It´s happened to me once. I don't dipped wintergreen and my gums were well
Put dip in other side in your mouth
Honestly, in my 27 years of dippin, dippin wintergreen full time tears my gums up. Stoker's LC Natty does too because it's so salty. I mainly dip Grizzly Snuff and Stocker's LC Natty. I pack 2 lips of Grizz Snuff in between each lip of Stoker's LC I pack. I have no lip/gum/mouth problems. Most of the guys I know that complain of lip/gum soreness dip wintergreens and mints on a daily basis. If you're just starting out... try using some pouches for healing time. Using pouches doesn't make you a "pussy". Hope you find your comfort zone, bro. Move it around like Dan said... don't dip in the same spot all the time.
