In brief: See a Dentist or MD

There is a condition called burning mouth syndrome that ive seen associated with gastric reflux disease.
Ive learned since that bms can be a primary condition or as a secondary symptiom it has been linked with yeast infections, b vitamin deficiencies, diabetes, and other systemic and psychological disorders. Do you wear a denture? See a doctor so he can examine you more thoroughly.

In brief: Burning sensation

The tissue could still be recovering from the recent viral infection that you had and should continue to improve.
There are several conditions that can lead to burning in the mouth. One of these is burning mouth syndrome. These are conditions that don't improve over the short term. See your dr. If it doesn't get better in the next few days.
