    I taste perfume

    Im having a weird issue of having the taste of prefume in my mouth. I woke up this way. I have not been able to get the taste out. I have not started any new medication, and I have tried to pinpoint to where it came from. Its driving me nuts

    Hi Longwalk,

    It's now a day later, has the taste eased after a day of eating/drinking, teeth-brushing, etc.?

    The taste is getting lighter. I was at the doctors yesterday so I thought to ask about this issue as well. He said it is probably a virus. He said he would do nothing initially except "watch" it. If it did not subside in a week or two, then he would check for some other things. Overall, I am very healthy even though I am overweight. So, this issue was concerning since I could not pin point it's origin.

    I'm glad you spoke with your doctor and the two of you will be monitoring this, Longwalk.
