What kind of tongue problem does your infant or young child suffer from?

Comment from: Shaili, 7-12 Male (Caregiver) Published: September 23

I wonder if worm or worm killing medication induce tongue itching. My son who has thalassemia minor has tongue itching and next day I also noted slightly dark circles under his eyes and tiredness.
