does showering with salty water cause salty mouth i live in mexico and the water is salty.
It is not likely that your shower water affects the taste in your mouth. The body usually does a very good job at controlling the amount of salt in our blood and our saliva, even when what you drink is very salty.
A salty taste, however, is sometimes described by patients with infected teeth (often with a draining sinus tract, also known as a parulis or gumboil) or patients with burning mouth syndrome. Your dentist would be the person to help you determine what may be causing or contributing to your salty mouth.
