Thanks for the information
i have seen the picture. the tongue soreness is probably due to something you have consumed very hot or irritation caused by something may be tulsi leaves.
You should apply Candid mouth paint 4 to 5 times a day and take tablet Vitamin C once daily for a week. Use hexidine mouthwash 3 to 4 times a day.
Maintain oral hygiene.
All the medicines i prescribed you will be available
only on prescription.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Take care
Thanks and regards
