Default Re: Tongue burning

It may be what us pipe smokers call tounge bite. When you smoke a tobacco with a high sugar or sodium content the smoke or vapor can deposit in the cracks of the tounge causing in essence a chemical burn. This happens normally with either improper smoking technique (I doubt this is the case with the nargile smoker) a tobacco with way to much sugar or salt/sodium content or the drinking of a carbinated beverag as this can cause tounge bite when smokig a pipe. There are of course other things that can cause this problem. I hope this helps (youtube has some members who can discuss this ailment 100 times better than I can) =]
