Burn in Mouth Due to Hot Tea

Patient

Q: My 18 year old daughter daughter burned her mouth drinking hot tea last night around eight. She woke up this morning with five to ten small blisters; smaller than a pea, under her tongue. She is complaining of dryness of mouth,but little or no pain. Should I take her out of school and get her to the er,or make an appointment with her doctor or dentist?

Doctor

A:   There will be no long term damage due to burn on her mouth. She can relieve her symptoms by using over the counter medication such as ambesol, fluocinonide gel, amlexanox oral paste and topical analgesics. She should avoid eating spicy or hot food in the meantime.
