Dry mouth
I suffer from a very dry mouth.
What is the cause as it seem that it only happens when I eat a lot
of oranges or take vitamin C tablets.
I would really appreciate your feedback.

Thank you
Rita

Rita, it might be due to a problem with your salivary glands. It might be due to a blockage, infection or even an auto-immune disease like Sjögren’s disease. The best would be to see your doctor and to have him sort it out for you. Good luck.
