This is probably a weird question, but I could use some input on this..
I've got a modified pacifier, and as I'm not terribly attached to it, I don't use it very often. I used to, but because I got it in my head that it would ruin my teeth (will it?), I stopped.
Anyway. I used to have another one, but after I used it one night and got a pretty bad case of sore throat, I decided it had come in contact with something it shouldn't, and tried to boil it. It didn't help, and I eventually threw it out.
The same thing is happening with the one I've got now; all of a sudden it makes my throat sore to use it, and I get this aftertaste of rubber in my mouth.. I clean it regularly, and keep it in a little box when it's not in use.
I'd rather not throw it out, so I was wondering if any of you had any ideas what the cause might be, or how I could fix it?
