Painful swollen Taste buds

Postby Robert » Sat Jun 04, 2016 7:37 am

It feels like a pimple or small bump on the tongue and these taste buds are paining. Any first aid treatments for a swollen taste bud before meeting the physician?

Sounds like a thrush. No one really perscribes anything for a single thrush, unless you have a severe yeast infection going on there or have some kind of immune deficiency issue.

Consult with your doctor anyway, just to be on the safe side, but I've seen good results with rolling a gulp of alcohol around the tongue..

Did you eat something hot? Or bite your tongue? A tongue injury can cause you to have painful bumps and affect your taste buds. You can also just have a canker sore or like the other person said, it can be thrush. You may also want to check if you are experiencing an allergic reaction. I would highly suggest seeking help from a doctor.
