I had oral laser gum surgery, rinsed with chlorhexidine gluconate, suffered alergic reaction and still have irritated mouth tissue, loss of taste 2 months after
This from the FDA Chlorhexidine monograph https://www.drugs.com/pro/periogard.html
"Some patients may experience an alteration in taste perception while undergoing treatment with a chlorhexidine gluconate oral rinse. Rare instances of permanent taste alteration following chlorhexidine gluconate oral rinse use have been reported via postmarketing surveillance. "
I would see your dentist or Oral surgeon.
