Nothing to be worried
Hello again..Happy to see your rapid followup..
I saw through the images(which is not that clear) and I must say that nothing much to be worried from this view.Pain can be due to ulceration on the tongue .
It must have caused due to trauma while having food or due to some sharp food stuff.White patch is nothing to be scared of as it can be removed by tongue scraping(as seen from this images).Do slight scraping of tongue by back of brush or tongue scraper.
If it is non-scrappable it can be candidiasis(fungal infection) as he is taking medicine regularly for asthma . Nothing to be scared, its usual when you take medicine regularly. He must take Nystatin (antifungal gel) and apply on the surface but before that, please consult a doctor for physical examination as clinical picture and this images can reveal different situations. Have lots and lots of water. Have citrus fruits like orange, guava etc. Besides all these stay calm and stress free.
I must say that you should have visit a dentist nearby as the real clinical condition can give lot more explanation than mere images.
