In brief: Burning mouth is

a difficult condition to diagnose/treat.
Certainly it occurs after eating/drinking certain foods, but also occurs without these triggers.It is possible that your altered hormonal milieu following pregnancy is a factor.Other factors include dry mouth, nutritional deficiencies (B vitamins/iron/zinc), allergies, reflux, medications, etc. Problem may be with taste and sensory nerves. Start with ENT
