Tongues are actually one of the fastest healing spots on the body. I bet you feel better by tomorrow. Be sure to drink lots of water however and try not to eat so much salt. You do more harm to the rest of your body than your tongue, which is trying to communicate that to you.
As long as you are breathing through your nose, it should only take a few days. Mouth breathing will dry out your tongue which could extend the time for it to recover from the excess salt.
This is candy. It’s been around for a while. You just need to stop trying to bubble wrap your child. Many of our parents let us try things or do stuff that may cause a bit of discomfort or maybe even pain. It’s the process of growing up and learning. She’s not going to die because she had a warhead candy. Has that happened? Correct me if I’m wrong. Don’t turn your daughter into a baby, because any real pain is going to hurt much worse than a warheads candy.

There might be appearance of little bumps or in actual terms inflammation in the papila of the tongue. Papila are like outgrowths on the tongue were the taste buds are present. Cutting off of the papila causes the tongue to bleed in this case. It is called transient lingual papillitis (TLP). TLP is the inflammation of mushroom shaped or fungiform papila in the tongue after eating sugary foods. The cause of TLP is unknown. but it’s safe to say it’s not dangerous. The inflammation disappears after a couple of days. Sometimes washing with salt water also helps. Maintaining a good oral hygiene never hurts. TLP doesn’t appear just for sweet sugary foods it can also appear for sour foods too.
Many people feel like a rash is induced on their tongue, which it’s not a rash, when they eat specific foods, in which one of them include of are pineapples. Even though pineapples have citric acid, the also have bromelain, an enzyme that digests proteins. Bromelain digests the tender skin inside the mouth. Pineapples are the only known food to have bromelain but there are other possible foods that could have it. To avoid this, you can cook pineapples and it’ll taste the same but without the bromelain. The heat denatures enzymes in the food.
If you think that you have a mouth sore, which could be the case, avoid citrus fruits and juices, salty, spicy, and/or acidic foods. Do not drink carbonated or caffeinated drinks and refrain from any type of alcohol. Doing the above will prevent further damage and pain to your mouth.

I have this problem with garlic and pineapple – the chemicals in them burn my tongue and cause it to swell or even blister. Once injured, the tongue seems to be more prone to future sensitivity and injury.
I simply avoid them as much as possible. Easy to do when you cook your own food. In restaurants and at dinner parties, I inquire about ingredients and am careful.
How do you clean a smelly garbage disposal?

Measures which may help to alleviate such a dry mouth include the following:
Water may be the most readily available option and perhaps, the easiest. You could do this by taking in frequent sips of water from a bottle.
Chewing sugar-free gum may help in stimulating salivary flow which could help in moistening the surfaces of the mouth. The sugar-free emphasis is to reduce the exposure to sugar.
Avoiding alcohol may also be a good idea since alcohol is known to have a drying effect. This includes an alcohol-containing mouthwash.
Caffeine could also contribute to dehydration. Therefore it may be best to stay away from tea, coffee and other caffeine-containing beverages when your mouth is already super dry.
Smoking contributes to dryness of the mouth. And so a smoker experiencing dryness of the mouth may want to with-hold smoking at that time.

Since you didn’t say what weird feeling it was I assume you have almost a dull numbing feeling that is a lingering salty taste. Kinda turns towards a metal taste if not followed by water. The salt and vinegar acid drys the tongue out and leaves a slightly bad taste in your mouth. Salt/vinegar is a very strong taste but a satisfying compliment to most foods. It is an enhancement to flavor of meats, veggies, Potatoes, rice and many foods. You taste buds favor a salty taste or sweet taste, mine is salty. And leaves a slightly salty Tungue for a few minutes or till I drink.

It never heals completely. The weak spot(s) do become less painful to unnoticeable but if you continue to over indulge in salt, the injury comes back full force in less and less time. Some injuries never completely heal and all major injuries do leave evidence even if it’s only detectable under a microscope.
