I ate red hots & now my tongue & throat are raw & things taste bad??

OK, I stopped eating Hot Tamales candy for this same reason, and I was a little worried about the Red Hots but I love them, so I gave it a shot...now, the same thing as with the Hot Tamales, the soft palate in the back of my mouth & the back of my tongue feel raw & sore & everything I eat, taste bad! What is going on?? Why can't I eat these?

  • You are allergic and I think that eating enough of these could actually burn you. My son is not allowed to eat any hot cinn candy because the cinn. actually burns his mouth from the inside out so he will start getting very raised red burns on the outside of his mouth and chin.

  • obviously you are having a reaction to cinnomon. Cinnamon can cause burns if it is strong enough..or the person is sensitive enough
