Tastebud allergy?

Does anyone know if food allergies cause irritated tastebuds?

Re: Tastebud allergy?

If it was a true allergy, it would cause a more serious reaction. But, some foods such as spicy, acidic, sugary...etc can irritate them.

Just keep an eye on what you suspect and not eat it/them for at least 4 days.

Just forgot to mention that some toothpastes cause that kind of irritation for me.

What exactly are the symptoms?

Could you have geographic tongue? Check it out and see if you fit the description.

Re: Tastebud allergy?

tongue looks normal, it just seems that I get a tiny spot (sometimes you can't see it) that hurts a little bit. It seems like I get them after I eat. I didn't know if food, too much of a certain vitamin, or whatever that irritates these little buds. But to answer your question, if it is seen, it is one little bud that hurts a little bit. A dentist once told me that you can actually pinch and pull off an irritated taste bud! he said that it would bleed, but it would feel munch better. I have to say, I haven't worked up the courage to do that!

Re: Tastebud allergy?

I've had them and yeowww, they do hurt. Out of desperation, I've pinched them off with tweezers, and yes they bleed like heck, but at least that constant irritating pain is gone.

The other option is to use Orajel mouth sore gel. It numbs the pain and it has zinc in it to help heal. It goes away in a day or so.

I have that stuff on hand and even use it for sore throats. Apply it with a clean q-tip with each application. You don't need very much, but just kind of rub it in (will get kind of white) a few times a day.

Another option would be to suck a zinc losenge and hold it on that spot....there are different kinds, some of which are soooooo sweet and taste gross. I like the ginger ones from Sisu.

Since you're prone to them......best to have a solution so that it doesn't take up too much mental time.

Hope you get relief soon,
quincy

Re: Tastebud allergy?

Do you think that this is a common thing? Is irritated tastebuds a serious thing?

Re: Tastebud allergy?

Hi,

Not serious, just a darn painful inconvenience. I certainly haven't worried about it. They come, they go. Try the Orajel MOUTH gel. I just bought my second tube last night.

If you eat foods that you recognise as irritating them.....keep those foods to a minimum amount or every few days instead of one large "feast".

Anything that lasts for a very long time and really doesn't get better after a reasonable time....then it's time to see a doctor.

Be well,
quincy

Re: Tastebud allergy?

It seems like I am allergic to a few things which I LOVE! When you say come and go, I know what you mean. One disappears and another comes on. It's not like that all the time, but this time that's certainly the case. When you said that you pinched off your tastebud, does that particular bud grow back? Did it really hurt to do that? How long did it bleed afterwards? Do your turn white sometimes? It seems mine will be white then same color as my tongue. They are annoying aren't they!

Re: Tastebud allergy?

Remember, it's not an allergy, for if it was it would be very serious and not just present as an inflammed tastebud. But irritation from foods that are highly acidic or very sweet or sour could definitely irritate them.

I don't remember how long it bled, maybe a few minutes at most.

Yep, they're annoying....hope they go soon for you!
