The name says it all: It can be varied, but complaints of burning or sharp type pain in the tongue, mouth and oral cavity. Often exacerbated by physical trauma and acidic or spicy foods. Some otc treatments which may help include pro-biotics, live culture yogurt, and capsacin. Avoid spicy, sour, crunchy, and salty foods. Good luck.
