    Default Symptoms of PG Allergies and Sensitivity

    PG reactions do NOt always happen right away. It may take some time for the PG to build up in your system.

    I get choked up and get hives from the PG vapors from the smoke machines they use at clubs so I had a feeling I may be allergic.

    To others who had allergic reaction.. how long after starting e-cigs did u get it? What happened to you? What liquid were you using?

    My reaction was...

    hives on upper body (mostly arms and waist... I remember someone else had it on the waist)

    sensitive teeth (to an EXTREME). Could not open my mouth outside because the AIR hurt my teeth!

    sore gums and roof of mouth (so bad I had an icepack on my face cause I couldn't put anything cold in my mouth cause my teeth were so sensitive!!!)

    mild difficulty breathing

    sporadic neck and back pains coming in sharp waves with movement

    mouth sores (may be a symptom of quitting a smoking)

    sore throat

    joint pains

    Please add any symptoms you had in the thread!

    OMG, all along I thought it's been the VG doing some of these things to me, it's the PG. I've have the sore gums. Sensitive teeth.
    I have to clear my throat all the time. I have joint pain but I am 50 years old so I don't know if I can count that. Since I thought It was the VG I increased the PG and wondered why I was feeling worse.
    Thank you for this information.

    One important side effect from PG that I have noticed are muscle aches, especially in legs and arms. But I don't think this is an allergy indicator, PG breaks down into lactic acid, which is a main cause of muscle aches you get after hard physical activity.
    Also, sore gums and sensitive teeth are indicative for people who stop smoking cigarettes, and aren't necessary caused by PG allergy. Choking sensation on the other hand is much more likely to be caused by it.

    I get unbelievably dry skin especially on my hands.
    I think it's the PG because when I started I was, by chance, on VG because that's just what I happened to buy and I don't recall having any issues.
    Now-a-days, I use PG mostly because it's difficult to get decent flavours in VG.
    It was getting so bad that the skin on the tips of my fingers was starting to split.

    Anyhow, I've been using e-cigs less frequently recently, in fact I went for two weeks without using them at all and the dryness completely went away. But today - on receipt of my new e-pipe(!) - I've been blasting away and, in under three hours, the back of my hands are already showing scaling from dryness. The e-pipe has come with PG cartridges (I assume).

    What I don't know is whether this dryness is from inhaling the PG or from exhaling it and it just happening to hit my hands from the environment. I don't have any of the usual allergic reactions that people talk about so I'm fairly sure I'm not allergic to it - my skin just seems unusually sensitive to it.

    Mine is simply increased mucus production in the sinuses and irritating sores inside the nostrils. I am not certain if it is really a histiminic allergic reaction, though, as I can reduce the amount of PG (DIY Juice) to about 1/3 of the juice and the problem clears up. If it was truly an allergic reaction, it wouldn't care if it was diluted or not.
    Doctor Jello will see you now. Mwahahaha. You want me to squirt this WHERE?????

    It is not uncommon to experience this with VG as well.
