Is it possible to get heartburn from toothpaste or mouthwash?

The last 2 nights I've gone to bed I've had awful heartburn, to the point I feel sick.

I can only put it down to toothpaste or mouthwash but can that be possible because you don't eat it?

Yes. Many mouthwashes have a high alcohol content. Try one of hte 'sensitive teeth' or alcohol free brands. Oral B makes one that's good.

Oh thank god for that.

I won't use it then.

Thanks expat.

I used to get WICKED heartburn from the regular stuff whilst pregnant. So I switched to the Oral B stuff for a while. It's a bit more expensive, but I'm religious about brushing, flossing and rinsing w/mouthwash twice a day.

Oral B, right have noted that.

It's a supermarket one we have atm I think. I just won't use it.

You can use the supermarket stuff to clean toothbrushes.
