Brief Answer: vitamin deficiency Detailed Answer: Hi Since you had flu symptoms as well as nausea and vomiting your body is deprived vitamin B12. This vitamin deficiency leads to red tongue as well as inside mouth. Please start taking vitamin suppliments tablets from today. Especially that contain vitamin B complex. This will heal in a week with tablets. Let me know if you have any more questions. Regards Dr. Mahesh Koregol
