Fissured Tongue - Sensitive to spicy food

fbg1951 posted:
I developed severe dry mouth from medications that led to fissured tongue (red cracks in top) that is hyper-sensitive to spicy food, particularly hot spices (pepper, curry, cumin, etc.).

I changed the meds, and dry mouth went away, but the fissures remain and so does the hypersensitivity.

Has anyone had this problem? Fissured tongue info says it's not a problem, so it does not discuss treatment. But it is a problem for me..

Having fissured in tongue can be cause of concern. It is really sensitivity to spicy and hot food is and can be linked to Psoriasis. Though there are no known cures you can use of Zinc and B- Complex may help.
