My son's tongue constantly kind of splits on the tip and he has fever when it happens. It also bleeds and is painful and he can't eat.

I have what looks like a skin tag on my tongue. Mildly painful every once in a while but I know it's there, if that makes sense.

I have two one inch white patches on both sides of tongue near teeth. I have had an extreme cough for almost two weeks. I wonder if this is caused from coughing.

I have had a problem with vaginal itching, hemorrhoids, and now suddenly I have hard blister-looking sores on the back of my tongue and the sores on my tongue have little to no pain.

My tongue problem is, it feels as if the veins underneath are pulled up, or there is a blockage somewhere. I can't eat or swallow.

My tongue is sore in the middle, like cuts in the middle of my tongue, though I have not cut it with food or anything else. Color is normal red. No other discolorations.

I have burning tongue for 44 years since the birth of my son. It started with dry mouth, full tongue in mouth. I have some saliva now but tongue is still full in mouth and burns. It"s like always being aware of my tongue.
