Q.

burning sensation in my mouth and tongue.

What can cause it?  I have tried everything. I have false teeth and have taken it out to see if it help, but no.  I do not know what to do anymore. My lips are also burning and my mouth corners are cracking

It could possibly be a viral/bacterial infection. Bacterial infections are common in denture wearers especially if the denture is a few years old. See your dentist for a diagnosis
