Why have my tastes changed after a cold ?

I had a cold 10 days ago and it has resolved, most of the secretions are over. I noticed my palate seemed tender and has two spots of bruised spots at the line of the roof of my mouth. I had some fresh grapefruits and a menthol Halls candy for soothing, now my taste buds have altered. Food does not taste the same. Any ideas, thanks.

Hi Leecheam,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
No need to worry this can be either because of post viral or due to medicines taken to treat the cold. Take some multivitamins and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Drink plenty of warm water.

Take care
