  • There are various reasons for the enlarged taste buds. It can be because of some infection, allergy to some food , reaction of a medicine,because of smoking and chewing tobacco etc. Normally you don't need treatment for this . it subsides itsself in a day or two and sometimes in some hours.Maintain good oral hygiene clean your tongue ,you can do warm saline rinses or can use OTC available antiseptic mouthwashes . if you smoke quit smoking . But if they don't subside then you should consult your dentist as it can be serious condition also .For more info on oral lesions you can visit the following link on our website....
