GUEST,Helen, Cookieless BS: should pepperoni taste like soap? (54* d) RE: BS: should pepperoni taste like soap? 29 Oct 09

Hi again,

My problem did start when I opened the last new tube of toothpaste (Colgate). I've had the soapy taste & tingly tongue again in the last few days, but I use the toothpaste every day and I don't get the symptoms every day, so that's why I decided it probably didn't relate to the toothpaste.

I use a pencil at work, with some of the paint has peeled off the end, and I often put the end in my mouth. I have noticed that the soapy taste seems to happen after I do that. If the pencil was made where safety standards are not followed, maybe there is something in the wood, or the paint. I have put the cap of a ballpoint pen over the end of the pencil to stop me from chewing it. I'll see if that makes a difference.

About a year ago I was getting a tingly tongue for a week or so, and it seemed to be worse if I drank coffee (real, not instant). That problem developed into a dose of the 'flu, but there was no soapy taste.

By the way, was there a reason why you thought the pepperoni was the cause? It could have been something else in the meal, even something you drank, like coke or coffee, etc.
