I have always had cuts all over my tongue, some look like big slices, i also have patches of raw looking tongue with white outline which appear over the surface.
iv been looking it up and each symptom indicates a fissure tongue and geographic tongue but can you have bother?
when i eat certain foods, mostly sweet things, or even just things like toothpaste parts of my tounge swell up. sour things make it sweel up alot too like sour lollies. when i look at it i can see what i think is each individual tastebud but i dont know there red and the can sometimes be quite big and the cuts in my tongue all appear to seperate with the swelling. and i get a sort of tingling feeling, especially when i touch it, and it can sort of hurt to touch my teeth to my tongue, not like ouch but not normal either.
everything i look up deals with only one of these problems and i know a tingly tongue is a symptom of both but are the enlarged "tastebuds"? and what sets it off? and is that in conjuction to what iv described?
iv become very selfconcious of my tongue as i think its very ugly and iv notcied spots of colour moving around my 6mnth old sons tongue but very light spots and im affraid he might have it too. i just wana know what it is thankyou.
