The 2-Second Trick That Will Stop The Pain Right After Burning Your Tongue

August 2, 2016 by Caroline Pirozzolo
shefinds | Style

The feeling of burning your tongue has got to be pretty high up there on the list of the worst things ever. I don’t start my morning without coffee (seriously, don’t talk to me beforehand), and I cannot count on both hands the amount of times I have burnt my tongue due to being a little too excited about my steaming hot latte. Not only does it hurt, but it can seriously mess with your taste buds for a day or two.

So what exactly should you do to stop the pain right after you burn your tongue? The unlikely cure is actually just a bit of sugar. (Which is probably also located conveniently nearby if you’re always burning your tongue on coffee like me.) If you sprinkle a bit of sugar on your tongue immediately after the burn and allow it to sit in your mouth and dissolve, the pain will subside. If honey is more your speed, a spoonful of the stuff on your tongue will also work great.

Obviously, if the burn doesn’t go away in a few days, then you should see a doc, stat – but for the run-of-the-mill “I was way too impatient to sit here with this slice of pizza in front of me,” type of burn, sugar or honey will fix the problem ASAP.
