    I had problems with the VG from one vendor. It caused me to have breakouts and a seriously heavy feeling in my chest. I don't order from them anymore and haven't had the problem since. If a juice is giving you problems, order from somewhere else. It could be the PG or the VG that vendor uses.

    Yes symptoms of PG allergies can be really nasty from severe headaches, scratchy throat to sinus problems and feeling of nausea. There are also cases where people felt numbness in the face and tongue along with swelling and rashes in the area. But one must first find out whether the symptoms are the result of nicotine overdose. Once you are certain that the symptoms are due to PG sensitivity, you can opt for 100percent VG based e-liquids rather than a vg/pg mix. Sometimes allergic symptoms are also caused due to flavorings or other added chemicals.

    I believe the sensitive teeth and mouth sores (and possibly others) issues to be due to nicotine rather than PG. I have suffered the same issues in the past when using nicotine gum. PG is thinner, making for a better carrier of nicotine to your tissues. The answer to these problems for me was to dilute my juice with more PG from 24 mg nic to 16 or18.

    VG is too thick and nasty for my taste. It makes me choke and cough, probably due to the increased size of the droplets in the mist. I also have to increase the nic strength to get the same satisfaction that I receive when using lower strength juice with the PG. More nic also affects my pocketbook.

    Smoking pg mlb 24 strength juice for a week now.
    I'm with the program full ahead,no cigarettes and will wear depends if needed as going back to regular cigarettes is not an option. In over 45 years I have never been able to quit smoking more that a few hours at a time. So I guess my question is,,is this common? does it pass? should I use another type of juice.
    Damn this is a humiliating thing to ask.
    Any advice welcome ty George
    Yeah this is common to quitting smoking. I've attempted to quit 4 times over the past 25 years (including 3 patch fiascos) and each time I had that problem for a short time. Chronic constipation is another "side effect" of quitting so yer sol either way. Nicotine has a natural laxative effect so you could try reducing your nic content for a bit.

    Drink more water! Believe it or not vaping has a diuretic effect much like tea and coffee. Add more water intake and get some good skin lotion.

Does this sound right? IS it sensitivity? I have been vaping about 9 months, mostly 70/30 niquids. It took about three months for this problem to show up, and, as I said, it is not all vendors or liquids. At first I thought it might be the diacetyl used in some flavorings, as inhaling it can cause "popcorn lung" according to what I read online at Wikipedia, under "worker's safety".
    PG is a used in a lot of cooking sprays so .. yup, lose the VG. I can't use the cooking sprays anymore myself (unless i hold the pan and can outside with me inside) since I cooked in my sister's restaurant for a couple of years. Not near as bad as you though, stuff just makes me cough and feel nauseous.
