Does Your Skin Taste Salty?


Recommended Posts

I've really been loading up on salt over the past few weeks since my POTS has been acting up. Sometimes I chew on my nails (without actually biting them) and I started noticing that my finger tasted really salty. I don't remember this before. I thought maybe this was one of the lotions I was using, but I just got out of the shower and tasted like salt even before I put on any lotion. I guess these days I literally have salt oozing out of my pores, LOL! Have any of you noticed this? or is it just me?

:blink: .."it's just you!"

I am teasing, I think it is normal even for non-pots folks, to experience the saltiness that you ask about.

not to worry, you are normal.

I'm sure that this is NOT a concern for you (especially since you only noticed the saltiness since upping your salt intake), but thought I'd mention it. Salty tasting skin is a symptom of cystic fibrosis.
