    pineapples have bromelain in the core... its whats widely used as a meat tenderizer. if you dont get all the core out, or the pineapple isnt fully ripe, this can happen to some people. I just found this out the hard way, the roof of my mouth started to bleed. youre basically tenderizing your mouth...without the mallet.

    Too much citric acid....burns into your skin and makes it crack open and bleed.

    your tongue must be sensitive to acidic foods like pineaple

    Pineapple contains enzymes that break down some proteins. These enzymes may be attacking your lips, gums and tongue.

    pour a little honey on the Pineapple before you eat it this should stop that from happening

    No, it never actually bled, but my guess would be that you have really sensitive skin inside your mouth or something...
