Please elaborate: What exactly did you do to cause such damage? Is it physical or chemical in nature? If more info was included, a better answer could be given. Make an appointment with an ENT.

large taste buds: The taste buds at the back of the tongue on top are the ones that sense bitter foods/things but have a dentist look for a better diagnosis.
A 46-year-old member asked:

What can cause the taste buds on the tip of your tongue to swell up?

See dentist: Taste buds are only located on the extreme back and side of the tongue, not on the tip. See your dentist to get the tip of your tongue checked.
