Hi. I am extremely chemically sensitive. I ordered the blotting toothbrush and have used one for three days. Each day after using, I am very sick and my mouth is extremely irritated. Is there any chemical additive, or antimicrobial on the bristles.
We re-confirmed with the manufacturer and the Blotting Brushes do not. Thanks for asking.
However, when you disturb an area which may contain bacteria, such as between the tooth and the gums, any kind of reaction could occur. You might try using a dental water irrigator on a LOW setting to clean out that space with pure water and see if you experience the same reaction.
