Inflammed taste bud at the tip of tongue. Having unilateral tender lymphadenopathy. Why are symptoms progressing?

I have what I believe to be an inflamed taste bud at the tip of my tongue for approx 4 days now and have unilateral left tender lymphadenopathy posterior and inferior to the angle of the mandible for 2 days. I thought inflamed taste buds resolved in a couple of days so I m wondering why my sx are progressing rather than resolving. Any weird infections with these symptoms?

Hello and welcome to hcm forum,

Inflammed taste buds arise from allergic foods taken/medications/depapillation.

I would suggest you to avoid intake of hot/spicy/sour foods.
Lymphadenopathy is usually associated with fever/inflammation.
floss your tongue softly.
Anaesthetic gel can be applied at the site.
Warm saline gargle can be done.
Take care.

Thanks for the query,
Inflamed taste buds can be due to following reasons
1. Vitamin B complex deficiency
2. apthous ulcer
3. oral infections like candidiasis
4. any trauma due to jagged teeth
Please use rexidin mouth wash for early relief.

Meet a dentist if symptoms persist.

Thank you
