This is a wierd question, one my doctor couldn't answer (Granted I only saw one, but whatever) - ever since getting into a relationship with my current partner we've had a wierd problem.Whenever I kiss them they experience what can only really be described as 'stingy' or 'sore' lips, it only happens when they kiss me and this has always been a problem since we got together.Its not relationship breaking by no means, infact were now engaged - this is merely something thats praying on my mind more than theirs but its something that I really really want to get sorted because i'm constantly self-conscious about it...I tried chapstick but that only fixes the problem temporarily and it has no effect on tongue kissing. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing it and if so, any ideas on how it might be fixed?Cheers, Zeyto
Welcome to A2A, Zeyto. This is a challenging problem!I presume that you've touched before you kissed, so it's not static electricity? In which case it seems to be some sort of incompatibility of your saliva with them - perhaps some sort of allergy on their part - or perhaps a psychological issue on their part?
I get sore and puffy lips/mouth when I kiss my bf when he has eaten beef or fish or anything I am highly allergic to :frowning: It does sting and itch for a few days and I have also found rashes on my face and body along with sore lips.
I have food allergies......I often take anti-histamine pills or hydro-cortisone injections for my allergies.
I dont think I am allergic to my bf but his diet contains stuff I am allergic to. My body reacts badly to his saliva and semen.
You could ask your bf if he is allergic to something.
My first thought was it could be an allergy, they're allergic to uncooked tomatoes and alcohol but its not like im eating them or drinking constantly on a day to day basis, they never had this problem before with previous partners which makes it even wierder.I guess it must just be my saliva, but... what can be done about it? Any chance I can change the pH component of my saliva? :P
I originally thought of the pH of your saliva, but it seeems very unlikely that it could be so far off normal to cause tingling to another's lips but no problem for the inside of your mouth.But perhaps you could get some pH paper and test it. You could probably get some from a school chemistry teacher, or from a pool shop.
