Customer Question

I have what looks like lingual papillitis and when I was drunk last night I stupidly sprayed it with a Deoderant can to try and numb the pain as it really hurt. This morning the end of my tongue is still relatively numb and there's like a blister there

You have burnt the skin with the deodorant. Dont worry this will heal. You should apply Orajel ointment. Try to avoid rubbing against your teeth. It will heal but can take upto a week. No major problems are expected from this.

Okay thank you! Should I be worried its still numb?
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 14 days ago.

Not at all, thats natural since you burned that part. The sensation will come back eventually.
