Burned tongue

I burned my tongue taste testing dinner last night so badly I blistered my tongue (hidden pockets of boiling liquid are a really unpleasant find after you've cooled the rest of the taste sample!)
I dealt with it last night, but it about killed me to eat breakfast this morning. Chloroseptic helped a little bit, but not enough to let me eat. Any tips for shutting this pain down long enough to eat? How long do tongues take to heal?

  • They heal pretty quick---try oralgel-- unprocessed honey will help heal it, try holding some on the area for a few minutes a few times a day
