Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. You should not worry about your mouth membranes getting burned as scaring of mucosa of inside of mouth is rare due to burns from hot food. And moreover the mucosal layers of mouth are continously regenerating which further reduces persistence of any scar. So dont be anxious about it. Wish you good health.
