Title: Snus lesions
Post by: Newbee on November 12, 2011, 02:22:37 AM
Hi again,
So I posted a thread due to a red area on my upper lip where I put the snus occasionally . Now the red area is gone and there is a whiter area and a little rough. What's weird is it's not like that anywhere else that i put the snus. I have been using thunder frosted portions. Is this normal or something bad ? I do switch sides often bc I had a lesion in my cheek where I had kept my chew all the time. Has anyone experienced this ? Is this the snus lesions they talk about and it it worrisome? Thanks all!!!!

Most users of snus develop a lesion where the tobacco is placed, including myself. I wouldn't worry about it. In fact, see it as a badge of manliness. Haha.

Prob due to the saltiness of the snus. I wouldn't worry.

So how long dud it take for some of you to develop the snus lesions? I am just wandering if this is a real snus lesions or irritation. I have only been using snus for about a month and a half and I change places of the portions often.

I have been using snus for about 1 1/2 years and haven't had any lesions from snus.... I have had irritation if I keep putting snus in the same side in the same place over and over agian and not rotate....

I would say it is just irritation, Just because you are changing places where you put your snus does not mean you won't get irritation.... Your lip and gums will get used to it over time and tuffen up.... How much time depends from person to person.... For me it took about 2 months or so, But like I said above I still get it from time to time....

I got one too. It starts off as "geezer lip" (where your lip gets wrinkled out due to salt), then it starts to wear your skin out. Yeah it is from the salt as I was doin General Lös and The Rape`alot during that time, which are salty snus, and I could keep a prilla in for like 2 hrs. I tried the other cheek and couldnt hold a prilla for shit. I started using Roda which is less salty and its gone away since. Now its back to the previous two.

It's probably just irritation.
I've never had a lesion but I have had some irritation, especially if you use a lot of white portions or lös.

This page has a wealth of information on the subject:

Remember, physical irritation alone does not increase the risk of cancer -- TSNAs do. For example, scratching a specific portion of your arm on a daily, constant basis will not increase the risk of cancer on the area.

Thanks everyone. Now my lower lip where I have been keeping the thunder portions ha become white and wrinkled. I have only been snusing for 2 months. Would this be considered a snus lesion or just irritation from the salt and nicotine in the thunder? I know both our harmless but it seemed to take years to get this type of irritation with my Copenhagen and I used lOose and not Portions.

Your gums are taking a long time to get used to snus. Be careful. White gums, lesions, If you start coughing alot it could be the aids

The aids!? OH NOES!
Wrinkled gums is just because the salt. It's just pickling your gums. You'll get used to it to the point where the only times that happens is when you have a fat prilla of lös in for way too long.

I do move it around often but I still I am getting the white wrinkled look to my gums and inside if my lip and cheeks. Do you think the salt is causig it or the high nicotine content in the thunder? Should I switch up brands?

It's the salt. How long do you leave it in for? Is it lös or portions?

I use thunder portions and keep them about a hour sometime longer. My cheek also rougher . I don't upper deck it that feels weird.

So you put portions in the lower lip. Usually in the upper lip you should need to leave it ever for 2.5-3 hours to get the gator lip on a constant basis.
If you are using it at th bottom lip you are pulling more salt out of the portions because your salivary glands are located on the bottom. If you've noticed it juices like crazy in the bottom, but won't juice as much up top.

That is the only reason I could think f that you would be getting gator lip. Your mouth should get used to it. So I don't think you should be worried.

There's the problem, snus isn't meant for lower.
