Could be a fungal infection. I am a nurse and I have seen cases like that. I feel that you should consult a doctor and get it examined. You will need a course of antifungal treatment for the same. Also some ointments would be given.
Hi, the condition may be Lichenplanus or Leukoplakia. Please get a complete oral examination done. Please consult an oral pathologist and oral surgeon. Biopsy of the tongue must be done because Leukoplakia has precancerous potential. Take care!
