Re: Inflamed Taste Buds Anyone Else

i've had this- yours sounds much worse, however.

These *usually* aren't caused by bacteria, so antibiotics will do NOTHING for you. They are viral- if anything more than some kind of food allergy.

I would suggest having an allergy test performed to see what it is that you're eating-if anything- that is having this effect on you.

Mine seems to come around when I drink or eat acidic products... but I am not sure of this.. I just know I try to steer clear of most orange juice...

ALSO- I have heard that this can be caused when you eat something that you're body is not *used to*....

If I remember correctly I had just started drinking Cod Liver Oil around christmas of 05'... I had these on christmas...

there as a cold with it as well... a pretty bad cold...

so it's viral- and.... maybe a little bit of an allergy...

(this is just my opinion- but i believe all the medicine is hurting more than helping in the long run)

Re: Inflamed Taste Buds Anyone Else

Cheryl,

This is EXACTLY what's going on with me. I went to the doctor two weeks ago with a really bad sore throat. I usually get a sore throat this time of year due to allergies and sinus drainage, but I wasn't able to eat it hurt so bad. But the doctor said it was just drainage and gave me penicillin V (never had that before --usually take a Z pack or amoxicillin) and a prescription strength antihistamine. About four days into it, my taste buds became inflamed and I down right lost my sense of taste. I had cotton mouth and was just an unhappy camper. I stopped the penicillin two days short (probably a mistake, I know) but the mouth problem persists. My tongue has a burning sensation and the tip of my tongue is super sensitive. I have stressed myself to no end over this .... if you have any luck with your medications, please let me know. I'll try anything .... on the upside, I have lost 5 pounds.
Teree

Tongue is sensitive and feels "raw"

For about a month now my tongue has felt like I burned it on hot food, but it's the entire tongue and I know I haven't burned it. Things don't taste the way they used to. I started taking Zyrtec about 2 months ago, but I haven't found anything that would indicate that this would be a known side effect from that medication. Anyone have any ideas?
