And I have never experienced an event like this so I’m surprised .. do I have to see a doctor or not yes .. thank you .. sorry the story is too long .. please the explanation is yes .. thanks again ..
Hello Suhartini, thank you for asking.
The tongue is composed of hundreds of structures called tastebuds whose function is to receive stimulation of taste. That causes the tongue to recognize and distinguish different types of taste. In addition, the ability to recognize taste is also aided by smell. If there is infection and inflammation in the nose, difficulty in smell. As a result the tongue can not recognize the taste. A tongue that tastes bland may be caused by several things, for example:
Damage to tongue tastebuds. Infection of the nose and throat. The effect of certain drugs. Nerve disorders that supply the tongue. Typhoid fever. Avoid foods and drinks that are too hot, so as not to damage the tongue. Drink enough water. Consult this problem with your doctor if after more than a week there are no changes. Avoid taking medicine without doctor's advice. Regards.
