    Am I damaging my throat by using Listerine?

    I am wondering if I am causing damage to my throat by gargling with listerine.

    Hi KevinLA,
    I use Listerine but with a plastic syringe. I apply it to my gums and tongue. I also found it relieves my burning tongue. If you are concerned about it bothering your throat (I never had any problems when I gargled) then ask your dentist or hygenist for one of those plastic syringes (mine is called Monoject).

    Addition: some people use the non alcoholic mouthwashes like Biotene. This can be an alternative for you. I tried it but it did not help my burning tongue.
