Burning mouth?: Hard to know without examining you and learning more. There is a condition known as burning mouth syndrome. Irritants such as certain (especially spicy) foods, hygiene product (mouthwash? or dental implants can exacerbate) Infection (yeast), autoimmune disorders, vitamin deficiency, hormone changes (greater incidence with menopause) and medication side effects are also suspects.
