Hi, you may be allergic to some ingredients in the preparation or there may be some strong chemicals that led to the problem due to inflammation of tongue papillae. The problem will subside gradually. Please stop taking the herbal preparation. You can use Chlohex mouthwash and Hexigel ointment for a quicker relief. Take care!

It could be because of any adulterated chemical present in it . See if it genuine herbal product.
