    Everytime when I go for a swim, after some time, some sticky white gluey "thingy" will start to form in the inside of my lips. Can anyone tell me what is that, and is it normal?

    Also, I find that swimming makes my teeth sensitive and my teeth will feel "funny" whenever I brush and sometimes, even eating? How come?

    Chlorine, I'd imagine.

    You see that pool attendant? You see he's got his right hand in his pocket? That's not the safety whistle he's touching.

    Anonymous, what do you mean? And to mipmapped, the pool I go to isn't really chlorinated. According to my mom, it was salinised?(mixed with salt instead of chlorine).

    Guys, I have a bigger problem now. My incisors (at the top jaw) is so sensitive that I can't even enjoy my dinner just now!:mad: Everytime I bite my food, I'll cringe! It's so annoying! And the worst thing is, it will lasts for a few days.

    Great, I can't really brush and eat properly!

    Anon 1, your sick man. If its salinated then its probably just the salts they use. Try a chlorinated pool.

    Algae? The pool is clean and yea, I don't remember seeing algae stuck on the floor of the pool or floating about lol! Besides, a lot of people use that pool.

    I don't think I can, because that pool is where I have my weekly swimming classes. Sigh~ What kind of salt can make my teeth so sensitive? And is there a way to eradicate the sensitivity? Or there's something wrong with my incisors? :eek:

    Sounds as if you may have tooth erosion perhaps associated with the use of acidic sports drinks and or chlorinated water in swimming pools
