Burning mouth, Tongue and lipsMy mother is having burning sensation in mouth. Earlier Doctors treated for acidity where she took all the possible medicines for acidity out there. But at that time she had watery mouth and bitter taste. Now she has very dry mouth and pinkish tongue. She dos not eat any spices as anything she eats, burns the mouth. What one of the doctors have suggested is that the tissues in her mouth are damaged and they grow on their own, which is no medication is needed or will help. Another one have suggested that the salivary glands are not producing saliva. So we got her the salivary artifical liquid, which she applies to her tongue and lips. And that gives her some relief. But after half an hour the burning sensation starts again. I have begun to believe that it could be that salivary gland is not producing saliva,leaving her mouth dry and burning. Earlier she has taken Natrum phos, Nux vomica, and byronia. Right now she is not taking any homeopathic medicine. Thanks

A question: How is her thirst as compared to others? Does she feel thirsty all thw time? Or is she thirstless? How much water does she drink at a time?
If she has dryness of oral cavity without thirst, Pulsatilla is the best option.
If she has intense thirst and drinks sips every now and then, Arsenic might help.
There are other few remedies as well, need a few more symptoms to differentiate.
Any other complaints? bowel habits?
