Advise medicine to cure burning mouth syndrome

In December I was diagnosed with a severe case of Thrush affecting my throat, mouth and tongue. I was prescribed Nyostatin oral suspension. I followed up with my family doctor after completing the medication and was given the all clear. The symptons of burning tongue and frothing mouth didn t leave and I was told by the doctor that I had Burning mouth syndrome , something that could last for weeks or months. Its 4 months later and I still have the same symptoms.... burning mouth and tongue, no white spots or signs of thrush exist. Any words of advice?

As per your complain Burning tongue/mouth syndrome is a condition in which there is burning
sensation inside mouth and can also be associated with a scalded feeling and can also experience
numbing sensation..
It can occur due to a number of causes like nutritional deficiency of iron and vitamin B12, dry
mouth or xerostomia, stress, acid reflux, side effects of medicines etc..
I would suggest you to consult an Oral Physician and get evaluated and a thorough clinical
examination and investigations like blood tests can be advised..
Treatment of underlying cause will resolve the symptoms..
As of now to get relieved you can start gargling with a numbing mouthwash containing Lignocaine..
Take anti inflammatory painkiller like Ibuprofen..
Avoid spicy foods and take a soft bland diet..
Suck ice pops..

Hope I have answered your query.
Please let me know if you can assist you further.
