I would allow the: injured area to heal over. Removing the scab before it is ready to come off - will cause further injury to underlying tissue and open up a portal for possible infection. Take care.

Metal Taste: This can be from an acidic mouth and a new amalgam (silver) filling, from medication that you are taking, the breakdown of an existing amalgam filling or something else. You should be seen by a dentist to determine the cause.

Skin tag: This should be examined. If it is just skin after you burn your mouth when eating pizza just pull it yourself. If it is something bigger, you can't do this yourself. Any growth that you see is like an iceberg, there is mush more under the skin that needs removed or it will just grow back. These can grow because of irritation from broken teeth or your bite.
