On very rare occasions, I get a sore tongue, not burning and not white, just along the side or under the tongue, it gets sore and anything tart like lemonade makes it worse. The only thing I've ever used is powdered alum. My grandmother told me of this, and I think she used this spice when making pickles. It is a white powder and all I know is that it works every time and I only need to just dampen my finger in water, dip it into the powder and apply it to the sore area and it heals it after one application.
Hope this helps someone else, what an easy fix for something that can make your miserable, especially when trying to eat.
HI U GINGER,,,,,,,,, alum is aluminum sulfate and not good for your brain. In your situation, it probably not a deal.
Like your grandmother, we always used alum to make pickles crisp. I finally learned that you can use pickle crisp (calcium chloride) to make your pickles crisp without using alum. The pickle folks kept that a secret for many years.
Calcium chloride is a desiccant in that it removes water from the air. It is the product that folks use in their clothes closet to keep the moisture down so their garments do not mildew.
I think you are safe in your use of alum.
