, around the third week in November, I accidentally drank the noodle soup which was still hot and that caused red spots and canker sores in the area around the tongue. A few days ago, it was gone but I saw a few small lumps at the base of the tongue that had not yet disappeared. My guess is because of the hot gravy I accidentally drank. What is dangerous and how to eliminate it?

Hello Faukha, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

The human tongue has many small protrusions on its surface called the papillae. This papilla tongue has a function to feel the taste, feel the touch on the tongue, and feel the temperature. Enlargement of the papilla of the tongue can be caused by several conditions, including:

stomach acid disease / GERD

allergic to food
tongue burning because food is too hot
eat foods that are too spicy or too sour
smoke
certain systemic infections
inflammation of the tongue due to friction (for example there are sharp teeth or excessive tooth fillings)
certain nutritional deficiencies
tongue cancer
etc

Enlargement of the tongue papilla that you experience can indeed occur because the tongue is burning from drinking the hot soup. In general, no action is needed to overcome this because this condition will improve by itself over time. If for more than 2 weeks you still feel discomfort / pain in your tongue or the tongue loses the ability to taste, you should check with your doctor for further evaluation. But if you don't feel certain symptoms right now, here are some things you can do yourself:

Avoid eating food that is too hot for a while
Avoid consuming spicy and sour foods for a while
Take care of your teeth and mouth health with regular toothbrushes at least 2 times a day
After brushing your teeth, make sure you also brush your tongue carefully
Avoid smoking
Drink enough every day (at least 2-3 liters a day)


So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
