I recently burned the roof of my mouth and was wondering if there was some kind of medicine I could put on it so I could eat or at least drink without so much discomfort. Sad

Anything you can get at the drug store for fever blisters or canker sores will work for you. The gel will numb the roof of your mouth for a little while, long enough for you to eat. Try ambesol or campho-phenique. The only side effect is that they usually taste nasty - but after a couple bites of food it should go away.
