thank you for your query.

Red dots on tongue may indicate
1.improper nutrition
2.weak immunity
3.microbial infection or some sort of autoimmune disease
4.canker sores
5.sometimes these spots are the result of broken veins and capillaries in the tongue.

The treatment depends upon the causes, but by following few precautions you an stay away from this condition.

1.Try taking bioflavonoids, which can be found in vitamin C. These help to strengthen capillaries.

2.B-vitamins – Deficiencies in B6 or B12 can lead to a swollen and sore tongue, along with teeth indentations and fissures on the surface of the tongue.

3.Iron – an iron deficiency can cause swelling of the tongue and painful sores in the mouth.

4.Vitamin C – keeps capillaries and mouth tissue strong. Bleeding gums are often the result of a lack of vitamin C.

thank you,
wishing you good health
