In brief: Somewhat Mysterious

Burning mouth syndrome is sort of an umbrella diagnosis for a chronic burning sensation of the mouth that has no obvious pathological cause such as a fungal infection, vitamin deficiency, drug side effect, etc.
The diagnosis is made after other possible causes are ruled out. Nih has a good site here.. http://www.nidcr.nih.gov/oralhealth/topics/burning/burningmouthsyndrome.htm.

In brief: Difficult condition

I try several approaches, vitamin b complex, oral yeast treatment, in women i ask for physician consult on hormone balance and last oral rinses with steroid mouth rinse.
I find there is a good response to oral yeast treatment and vitamin b complex. One woman i sent for yam skin cream at the health food store. It has a hormone replacement effect. Nothing worked up to that point. Sweet relief.
