Can Eating Toothpaste Cause a Fever?

Answer

Eating toothpaste is not known to cause a fever, but it can cause other health issues. Swallowing toothpaste that contains fluoride can cause teeth to discolor permanently, cause stomach ailments, and cause skin rashes. Acute fluoride poisoning can occur from swallowing a huge amount of toothpaste, and can cause nausea, vomiting and flu-like symptoms.
