Sore and sensitive tongue, swollen taste buds, painful to eat and talk, had a thrush before. Treatment?

For the last 4 days I ve expierienced a sore and very sensitive tongue. It seems to be getting worse and does not seem to go away. The taste buds are a bit swollen on tip of it but otherwise there are no other changes that I could see. Just a few days before it started I had a thrush , not sure if these two could be connected. It's getting really uncomfortable and painful to eat and talk. Please help

Dentist 's  Response

Thrush can lead into swollen taste buds.

Depapillation of tongue often results in swelling of taste buds.

I would advice you to floss your tongue daily with tongue scrapers.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Rinse your mouth after every meals.

Avoid intake of allergic,spicy food stuffs.

If symptoms persists,please do visit a dentist.

Meanwhile,vitamin c and iron supplements has to be administered.

Take care.
