You probably have a touch of oral thrush from the inhaler. Use a spacer with the inhaler if you can and make sure you rinse your mouth every time you use the inhaler. My mouth reacts with certain foods when i get thrush and it is a well known side effect of steroid inhalers. Your doctor can prescribe nystatin for oral thrush.
