Did you know that oestrogen is partially responsible for keeping your mouth moisturised?

    I have a dry, irritated sore mouth. My Cheeks burn. I think these are menopause symptoms.

      Hi Lisa Some people find a zinc supplement 15mg can help with a sore mouth and you could add in a Sea Buckthorn Capsule for the dryness. Skin gets a lot more sensitive in the menopause so just check that the soap/face creams etc don't contain a lot of chemicals, sometimes using natural or organic products can make a difference.

      Hi Wendy Hopefully the tips above will help but do check with your doctor as well especially if it is affecting your swallowing.
