Tongue inflammation due to intake of spicy food can be due to ulceration or fibrotic lesions.

First of all ,intake of spicy foods has to be limited.

Apply topical steroids on the affected area.

Vitamin becosule,iron supplements has to be administered.

Take fluids as well as fruits including leafy vegetables.

Take care.

Inflammation of tongue i.e. glossitis can be due to several reason like Anaemia, Allergic to any medicine or mouthwash, thermal burn etc..
Take a multi vitamin like CAP VITAKIND once in a day for ten days.
Apply trigel over the sore areas.
Avoid eating spicy and crunchy food.
Take plenty of juices and nutritious diet.
Get her blood investigation done to rule out anaemia.
Stop using mouthwash if you are using any.
Don't have hot tea for some days.

hi rajagopal113,
you are suffering from a condition call Glossitis it is a condition in which the tongue is swollen and changes color, often making the surface of the tongue appear smooth.Glossitis is often a symptom of other conditions or problems including:Allergic reaction to toothpaste, mouthwash, breath fresheners, dyes in candy, plastic in dentures or retainers, or certain blood pressure medications
Dry mouth,Infections with bacteria or viruses ,injury from burns, rough edges of teeth,Low iron levels such as vitamin B12,Tobacco, alcohol, hot foods, spices, or other irritants,at times, glossitis may be passed down in families and is not due to another disease or event.
Glossitis usually responds well to treatment if the cause of inflammation is removed or treated. consult a dental surgeon he/she will found out the cause and will prescribe Antibiotics, antifungal medications, or other antimicrobials may be prescribed if the glossitis is due to an infection.
Dietary changes and supplements are used to treat anemia and nutritional deficiencies.orrepaste will respond well in your case but it is corticosteroid tropical gel you cannot use it more than 2 weeks.hope i have respond to your query.
