While the cause: of burning mouth/tongue is often not found, it can be associated with vitamin deficiencies, including B12. The burning/scalded sensation typically affects the tongue more than lips, gums, throat. There can be other factors including dry mouth, fungal infection of mouth, oral lichen plans, dentures, reflux, etc. The "rice" are enlarged papillae/taste buds which is not unusual.

Peristomal wound: When i see a patient who has difficulties with peristomal wound or pain, i generally try to ascertain cause. Usually, if there is no underlying pathology, the skin is irritated by the adhesive. Using a hydrocolloid dressing beneath the adhesive may reduce the difficulties.
