Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. This may be an inflammed taste bud also called papillae which can become inflamed after earing a very spicy or salty meal. Try using some honey on this area 4 or more times per day, if it doesn't improve, see your dentist to rule out any possible problems that may require care. I hope this information helps you , please let me know if I can help you further:-)
