Swollen and sensitive tongue

Please help me with my urgent and frustrating condition.  My tongue is constantly swollen, painful, and sensitive. I  made the mistake of drinking soda and I felt as if my tongue was on fire.  I am presently taking benadryl, which doesn't give me much relief. Any suggestions?

Hi there,
A clinical examination may be necessary for correct diagnosis and management of your condition. You should avoid foods that require a lot of chewing, and eat mashed potatoes, yogurt, ice cream and creamy products. Suck on ice cubes this will reduce inflammation and calm pain. Gargles with warm saline water 2-3 times a day may be done. If the symptoms are severe you may need anti-inflammatory medications or pain medications. Seek the advice of a medical professional before starting with any natural treatments. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
