Question
I recently developed a small round cut on the tip of my tongue. Rinsing with warm salt water soothes to sting for short periods. What could be the cause and what can I do for a long term solution ?

Thank you so much. My last question is I recently started juicing and I'm wondering if the significant amount of Citrix juice that I am drinking could have caused the ulcer on my tongue
