I'm so dumb!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My lips felt dry and I think I'm getting a cold sore in the corner: either that or a pimple. I decided to put some Blistex ointment on.

As I was rubbing it in well, I noticed that it tasted kind of minty and about a minute later my lips started to feel tingly.

I looked at the tube of Blistex because I had never had that kind of reaction from it before, only to notice that I slathered my mouth with Oragel; that stuff that you use to freeze gums during infant teething or toothaches!

I went and washed my face, but the damage was done. My lips and tongue are sufficiently numb!

Should wear off in 10 to 15 minutes, though, right? Or at least it does for me, the stuff is practically useless.

At least it was just Oragel, what if it had been something gross like a tube of hydrocortisone cream?

Or Preparation H!

The numbness is almost gone. Just a wee bit left on my upper lip.

I use Oragel to freeze my ingrown toenail so that I can work on the corner. I forgot to put it back in the medicine cabinet when I was done, and the tube is the same size as the Blistex one. I wasn't really paying attention because I was watching a movie. That will teach me to blindly put on lip balm!

Welcome to the I-shoulda-looked-first club. I entered it when my deodarant ran out and I had to use the one at my health club. Trouble is, they have deodorant and hairspray pumps next to each other. So, I hair sprayed my underarms which is, of course, hysterical because I get waxed.

Well, at least I didn't spray the deodorant on my hair.

That's as bad as me washing my hair with cream rinse and thinking the shampoo was really, really crummy. It wouldn't have been so bad had I not taken it back to Shopper's Drug Mart for a refund

I have washed my hair with shower gel a few times when I haven't taken much notice of the label It still made my hair clean and shiny!

I had something like that but it began with a T. I used to put it on my lip for a numb feeling, but usually ended up licking it somehow and then my tongue would end up numb. It was a funny sensation

I once accidentally 'washed' my face with cream rinse. I was quite sleepy that morning...

Well, at least you would have had really nice smelling hair! And your head would have stayed dry, too!

Hey, I have used liquid dish suds in the dishwasher before. I was a teenager and I used the logic that, "since we are out of dish washer powder, and the liquid suds say that they are for dishes...should work...right?"

Mom and Dad came home to knee-high suds in the kitchen and a rather panicked looking daughter....oops

All I can add to this thread is that I shouldn't have been eating while reading it!

I should have known better: I just did it recently, at the age of 49. At least you were only a teenage, who didn't know any better!

It was the same situation: I ran out of dishwasher gel, and figured that just a little dishwashing detergent wouldn't make a lot of suds. Boy - was I wrong! I spent 3 hours cleaning up suds, after having to run the rinse cycle repeatedly to eliminate them all. It WON'T happen again!

Too funny!!

One time I rubbed a solid perfume all over my lips when I thought I was putting lip balm on because the Lush tins of lip balm and solid perfume are the same shape and size

I once used cocktail sauce instead of a marinated by mistake. Cocktail sauce appaerntly burns in the stove.
