Tongue hurts to certain foods (Eggplants, Potato, etc...)

I've had this problem since I was young. Sometimes when I eat foods like eggplant, potatos, or spinach my tongues start hurting. When it starts to hurt, my tongues start showing scars and become more red. Some foods don't hurt my tongue all the time but eggplants are usually the worst. Does anyone know if this is just a food allergy or is it an actual condition?

Yes, definitely an allergy to certain foods. I have the same problem with eggplant. I do enjoy the taste, but, not worth the misery after the first bite.

Avoid foods that do that to your tongue and live happily ever after!!
