Hey Rob

I think toothpaste could be a culprit too. I switched to euthymol (that old-fashioned one) because it's got very natural ingredients and it's antiseptic. I also began using mouthwash (regular listerine) and I think tho this isn't the cure it has definitely helped.

Euthymol is strong and takes a bit of getting used to - but your mouth will feel super-clean afterwards - I've noticed a definite improvement since I switched to it. Also read a few posts recommending that brushing your teeth and gums well (every individual tooth etc) and changing your toothbrush often generally helps. Good luck!

Try going to your local health food store. There they will probably have a good selection of natural toothpaste, some are just about the same price as the regular stuff. I like kiss my face whitening toothpaste. If anything look for toothpaste without SLS sodium laurel sulfate. I go to vitaminshope almost all toothpaste there is safe except for tom's

I suppose in lots of places there's also fluoride in the water, presumably that could also cause some problems for some people.

Maybe try changing the way you brush your teeth so you're not getting toothpaste on your skin at all....? You know like suck in air while you are brushing or something? Spit more frequently? I never get toothpaste on my skin so I can't honestly say I know where you are coming from just thought I would throw in a different point of view.
