    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    slimy stuff
    karen021966 posted:
    For about 2 weeks every morning after I brush my teeth after about 20minutes I start to feel this stringy slimy stuff that I am able to pull out. It only seems to come after I brush and is only there for a while. It is not there all day and it doesnot return after I get it out. Would you please explain what this could be and how to get rid of it.

    Hi Karen,

    Have you changed any of the products you're using?

    I ask because I spotted this response from another member: check it out !

    I hope it helps.

    Hi Karen,

    If the other member's response that I linked wasn't helpful to you, the best thing you could do is see your medical provider for a direct examination and to start exploring what this is and to get - if necessary - treatment.
