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 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 m tn Definition By Mayo Clinic staff White tongue is a coating of debris, bacteria and dead cells on your tongue that makes it look white. Although the appearance of white tongue may be alarming, the condition is usually harmless and temporary.
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 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 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 n tn Hi there, White spots on the tongue can be seen with infection or chronic inflammation of the surface of the tongue. Certain oral infections, like Candida yeast infections can cause a white tongue. Inflammation and whitening of the tongue can also occur due to smoking, dryness. Few white patches on the tongue, known as leucoplakia can be precancerous lesions. A clinical examination can confirm the exact cause of this white patch. See a doctor and get it examined. I hope it helps.
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 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 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 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 // That is my tongue. I have geographic tongue and the annoying white coating alot. But yet, I'm HIV negative and STD free, and I do not have thrush.
Avatar n tn Although I know you can't diagnose over the internet does Oral Hairy Leukoplakia go through several significant changes? Meaning whole tongue then part of tongue then no tongue is infected??? I have been told by over a dozen HIV specialists I am negative based on my test results and timing so I don't believe what I am seeing is caused by HIV. Just trying to see if OHL has this kind of up and down history with it?
Avatar f tn About 3 weeks ago, I noticed some small white spots / bumps appearing on my gums. I have decent oral hygeiene (visits onc per year and very few cavitites), and it has me scared to death when I see web info about mouth sots being related to cancer and AIDS. Please help. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/242906'>white spots on gum that appeared suddenly</a>.
Avatar n tn my daughter gets white spots at the back of her throat when she get tonsilitus or as had a sore throat,
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 n tn I plan to get tested, but appointments for those take over a month to get here, and I could use some tough love or reassurance NOW because when I research these symptoms, everything points to HIV (sore neck, muscles, sores in back of throat with white spots, throwing up and shakes, and everything below as well, though I don't have any rashes to my knowledge or itching anywhere, and I wasn't bedridden with a fever, though I did have one that first day and I think I've had a small one on and off
