About a week ago my tongue swelled and then the taste buds fell off and eating or drinking burns and I can't taste anything. What could this be?

Many Possibilities: For a fairly complete list of possibilities, see http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003047.Htm. Sometimes the cause is unknown and the diagnosis is called burning tongue syndrome or idiopathic glossopyrosis. You will need to be assessed by a dentist and possibly referred to other specialists to get an accurate diagnosis.

I have somewhat swollen taste buds on the middle & back of my tongue feels like I burnt it. Is this what a burn feels like or could it be something else?

I have somewhat swollen taste buds on the middle & back of my tongue feels like I burnt it. Is this what a burn feels like or could it be something else?

Possibly: If you recently ate something very hot this could be the result. Most of the time people burn the roofs of their mouth when eating or drinking something hot but the tongue happens often also. If it is a burn you should be ok and the symptom should resolve within a few days.

Burnt tongue: Sounds like a possible allergic reaction. A otc antihistamine may work if no change you will need to see you dentist for further evaluation. If swelling occurs go to emergency room to address possible airway restriction and managment. Side effect from prescription medication could also be a cause. Consult the prescribing doctor if you are on medications.

Coconut oil ruined taste buds, how do I get it back?

Coconut oil ruined taste buds, how do I get it back?

How so?: I would suggest you have your own dentist examine you and then discuss this issue with you. I would think that coconut oil would not be able to permanently harm your taste buds and whatever it did cause would naturally return to normal in time.

They will heal.: Just like skin cells your taste buds are constantly being replaced and just like skin cells they will heal over time. Depending on the severity of the burn it could take about 5-7 days. In the mean time avoid hot and/or acidy food and drinks, as they will slow down healing.

Can you get rid of those little white taste buds that hurt on the tip of your tongue when you get a cold?

Can you get rid of those little white taste buds that hurt on the tip of your tongue when you get a cold?

Time: There is an old saying that you can treat them and they will go away in 5-7 days or you can leave them alone and they will go away in 5-7 days. The best thing to do is avoid foods and drinks that irritate them such as tart and acidic foods and drinks. If they are particularly uncomfortable you can rinse with milk of magnesia (1 tsp) and then spit it out. Oragel helps but is impossible to keep on.
