I dont remember where I learned this one, but take a sugar packet and empty it on the burned part of your tongue. Let it dissolve. The pain will be gone. Try it---it works every time, but I dont know why, After that I try to go easy with the temp of my food for a few days.
u have a good excuse to have an extra ice cream or two =) it will heal by itself just avoid hot foods and drinks for a while and take more cold items such as cold juices and ice. it should be gone in a day or two.
Yes, I agree with KnittyKitty. Sugar works like a charm to stop the pain and start the healing. But you have to do it immediately. Simply sprinkle a thick layer on the burn. It the burn is on the roof of your mouth, sprinkle the sugar on your tongue and transfer it there with the help of your tongue. Allow the sugar to melt and you should begin to start feeling better. You can repeat the process if necessary.
Whenever I burn my tongue, I find that sticking out the part that hurts and leaving it out of my mouth allows it not to hurt as much as when I keep my tongue in my mouth. My guess is that it's because the outside air is cooler. Although it might look silly going outside with your tongue sticking out the whole time. : )
YES. Many good ideas here. The one component to add/remember--which doesn't take much effort, to remember/train your reflexes--apply cooling within first 5 seconds. All/any burns, if iced (&/or exposed to cold water immediately) seem to heal remarkably quickly... Even if tx'd for only a few moments. Minutes. (Which can seem an eternity.) As for "last night", well, I guess time, patience, & TLC. & Don't forget hydration, daily multi-vit., & move. Motion. Walk. Stand up every 20 minutes (at least). Breathe. Sleep/rest (enough). Love, laugh, & hooray it wasn't worse ;)
there is nothing you can do , due to the fact that you have burnt a very sensitive thing in your mouth the healing process will be a few days so try little things like ice water, ice cream, ice cubes, anything cold , even the sugar packet theory
Ice chips soothe the tongue (as do snow cones, ice cream, malted milk shakes, cold drinks). Hydrogen peroxide debrides (removes damaged tissue from around the wound), kills bacteria and prevents infection. Follow label directions for mixing it with water. It has a clean-feeling foaming effect that some people find soothing. If your tongue really hurts, there is a special mouth wash that soothes the mouth and relieves pain (look for Oral B or Crest, it comes in a smallish opaque white bottle). Then there are mouth pain relievers. Ambusol has one, but Orajel mouth sore pain relief gel (blue tube) is really good. I recently tried it and it was very soothing.
