How does one feel with a dry mouth?
Lack of saliva makes the skin around the mouth dry and tight. Lips may become cracked and sores might form at the corners of your mouth. Your tongue may feel rough and dry and it may also be tough to talk and swallow. People with dry mouth often develop bad breath because the saliva isnt flushing their mouth of food particles and debris regularly. Dry mouth may also be the cause of that tickle in your throat.
