Question: itchy gums

okin - Sun Mar 02, 2003 9:38 pm

for the last four days my gums have been driving me crazy by Itching... I did not burn them or damage them in any way, if im allergic to something it beats me what it could getting small, barelly visible sores, they Itch the most between teeth...if I wash with listerine or brush my teeth it makes it better for a while but as soon as I eat something or just wait half hour they start Itching again.... can anyone help me ?

Since I can remember, I've always had Itchy gums. Only in certain spots in my mouth though. They feel like mosquito bites and when they Itch bad, I scratch & poke them with things. I wake up scratching them in my sleep with my fingernails. I Itch them until they bleed and are raw. I have had dental work to fix where I have "scratched away" the gums. No doctors or dentists could ever help me.
