Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Consumption of several types of food in some people who have a tendency to allergies can indeed trigger discomfort (stinging, itching) and swelling (lumps appear) around the tongue due to inflammation (inflammation). Some of the most common types of food are seafood (seafood), egg yolks, nuts, or also foods that contain too much flavoring. However, it is possible that complaints can also occur after consuming other types of food because they are very individual.
Inflammation due to food allergies is strongly influenced by genetic factors, which are passed from parents to children. In more severe conditions, sufferers can even experience vomiting, a feeling like choking, or even shortness of breath due to this allergy.
Need to clarify first, do you have a history of allergies to fish or other foods before?
If not, then it may also itch, sting, and small bumps on your tongue appear due to other factors, for example:
Injuries, such as from being bitten or pierced by fish spines
Fungal, viral, bacterial infections
Glossitis (inflammation of the tongue)
Side effects of using certain toothpastes or mouthwashes
Vitamin B12 deficiency
Psychosomatic disorders, and so on
In the meantime, try to relieve the complaints on your tongue through the following efforts:
Drink lots of water (preferably not warm, because warm temperatures can aggravate itching)
Avoid consuming foods that have the potential to trigger itching on the tongue (as mentioned above)
Avoid biting or sucking the tongue excessively
Routinely brush your teeth 3 times a day then rinse your mouth with antiseptic mouthwash
Avoid excessive stress or anxiety
However, if the complaint does not improve after taking the steps above within 1 to 3 days, you should immediately consult a doctor for further evaluation.
Maintain tongue health
I hope this helps.
