    Angry Aarg! Help, swollen tongue - no taste, vaping just got bad

    Hi all, been a very happy newby and after a week my tongues swollen, can't taste properly. I was vaping LIQUA Ejuice Variety Pack from HealthCabin and all good. Then got some Peach Tea from VapeBar in Perth, which is delicious but after a day my tongue started to play up. Went back to LIQUA but no improvement. Can anyone advise? Starting to think about going back to smoking analogues..!

    Differences between the juices as far as VG / PG ratios possibly?

    get onto a VG heavy soup mate try 80/20 or maybe 70/30 the PG does that to a few people it makes my mouth dry as well

    My biggest fear is that I might die and my missus will sell my vape gear for what I told her it cost

    Had similar reactions to HC and HG nic and straight pg when I first started. I took a couple of antihistamines and a lot of water. Took a day or so to settle. Try some blue strepsils just to quieten things down.

    No I haven't heard of this before but it sounds like an allergy to something. The pg or vg or even the drip tip, maybey you got nic on your lips?

    This sounds like an allergic reaction to something, it may of course be unrelated to vaping but just chose now to surface.

    Step 1 -- seek immediate medical advice before your airways become compromised -- my tongue swells from some antibiotics before it starts causing swelling in my throat. Have you started any new medications herbal or prescription?.... discuss with the doctor while you are there.

    Step 2 -- start doing a processes of elimination for everything you have come in contact with recently -- have you eaten anything out of the ordinary, or was there a chance that something you have ingested may have contained or come in contact with a known allergen. (eg not all margarine is suitable for people with a peanut allergy) Have you started using new products around the house or worn new clothes without washing them 1st. Have you been gardening.... plants and insects could cause a reaction. Have you been bitten by by anything. etc...

    Step 3 -- if it is clear that e-cigarettes or e-liquid are the likely cause consider the make-up of your drip tip a lot of cheap chrome is plated nickel... change to plastic or delrin. The main carrier PG or VG might be causing an allergic response... try vaping straight VG and straight PG to eliminate them as the cause, it is extremely rare to be allergic to both..... Most toothpastes contain PG(its actually in a lot of products as well as food). The flavour may contain a known allergen... try a different flavour.


    Best of luck I hope this helps

    Something else to consider.....
    Have you eaten anything that contains Pine Nuts...... this mainly effects taste only but search for "Pine Mouth" while it can be distressing if undiagnosed, it is really more of an annoyance.

    Is there many options for a mainly VG based juice I know vaping cobra do VG juice but then youd have to mix your own nic what about the pre mixes any over seas options, I don't get those symtoms but I'm very new to vaping but I'd be interested to know.
