7.Tabasco Sauce
A mouth rinse with water and a few drops of Tabasco sauce can relieve the pain in the tongue. A chemical known as capsaicin present in the Tabasco sauce depletes a pain signalling chemical in the nerve cells, thereby relieving the associated pain.

Honey can be applied over the tongue like an ointment. It helps in reducing the inflammation.

14.Lavender Oil
Lavender oil can be applied over the burned tongue using cotton dabs to reduce the pain and to promote rapid healing.

Also, drinking plenty of water can absorb the heat in the burning area and relieve the burning sensation. Intake of hot and spicy food should be avoided. If the pain exists, it is advisable to see a doctor as soon as possible.
