Acidic foods: Pineapple is a very acidic and rough food to eat. It is very common for this to bother your tongue after eating it. It happens to me. I doubt your response is an allergy. Lay off citrus for a few days and things should improve. Also avoid extremely hot, spicy or acidic foods while this is healing.
