|"I was wondering if anyone has had swollen red lips that ooze and are so sore that they can hardly sleep...
This resulted when my husband made apples with Splenda. They were wonderful, but I suffered for four days. Then I ate some Carbolite candy and the next morning I had the same thing again.
The swollen lips turned into canker sores. I'm now at the beginning of recovery again. I will never eat Splenda again, and I will tell everyone of my experience.
Is there any way to get the Splenda out of my body faster? Will it eventually leave? I will do anything to rid my body of the effects of Splenda!"
On 3 April 2004, we received an update from P.H.:
"My mouth and lips are healing up. The inside of my mouth was the same bright red I saw on many of the pictures posted on the Internet--almost beet red."
On 10 April, 2004, we received another update:
"It took me about 5 or 6 days to get rid of the Splenda in my body and for my mouth to heal from the effects of the toxicity."
Thank you P.H. for sharing your story with our visitors.
