sensitivity to PG???
« on: March 26, 2013, 06:24:55 PM »
Could someone help please?
Looks like I have some sensitivity to PG, , using it about 10-14 days and after about day 3 started having strong pains in my gum and teeth hasnt stopped since also got ulcers. I enjoy vaping so dont want to give up never mention the investment I made in the product. Heard PEG 400 could be used instead. But cant find it here. Do I need to change my nicotine too? Atm Im using platinum ice with pg ag mix (80/20 ratio) plus flavour.
The other thing is that I can't seem to put it down is it normal?
Thanks

The only advise I could give is try making it to a 50/50 mix and possibly lower the nic strength. You will get less of a throat hit though. Still that's how I tend to make my mixes. U get a lot more vapour though. Lol

Too Vape or not to Vape? Sod it, I'll Vape!!!

People often suffer with sensitive teeth and gums when they stop using tobacco, and usually gets better after 3 or 4 weeks and some dental care, so it may not be caused by PG, although a heavier mix of AG might help.

Which PV do you have and what ohms atomiser are you using?

PV = Personal Vaporizer (or ecig)

Ok DCT's are low resistance atomisers so they run much hotter, they tend to be a little harsh (hence why they are not my cup of tea, lol) and it could be this that is causing the ulcers.

I stopped smoking for 5 years back in the 90's, and I had a terrible time with my teeth, my dentist asked me if I had recently stopped smoking. He told me that smoking masked a lot of tooth problems that starts to reveal themselves when full blood-flow returned to the teeth.
Happy Vaping!!!  Jeff

sorry to hear bout the dental issues...

one thing strikes me tho - brushing at least 6 times a day has GOT to irritate gums i would think.... they are quite sensitive ..... maybe you should have a word with a dentist like astrecks mentions.....


disappears in a puff of vapour......

I think I have a different issue with PG, some sort of over sensitivity in the throat.

 When I first got my Odyssey, I really struggled, despite being used to the harshest of analogues, I couldn't take a draw from it with pre mixed with out really coughing and spluttering. I gave up for a while until recently when the analogues really had to go. After reading some advice here, I got a T Ice mixing kit, VG type, with AG dilutent. The only PG in the mix was the flavour at 20%. This works really well for me. I can take a nice draw with a little throat hit, but no coughing.

My problem is maybe different than yours, just putting the info out there.  :)

Ohh I see I need strong throat hit tho even with 80% pg still could go stronger hence why I was thinking of the peg 400.  Plus vg would be too sweet I think. But def wont give up as ecig so much better the other one.

Might be worth looking at a VV device? I've lowered my mixes to just 15% PG (just the flavour) as I was allergic to it, a VV helps with the throat hit.
