I’m sure everyone can relate. At one time or another, we’ve all defied reason because sometimes, sometimes it’s just plain unreasonable to wait the designated amount of time to bite into that gooey pizza pop you’ve just plucked from the searing hot toaster oven. In reality when hungry tummy wins the war over patience, you know you’re gonna get burned. So here’s what to do when you badly scald the roof of your mouth or tongue…
1. Feel the Burn
From piping hot pizza slice to oh-so-cozy (but way to hot) cuppa soup—there are times when we throw patience and caution to the wind in favor of ravenous hunger. You might have had one to many glasses of wine (I’m not judging) before biting into that pot pie, or you might be rushing out the door to work while trying to squeeze in one final cup of sanity, I mean coffee.
Either way, it’s too late when you feel that sear on the side of your cheek or tip of your tongue. You got scalded, and even though it’s not a third-degree burn by any means, it still hurts like heck. Now what do you do?
