Could this be sclero related?

Are you taking a multivitamin? My mom was taking a muliti-vitamin and her gums became sensitive and bleedy. Our dentist said it was the vitamin "A" in her multi-vitamin. My mom stopped the vitamin and her gums got better.

I do get sensitive gums too - yes, the burning. I also get sensitive , burning, itchy skin which especially hurts in the shower!
I use a toothpaste for sensitive teeth and a soft toothbrush, which has helped. I'll have to look into the mouthwash. Thanks for the info Sadie and Peggy.

Right now, I'm also battling a narrowing intestine. I don't have a colon due to ulcerative colitis years ago, (right before the Raynaud's started hummm) and my small intestine is acting up now. Some days it seems like one thing clears up, which leaves a hole for something else to flare...sorry to sound "woe is me" (again!) if you met me, you'd say (LOL) "Wow, you don't look sick"...we've al been there done that right!? Peace out everyone...and thanks again, I'll make a dental appt.

Anyway, on to the gums topic, I don't have gum sensitivity but I do get painful sores in my mouth on the inside of my lower lip. I have one now that I inadvertantly keep biting which isn't helping it heal. Gotta stay away from salty food until it heals.
