Due to superadded infection.
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
It seems that you have developed an aphthous ulcer or lingual papillitis on your tongue due to a superadded bacterial infection in the area.
is the first line of treatment for such conditions. Brushing twice daily and flossing afterward helps prevent bacteria from causing infection in your taste buds
. Over-the-counter medications such as OraBase or Zilactin can be used to cover the welt
, acting as a bandage. This prevents further irritation and allows it to heal without risk of infection. Another treatment to consider is rinsing with a warm salt water solution or mouthwash.
You can get proper antibiotics prescribed from your dentist
in case the welt persists.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
