Brief Answer:
Geographic tongue is harmless condition.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing your query.
After reading your post, I would like to tell you that geographic tongue is a harmless condition and it appears at frequent intervals.
Providac contains Lactobacillus, colony of good bacteria which helps in the process of digestion and absorption. There is no direct role of Providac in the treatment of geographic tongue.
I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Regards. Thanks.
