The medical community regards honey, milk and salt as acceptable agents for the treatment of some diseases and infections resulting from wounds and burns, according to Ali A. Al-Jabri, author of "Honey, Milk, and Antibiotics." Honey has an antibacterial property that allows it to kill bacteria in a gentle manner; milk provides you with energy, proteins, vitamins and minerals that are necessary to repair damaged tissue; and salt contains antibacterial properties that can also reduce the risk of infection. Water and fresh juice are also considered effective, because both keep your tongue moist, while fresh juice contains vitamins and minerals that help the healing process.

Tips and warnings

  • Honey has no adverse side effects, however, it may sting your tongue initially when first applied to the burnt taste buds. Using the salt water rinse may cause acute pain that should subside within two minutes.
