Scratched tongue

I was brushing my tongue and I think I’ve scratched a enlarged tastebud because now it feels like there’s something stuck back there. The sensation is making me want to gag. Anyone else had this or know how I can get some relief? I already have to use Biotene mouthwash as I’m on PPIs & get a dry mouth.

Try some normal painkillers, might be enough to dull the sensation. That and warm saltwater gargles.

Tongues are strange things and pretty resilient so unless it becomes very painful I'd leave it alone. I have a 1/2 cm deep cut in mine (ie looks as if it goes through half the tongue, about 1cm long) from wearing a brace that looped behind my mouth. It has never been painful or caused any problems.
