Hi. I have one taste bud that looks like it was literally pulled out, partially .. and it's a little sore if I eat something that rubs against it. I have been to a nurse who said it's probably related to an internal virus, or a burn. She said to rinse my mouth with warm salt water a few times a day. I tried that, no results except for a really dry throat. I don't know how to get rid of this! I'm not even sick! Please help!!! :eek:

  • I am having a similar problem. It is hard to get any info about it because they don't know what it is. I plan to see my dentist very soon, maybe then I can get some answers, although I doubt that they will tell me anything conclusive. I have had mine for upward of 3 years and in september 2007 it doubled in size and hurts more often. Searching for results online seems to by futile. Most of the message boards that I've seen where people have asked about a similar condition only to receive replies stating that what they were experiencing are "lie bumps". I'm southern. I know all about lie bumps and this is not one. If my dentist has any answers I will post again. Good luck to the both of us.
