Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

White papillae which is painful may be arised due to ulceration of papillae.

Avoid intake of spicy foods.

Floss your tongue daily with tongue scrapers.

Take corticosteroids as well as vitamin becosules.

Rinse your mouth after every meals.

Discontinue the habit of tobacco or pan chewing if you practise any.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
This appears to be mucositis of the tongue. You need to take mutivitamins and drink plenty of warm water to improve the blood circulation and reduce the mucositis. Avoid alcohol/smoking if any also avoid excessive spicy food/coffee/tea.
Take care
