Helps your mouth recover and eases the pain
Member Name: KaribouFluff
Advantages: Helps mouth ulcers heal quicker
Disadvantages: very strong taste - burns the tongue a bit, discolouration of teeth if you use it too often
I often find that if I'm run down, or if I need a new toothbrush, that I start to get mouth ulcers which are painful and mean that I can't eat salty foods without it stinging! If this happens, I use Corsodyl mint mouthwash.
Now if you're not using the 'daily' version - i.e. you're using the more potent version which I use intermittently to help my mouth recover from ulcers, then you can't really use this type of Corsodyl every day as it can cause discolouration to your teeth. Also, you should use it at least 10 mins after brushing to avoid discolouration.
I must admit, that I find the taste rather strong - and it advises you on the bottle that you can mix it with a little water if you find it a bit too much. It's fine when I'm swilling it around my mouth (which they advise you to do for around a minute) it's just afterwards I feel like my tongue is burning a bit and often have to have a sip of cold water to ease the sensation. The taste is minty and isn't offensive, just very strong!
I do find that Corsodyl really helps my mouth to recover from ulcers, and prevents my gums becoming sore when I start using a new toothbrush. I'd recommend to anyone to have a bottle in for incase your mouth becomes sore, as it will mean your ulcers will heal in around half the time (as opposed to if you leave them untreated) - well, this is what I have found anyway.
Summary: Mouthwash to be used to treat mouth ulcers and bleeding gums - rather than a daily mouthwash
