HealthierMe: Mouth Burns

Posted: Updated:

We've all done it, burned our tongue or roof of our mouth when sipping hot coffee or eating hot pizza.

Now Scientists at the University of Texas have developed a dissolvable strip that provides instant pain relief for mouth burns. The strip contains an anesthetic that's used in dental products and throat lozenges. Researchers say it works like breath strips. You apply it directly to the burn and it gradually dissolves while healing. The strips are not yet available in stores.
