 1: This isn’t good. Just try Listerine.
Me: Could y’all tell me why this is happening and if I’ll be able to taste again soon? And have you ever heard of similar cases?
Dentist 2: Just steer clear from it. Stop the Crest wash today. Next week use Listerine. Let us know what happens.
*blah blah bullsh*, end of phone call*
So anyway, I’m hungry. My breath is fresh af, and my tongue hurts.
GOD GOT ME.
