How do I treat Infected Tast Buds. I have 2 and also a fever blister on my lip. Could the two be related in some way. Thanx in advance for your help.



Taste buds are a part of your tongue. I think that you have more than ten thousand  of taste buds in your oral cavity. Do you smoke cigarettes? I know that this can get taste to get infected. However there are several more reasons for the infection of taste buds like allergy or eating spicy and hot food. So if you like spicy and hot food you will need to get them out of your diet at least until your taste buds get back to normal. Try to gargle salty warm water to ease the irritation of the taste buds. This is only temporary solution but it helps in most cases. I hope this helped you a bit.

Good luck,
