Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

Burning the roof of your mouth can be painful. There are some things you can do for minor burns that can help.

Sip or eat something cool or frozen, such as an icy drink or ice cream to help ease the pain. Some drinks, such as milk, coat the inside of your mouth. They provide a layer of relief that water can't. While you’re healing, avoid crunchy foods or foods that have sharp edges or ends. These foods can aggravate the skin. Avoid hot or spicy foods, too. Opt for cool, soft foods until your mouth burns heal. You can take an over-the-counter pain medication to help ease pain and inflammation. Common medications include ibuprofen (Advil), acetaminophen (Tylenol), and benzocaine (Orajel). Do not take more than the daily recommended dosage of each of these medications.
