Should you worry if you burn the roof of your mouth with hot pizza?
No, not really. According to burn surgeon Dr. Jeremy Goverman, most mouth burns only affect the first layer of skin. And although it hurts – and makes tasting food difficult – you should heal in a week. To feel better, swish cold water in your mouth, pop an over-the-counter pain reliever if necessary, and if it’s really stinging, you can try an oral analgesic spray.
