When you burn your tongue, all you want is to know when it'll feel better. Burning your tongue is a common nuisance when you don't notice how hot your food or drink is before taking a bite or sip. It may even cause the papillae (the natural bumps on your tongue) to temporarily disappear. Not paying attention or neglecting to test your food and drinks before digging in is usually the cause, and it's easy to do.
An oral burn calls for a swift response if you want to ease the pain. Fortunately, there are several burning tongue remedies that can help next time a swig of steaming coffee or bite of pizza hits a nerve.
