In brief: Rinse your mouth

There are several mouth rinses some over the counter like act-sensitive formula, biotin, and home remedy warm salt water. There is also a prescription mouth wash "peridex' and also "therasol" rinse will help.
Good luck.

In brief: Vitamin C, Aloe vera

Fortunately, burns on our tongues tend to heal rather quickly, but taking vitamin c can accelerate the healing of burns- i advise 1000 mg 3-4 times a day.
Aloe vera is renowned for helping burns to heal so swishing a liquid aloe vera solution in your mouth is worth trying as well. Zinc also supports wound healing.

In brief: Burning Tongue

I recommend liquid antacids, if you want to protect your tongue from the burning sensation after hot soup.
Try maalox or mylanta for a few days. The burning should stop in 3 - 7 days.

If I have problem like yours i agree trying something to reduce chemical irritation may work but consulting your md for some vitamin deficiency , as well as local irritation caused by flat worn , sharp edges of teeth should be ruled out . good luck
