7 Ways To Cool Down Your Burning Tongue

There are two ways to destroy your enemies. One is to kill them with your success and second is to add terribly hot pepper in their foods. Both are equally responsible for the burning sensations of a rectum. But what if some spicy hot sauce burns your mouth?

Have you ever eaten something terribly hot and spicy food or a delicious chicken curry with chutney? Ever? If not, it's the right time for you to leave earth. Mouth is one of the most sensitive parts of the body. It always burns because of capsaicin: a colorless, odorless substance which is concentrated in the tissue of a chili pepper.

A delicious bite of your favorite jerk chicken takes you to the adventurous ride, but soon your spicy adventure makes your tongue to tingle, cheeks redden, and beads of sweat form on your forehead. You suddenly run towards the glass of cold water-but it will only make things worse as water spreads the capsaicin around the mouth, which will simultaneously increase your pain.

What to do then? Confused? Try this simples steps given below and get rid of your pain. Thanks us later!
