Can nicotine allergy caused numbness on tongue and mouth after kissing?

Dr. Grief. I am experiencing a new phenomena. I have French kissed someone and my tongue, mouth, lips and face around my lips feels as if I was exposed to something to which I am allergic. It feels like someone rubbed cat dander all over that area and he said he has no cats. I have relieved some of the pain by gargling with diluted solution of antiseptic. But my tongue and lips are still numb and my hard palate is swollen and tender. Could this happen if he smokes? I am extremely allergic to nicotine and do not use any drugs. Thank you.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

In smokers nicotine remain in mouth for few hours after last smoke. As your problem started after kissing a person who smoke and you already allergic to nicotine, then your current suffering more likely nicotine induced.

For management avoid kissing smoker and take antiallergics like cetrizine for brief duration along with multivitamina.

Wishing you good health and all the best.
