Why Do Some Foods Make My Mouth Burn?

Question: Every time I eat cheese or bread, I get a sensation of burning in my mouth and on my tongue. What could be causing this?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
Without a common denominator in the foods causing you trouble, it’s hard to provide a precise explanation. Nutritional deficiencies and inflammatory disorders would be the first to consider.
A low-grade thrush can cause such symptoms, but the burning would not be exclusive to cheese or bread. You should have a full mouth evaluation to exclude any oral irritation or lesions. Be sure you consult your dentist for evidence of a dental disorder or gingival disease that may cause sensitivity and burning.
If all this all proves negative, you should seek a more involved workup with your primary medical doctor to rule out a nutritional deficiency, HIV, chronic infection, salivary gland defect, mucosal defect, autoimmune disease, and neurological causes.
