Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for posting your query on HCM. Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that it could be due to infection of upper respiratory tract probably seems like tonsillitis . All these findings can be present in viral and bacterial infections of throat . I will advise to keep yourself hydrated and take a multivitamin tablet to get relief in glossitis that you were mentioning . There doesnt seem to worry anything about. Take care. Dr. Shruti

Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, In any infection of throat the mucosa becomes pale due to dehydration also . Other thing is that your hemoglobin needs to be checked because in case you are anemic the mucosa will be pale . In how much time it will get relieved will depend on the cause why it is there.
