    Are you new to vaping Scott? As when you quit cigs it can cause that, also you need more water :-)


    If not I apologise for assuming and I dont know lol

    I've never suffered from it personally but possible effects 'could' be -

    Very hot drip tip due to sub ohming etc'.
    Letting someone try your gear who's a scabby shit.
    Not cleaning the drip tip.
    Allergy towards SS.
    A bit of high nic juice on the end of the drip tip.
    An allergy towards PG.
    You're getting a cold sore coming.

    Can't think of anything else it can be.

    One of my coworkers gets this with juice that doesn't agree with her. She's a regular Hangsen user, and I gave her a bit of some better stuff to try, hoping to convert her to better quality juices. She broke out in sores in her mouth and on her lips. She had that with another brand she tried once, too. I think it has to do with being allergic to PG, as the one I gave her was a high PG mix. (she uses a standard ego kit with a disposable C5)

    What he Said!!! I switched to 50/50 mix ages ago because when I used a high PG content liquid I used to get cracked lips and a sore throat!!!:hugs:

    Could be pg
    I find stainless tips condense juice on the inside and every so often you end up with a spatter of liquid either on your lip or in your mouth
    Finding PTFE tips much better but texture may take awhile to get used to
