I've read mouthwashes containing alcohol can do more harm than good. The brand I've been using most recently contains alcohol and I've noticed since using it that my tongue and mouth feel drier than they should and my gums and insides of my cheeks feel irritated and sore. I've stopped using it as of today. How long would it take for my mouth to feel less dry and the irritation to go away? Is there anything I can do to soothe the discomfort or speed up that process?
