  • Reaction when brushing teeth

    Anyone else experienced this? I have subtype 1 rosacea on nose, and occular symtoms as well, and I have started to notice tingling in nose and redness when I brush my teeth.

    I get the same tingling and redness when I react to food, which is basically almost all my meals.

    Do you mean the redness from stretching your mouth?

      I get more red when brushing my teeth as well. I think it has something to do with nerve activity in the face and/or weak blood vessels.

        No, I mean literally a reaction to either the brushing or the toothpaste. This is so weird

            Histamine

            Maybe do a test with antihistamine and check again while brushing. Might be some sort of allergy.

              Probably something wrong with me and connected to the fact that I cannot eat anything without redness...

                Brushing

                Wow- I googled does brushing teeth make rosacea worse and was surprised it let me to such a recent post here. For me I noticed the pain/pressure on my left side gets worse in the AM and PM. I assumed it was from removing my makeup, but I still feel it even when I don’t wear makeup so it occurred to me that maybe it is from jabbing the inside of my mouth with my toothbrush. I guess one way to test it is to skip brushing my teeth for one night......

                  Toothpaste

                  my chin has permanent bumps on it that I’ve had for about 30 years. I assumed it was worse than the rest of my face because of toothpaste and food running down on it. You said you nose tingles-my nose itches with certain food smells—or say if a food hits it -like eating an apple

                    Hello! I think I react to the toothpaste and not the actual jabbing. But not sure

                      Could it be a sodium fluoride intolerance / allergy? Maybe a fluoride-free toothpaste may help alleviate some of your symptoms? I have the same reaction when I brush my teeth but I'm not 100% sure if it's from the fluoride in the toothpaste or when I spit it out the blood flows to my face much more / the blood vessels react.

                      Maybe try a fluoride free or maybe a different flavour than mint- flavoured? I think I'm gonna try fluoride free toothpaste soon and see if it makes a difference for me.

                      All the best.

                        Hi, I had the same problem, face flushing and redness during and (long) after brushing my teeth. For me it had to do with the toothpaste I used. I thought for a while that it was the fluoride that triggered my rosacea, but lately I am using a brand of toothpaste called Squigle, a high xylitol gentle toothpaste without SLS, spearmint and parabens and I use a fluoride free one during the day and a fluoride version at night (small amount). No more flares. I would be careful for the fluoride version not to drip down your chin as there is a scientific established link between perioral dermatitis (bumps and inflammation of the chin in this case) and fluoride toothpaste use.

                        Of course it could also be that you flare from fluoride or any other ingredient in your toothpaste, or indeed from the act of teeth brushing itself..

                        More on squigle in this forum post: https://rosaceagroup.org/The_Rosacea...hlight=Squigle

                          Have you thought about changing a toothbrush or toothpaste? The inappropriate ingredient of toothpaste is one of the most common reasons of allergic reaction. I also prefer using natural brushes, just like this bamboo toothbrush. It doesn't contain plastic and it's definitely better for those who have allergy.

                            I also used Squiggle, which you can buy from the Mouth Ulcers Shop website, which is a very mild toothpaste. However, now I prefer tea tree oil toothpaste (Desert Essence, Wintergreen):

                              This is actually a common problem. This is a simple irritation, so don't be panicked.
