Ask-A-Doc: Mouth Pain
Ask-A-Doc: Mouth Pain

Dear Dr. J,
I was eating a chocolate covered cherry la
st wk and my mouth started burning. AS of today the inside of my mouth feels like the protective coating has been striped off and it hurts to eat with spices. Is there anything that can be done? Anything in the candy that could have caused this? Not just spices, I just ate chocolate pudding and my mouth feels raw. Any help would be appreciated.

See below to hear Dr. J answer this question on the show
