Brief Answer:
Please upload a photo so I can evaluate.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using HealthcareMagic to post your health query.
I read your question carefully and I understand your concern.

The underneath area of the tongue is darker because the veins there are very close to each other and superficial.

But what you can do is to either compare that to someone else in your family or send a photo to me so I can have a look and evaluate that. You can upload the photo to the reports section in this page.

Also, do you have any other symptom? Itchiness? Pain?

Looking forward to your follow up question.

Regards,
Dr. Papaqako
