I can't stop feeling it," she said in one of his latest videos published on TikTok. She detailed that she has had the condition for some time, but she thought it would only last for a few days.

According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, "dysgeusia is a disorder in which there is a persistent bad taste in the mouth. This taste can be salty, rancid or metallic. Dysgeusia is sometimes accompanied by burning mouth syndrome, which is characterized by a sensation of pain and burning in the mouth."
If the cause is a disease, the doctor will treat it or refer you to another doctor who can. Often, treating the medical problem will eliminate the taste disorder. For example, if you have lost your sense of taste due to respiratory infections or allergies, you should regain your taste when these problems are resolved.
