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

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.
