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!
Drink a whole glass of it. The milk protein consists of casein which breaks up the capsaicin which is responsible for burning sensation in your mouth.
The starchy foods like bread, rice, tortilla, potatoes and many others will help create a barrier between your mouth and capsaicin and they also absorbs some of the stinging pain.
Put a sugar spoon in your mouth or suck a sugar cube. Don't split it out until it absorbs completely in your mouth. It absorbs the spicy oil which is the reason behind your tongue burning.
The acidic properties of lemon can help neutralize your mouth.
Just place a spoonful honey in your mouth and coat your tongue.
Eat peanut butter on bread or with a spoon to get rid of mouth burn.
The creamy texture and taste can reduce your burning sensation.
