Hi, after burning my gum on some pizza (!) i noticed some odd red patches developed on the roof of my mouth. however i dont think they are related to the burn which was just inside my foot teeth, these are located more on the soft pallet.

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

This is a superficial mucosal burn

You need to use a topical oral lidocaine gel

That will heal in a week or so

You should avoid spicy and hot food
