Avatar n tn I have been getting small white spots on my tongue for about a month now. At first it is a small white spot that over a a few days gets larger. it seems to get larger as the days go by. I always get it in the same spot and it goes away after about a week. It seems to come back within a two week period. i not sure what to do or if i have an disease. Also as the spot gets bigger, it turns red in the middle. I do have asthma and use an inhaler but this has never happened to me before.
Avatar n tn i have a white patch on the side line of the tongue. it itches and burns if i eat anything spicy. the food taste has also reduced. it looks like a blister but is not one. it does not bleed or anything like that.
Avatar f tn A few weeks after being on the antibiotics, I got a really foul taste in my mouth and noticed my tongue is coated in white that won't scrape off, with red spots (not sores). There's no pain, just like a weird feeling on my tongue. I have read this can be a side effect of the antibiotic, but when I googled the symptom of white coated tongue and bad breath, I saw all these hsv1 pages pop up, and of course, got paranoid once again, because I kissed someone a few days prior.
Avatar n tn The last two days my husband tongue is realy sore. He has spots on the tongue. Is this caused by the rx? Does anyone know how to make it better? Of course this is a holiday so I can not call the dr office and it is not an emergency. If anyone can help, please let me know.
Avatar n tn I noticed enlarged taste buds, but my tongue does not have a white coating and it's not red, just on a few small spots. It's very strange and I'm frustrated! Does anyone have any idea what could be? It also has a few "cuts" on top.
Avatar n tn I have had a sore white spot on the side of my tongue in the back for about a week and now the spots are on my throat. I have also been vomiting for the last two days. first question is do the have any thing to do with each other and what could cause this?
Avatar m tn Hi, nice to hear from you. I had been thinking about how you have been getting on. Sorry, I do not know the the difference between a white coated and white hairy tongue. I was prescibred with Daktarin gel on 1 March, my tongue is much improved, but it still feels slimy. I only used the Daktarin for a couple of days. I put the tube down somewhere and I can't find it now. I was prescribed with amoxycillin for my sinus infection of Saturday, so really could do with finding that Daktarin.
Avatar f tn I have been getting these white lines on the the tip of my tongue lately and I don't know what they are. The tip of my tongue is sore and somewhat burns every now and then. The white lines don't stay in 1 spot, they are always in different areas, but always on the tip area. I thought maybe it was because of sugar or because I wear a mouthguard at night and I thrust my tongue into my lower teeth. I can see the identations of my teeth on my tongue.
Avatar n tn The ulcer could be from a number of sources including trauma or a cold sore. Probably best to check the white spots to make sure its nothing serious.
Avatar n tn There are some white puss looking spots on my friends tongue and I was asking her about it and she said it is kind of sore when she brushes her tongue along her teeth. Its freaky looking and she's wondering if she has some thing that she should be concerned about. Help? Anyone?
Avatar n tn The right side of my tongue where the scars are located. First my tongue turns a terrible white, dry color, and then I get a bright red bald patches over the entire right side of my tongue. It is absolutely disgusting. The reason why I am starting to become more concerned about it is because, aside from the way it looks, it use to be that I would get the patches every couple of months. Maybe three times a year, for a couple of days.
Avatar n tn All my symptoms cleared up for a bit but now my sore throat is back, little white sore bumps on the sides of my tonuge, underneath my tongue is sore. There is also white spots on the back of my throat. It's not strep been tested.
Avatar m tn Underside of my tongue and bottom of my mouth under my tongue are sore. No visible sore but it looks like the salivary glands are red. Is it some viral thing or something else? Kind of has me worried. I've made an appointment with my regular doctor but wonder if I should be seeing a dentist instead.
Avatar n tn I know that I had a little white on it before but now it is alot worse and I noticed white spots in my throat. I have been very stressed over the possiblilty of getting HIV. what are the chances this is a sign of HIV. I have only given oral sex to TS and he only stuck his penis in my anus for a few seconds at a time. Also I had my penis in his for just a few seconds also.
Avatar f tn Now a few spots are a little bit redder and sore now. But I assume its due to all the brushing, and running my teeth over my tongue checking for any little problems.
Avatar n tn About 1 month after the test I develop white streaks along the border of my tongue that get really bad and thick and then go away and then come back off and on for about a month. Then my cheeks turn whiteish and feel rough. I haven't noticed anything on my tongue really for a couple of months now but the cheek thing is still there. THe problem is ALWAYS way worse in the morning. I sleep with life savers in my mouth (2-4 of them) to promote saliva during the night.
Avatar f tn About two days after I noticed the white spot I found a sort of pimple like lump on the left side of my tongue. I read on some forum someone else had the same thing happen when they had a canker sore, and they said it went away in a few days.
Avatar n tn i had white spots and a sore throat in february, told i had a cold. 2 weeks later i was in the ER with my tonsils swollen together and spitting in a cup. i was put on antibiotics and the white spots went away and my tonsils went down, a little. 3 weeks after that i was back at the dr. with swollen tonsils still and sore throat with white spots again, strep! put on antibiotics. tonsils went down alittle, white spots gone, throat better. 4 weeks after that back at the dr.
Avatar m tn But if the sores last for more than 3 wks or start spreading then pls consult a dermatologist. In that case herpes simplex I and tongue cancer has to be ruled out. Take care and pls do keep us posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn My current problem that is intermittently recurring is canker sore on tongue. My tongue always feels swollen and I can not stop rubbing it around in my mouth, as it feels like there is something on it. Did have sores in corner of my mouth, but have got those under control for the most part. Had severe episode of shivers with GI infection early October, BUT no fever.
Avatar m tn It would appear that I have geographic tongue... I have been brushing my teeth regularly, and also my tongue - with some success. At times my tongue looks almost completely healthy, and at other times distinctly unhealthy! I have spoken to my dentist about this and she has assured me that the condition of my mouth is fine - but would you be satisfied with my tongue (as per the pictures)...? I doubt it!
Avatar m tn But today theres a spot on the middle of my tongue that has no white on it at all seems kinda strange theres no whitish tongue thesers just no white moss in the middle of my tongue and on one side of my tongue its just the tongue color redish. this is the first time i ever saw this.but it seems like i have a slight sore throat on that side to when i swallow.what do you think this is?what would cause the white coat to come off my tongue in 2 spots?
Avatar f tn Well, the past few weeks I have had bad breath (I brush my teeth(front, back, top and tongue) I have also noticed some smooth spots on my tongue (they change day to day, size and shape) than I realized some little red spots on my tongue with white rings around them, I have also been feeling naucious a lot, now for the past couple of days my gums have been sore. I am extremely worried and scared.
Avatar n tn Please help, both myself and my 7 year old have got small spots that are sore to touch, on our fingers. My daughter has them on her feet and I have them on my elbows. We both also have sore mouths and under the tongue. My daughter also has ulcers on her tongue. My daughter started with the symptoms first. We both have a mild cold coming also. Just concerned tp what the spots might be and why the sore mouths?
