Listerine Total Care will burn the inside of your mouth

I have tried both Listerine Total Care mouthwash and ACT Restoring Mouthwash.  They are anticavity mouthwashes that contain Sodium fluoride as the active ingredient.  Like toothbrushes, I do not know if one helps your teeth more than another but I can tell you this, Listerine Total Care burned the inside of my mouth and probably would do the same to yours too.

The burn resulted in peeling inside my mouth;  I could feel a layer of skin in my mouth flapping back and forth when I put my tongue to it.  Sometimes I would get a white filmy layer of residue inside my mouth from using the mouthwash and I would have to use my fingers or tongue to pick it out of my mouth.

Sodium laurly sulfate and phophoric acid is listed on the back of the bottle as inactive ingredients.  I’m no scientist but I believe one or both of them is causing the burn.  I do not recommend Listerine Total Care at all.  It might be a sodium fluoride mouthwash that does its job well but the side effects are just too much.
