What is this taste in my mouth?

I am just getting over from a small cold..
Yesterday I noticed I have a sweet taste/smell in my mouth..
It reminds me of the taste of the brown coating on advil, but I havent had any at all. I only took regular Tylenol to sleep (to dull the headache) at night 2x.

Anyone ever had this happen?
What is it?

  • I wouldn't worry too much since your getting over an illness. When you start eating normal again I believe it will go away and if not then you need to seek medical help.

  • You'll be ok, your body isn't well yet, & it takes awhile to flush out the drugs, they're toxic to our system.. cleanse with fruits and veggies and I bet it'll go away :)

  • yes im eating normally really.. and not taking anything meds... like ive mentioned in the last week ive been sick I took 2 tylenol - no coating on them..
    the smell is very sweet.. its nice lol... but it does bother my taste when eating other food..

    my hubby says i have a sinus infection but why would it be sweet?
