    ok, this is a fairly annoying but very embarresing problem.

    everytime i sleep, i wake up with white marks around my mouth...due to me dribbling i think, in the night.
    i dont get why i do this, or how 2 stop. and when i sleep my mouth is always shut anyway also, i dont understand why my dribble goes WHITE!! :eek3: IT LOOKS DODGY!!

    ergh, its causing me probs, and i make up excuses 2 prevent me from going on over night trips/holidays/stays....

    TSR PLEASE HELP!! :woo:

    Why make excuses? Keep a pack of wet wipes by your bead and give your face a quick wipe in the morning when you wake up.

    Its normal, I used to do it as a kid.
    There are ways you could try prevent it though. Are you drinking enough water during the day? Try to drink 8 glasses or more if you don't already do so. Also, are your saliva glands over active? Do you sometimes dribble during the day? If so, see your GP.

    Well saliva doesn't turn white as far as I'm aware. Unless it's very dry. Drink more?

    ^ ouch, sticky situation

    .... it could be your toothpaste? I was getting annoying build ups from mcleans whitening toothpaste,
    switched back to colgate and problem was gone. I'd also try switching your diet around.

    If you left the dribble on your skin during the day, you would get white water marks.
    As it happens, you wouldn't walk about with dribble on your face during the day so you wipe it away.
    It is normal! I would increase how much you drink though, even if you are drinking enough. Some people require more water and this is what it sounds like to me.

    Saliva is salty ... when the water evaporates the salts get left behind at the corners of your mouth. Just lick it off when you wake up? It's already been in your mouth so what harm will it do going back in there?

    There are other much more important things that you could be worrying about.
