  • There are many reasons for a salty mouth condition. Some of them are -

    (1) Acid reflex from stomach - Many people have an acid reflex or return coming up from the stomach and it gives a feeling of salty taste in the throat or mouth. This is known as acidity also. Doctors generally prescribe antacid or antiflatulent for this like the Pentocid in your case.

    (2) Slight bleeding in mouth - Sometimes gums or other soft parts in the throat may bleed and this blood may give that particular taste. One has to consult a doctor who can give proper medication in such conditions.

    (3) Dehydration - Dehydration can also cause such dry salty taste in the mouth and one has to take good intake of water to avoid this. A prolonged condition of dehydration calls for a medical advice.

    (4) Sinus infection - Many times the fluid from the nose deposits in the sinus area and comes to throat and mixes with saliva to give a salty taste. This is very common in people having problems of cough and cold and sinus allergies. This is easily cured with over the counter anti allergy and anti cold drugs. Still it is advisable to take medical advice.

    Home remedies:
    One should drink plenty of water which will keep the body hydrated.

    Avoid taking coffee, juices, tomatoes, cinnamon, hot and spicy food etc.

    Time to time washing the mouth with water.

    Try changing the toothpaste also.

    Knowledge is power.

This will improve your digestion and improve Homoglonobile - content in the blood due to several anti- oxidants present in it such as Iron, Folic - acid, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin-6 apart from calcium and magnesium.
    2) If a mixture of Amla and Guduchi taken in equal amount say around 1/2 tea - spoon along with hot water twice after the meal will alleviate the acid problem apart from boosting the immunity - symptom.
    3) Ensure that you are not dehydrated and consume around 2. 5 litre of water per day so that you may not feel the bad taste in the mouth.
    4) Include Apple, Orange, Kiwi, Apricot and some amount of dry - fruits such as Almond, Walnuts etc for toning up your immunity - system.
    5) Prior to retirement to bed, brush up your teeth regularly so that acid is not generated due to entrapping of food - particles.
