Dissolvable strips provide instant relief from burning your mouth on eating food that’s too hot

Sometimes you’re so damn hungry, but the thing you want to eat has just come out of an oven and you just don’t want to wait for it to cool down. In the near future, you may be able to scarf down that scalding hot slice of cheese and quickly remedy any burns on the inside of your mouth with a dissolvable strip of science.

The strip, which is non-toxic is applied directly to the burned part of the tongue, cheek or roof of the mouth. It sticks to the affected area and won’t interfere with normal day-to-day activities, as it quickly dissolves for instant pain relief and promotes healing.

Lead researcher Jason McConville, Ph.D., and colleagues from University of Texas at Austin, designed the strip for controlled delivery of a local anesthetic, benzocaine, and a therapeutic polymer. Benzocaine, commonly used as a topical pain reliever in dental products and throat lozenges, was chosen as for its non-irritating properties.
