Burned Your Mouth? Here’s What to Do


You know the feeling all too well. You are jazzed for that piping-hot bowl of pumpkin soup. You take a whiff, feel the steam, dip a spoon in and...obliterate any semblance of the roof of a mouth you once owned.

Here, three tips for recovering quick.

Step 1: Suck on an ice cube. This will numb any immediate pain.

Step 2: Swig a glass of milk. This will coat any sensitive tissue and protect it from further damage.

Step 3: Stick to soft breads and cool temperatures for a few days. You've done enough here.
