Talking of medical symptoms my son shocked us this morning on his Skype call .

Said he ended up last night in hospital after brushing his teeth !

 

Interesting!  I use an Oral B toothbrush.. but my toothpaste is always Sensodyne.  It has kept me pain free since my Dentist refused to see me at the beginning of lockdown .. because I was over 70.

DAVIDW     it sounds like your son had a allergic reaction to this toothpaste, you can get a  allergic reaction to lots of things even if you have been useing it for a long time.   Gertie my mother in law lost her sense of smell, and while cleaning her oven with spray inhaled some of the cleaning product, well what a mess her face was in, you could not see her eyes her face was that swollen, 999 was called and straight to hospltal.    In hairdressing a lot of people have there hair tinted (dye)  in a permanent colour it will normaly contain Para  some people are allergic to this and you should do a patch/skin test before  any colour hias been put on the scalp. This is not just a new cutomer as even if you have had your hair tinted in the past, you can still get an allergy reaction.   Belive or not this allergic reaction can be life threatening.

Thanks Mary , yes it would appear it was an allergic reaction but it upset his 10 year old daughter seeing her dad unable to speak properly and in a panicky state.

Don't they use peroxide in these whitening toothpastes ?

 

The one he used was called Oral B 3D Whitening Toothpaste

Mary the allergic reaction in hairdressing is parapheline diamine, if I remember they were the correct spelling. They stuck in my mind when I knew and thankfully they were the answers for C&G.I still look for ingredients that may be harmful on products.

Yes nonnaB your right but when i put the post on site I just could not find correct spelling. But Hay --Ho at least folks have an idea why we do skin/patch test now for coours.

 

DavidW Peroxide is just a deveoping agent  in hair dressing it opens the cutical so the colour can develop.

ps colour not coours.

 

Just a little more about Peroxide the hair tint is mixed with hydrogen peroxide as it assists penetration into the hair, but gives immediate oxidation of the colour and this is used to ensure permanence.  To put it in simple terms Peroxide is a developer, mild bleach agent, and it is also used for cleaning, it will also lift colour, depending on what strenth you use. eg. 10vol 20vlo 30vol 40vol and when I last worked 60volume which was mixed with what we called High lift tints,  before  High Lift tints came along hairdresses used powder bleach,  High/lift tints were a good sales ploy as a lot of clients wanted there hair very light blonde, but did not want it bleached.

ps DavidW I went to see my dentis and my teeth not being dead white he gave me a very light peroxide treatment.

Change of subject.,

Just had a phone call inviting me for me 2nd jab next Saturday. Earlier today, 'er indoors had a call for 2nd jab at 12.43 same day. Mine is 15.07, but the nice lady said if I go along at the same time as my wife, I can be done at the same time.  ( didn't fancy 2 trips or sitting there for 3 hours). Interestingly, my 1st appointment was 3 weeks after Tina. So she will be 11 weeks between and mine 8 weeks.

My toothpaste has been prescribed by my dentist. It's Durophat , I'm led to believe it's about £9.00 or more per tube (a small tube at that). Dentist prescribed 6 tubes at a time.

Hope it's on prescription. Some of our medications are free but others we pay a " ticket" which is a small charge. I use sensodyne too and it's more expensive than most toothpastes.

£9 00 for a small tube of toothpaste  you must have Gold teeth Big ears , or maybe a wolf in sheeps cothing  (Little Red Ridding Hood) quote Big-ears  what beautiful  teeth you have !!!     all the better to eat you with my dear.

No Mary1947,  it's a special medicated toothpaste. Not been able to visit me dentist for a year now, but when I get jab 2 next week, I will be able to make an appointment. Problem is, public transport to Lewes then stand outside until called in. Not been on a bus for a year and I don't fancy standing outside in the cold. ( As long as I don't get another Government letter !)

Did you all complete your census either on line or paper copy?

I don't fill one out as I fundamentally object to a massive government department/quango spending a fortune collecting information that they already have or is of no use whatever and that will never be used for any useful purpose.

Senseless I call it.

Thought it was unlawful not to do it Oz.

Yes it is Beekay. After sending round a census official to collect the form a couple of times and me telling them i am not filling it out they usually send a supervisor. I politely and respectfully let them in and tell them that as a taxpayer I object to a government department spending many millions of my money collecting information that they already have on various federal, state and local government data bases. They usually reply that privacy provisions prevent them accessing this data. I respond by saying I will give them permission to access this data for census reasons. That is the last I hear from them.

Yes I have Mary. Seeing the house floating down the river was tragic for the couple . This is not an unusual occurrence as many houses of weatherboard or fibro cement construction are built on brick piers and can just float away if not anchored to the ground.  This rain event started in far northern Queensland and has traveled down the east coast and is now impacting the Illawarra region south of Wollongong. It has covered a distance of nearly 3,000 km and in some cases dumped 300mm (1 foot) of rain in 24 hours. It looks like they are going to get some more today and will take many days or weeks to repair damaged infrastructure. Thankfully to date there has been no loss of life but many still make attempts to cross flooded areas.

Advantage of living on a boat... Saying that though the Trent only came up 7 foot last month... But what ever it does I'm on top of it

That's okay as long as your mooring lines are intact. If they come loose or snap and the river is running, you could end up anywhere.

On a lesser scale, we were moored on the Llangollen canal, having lunch. A hire boat came rushing by and caused us to lose our mooring pins. We finished up broadside across the cut and wedged in the banks.
