Noticed ulcer and soreness in tongue

Dear Dr. Matthew Mintz
I have a very sore tongue. It looks like blotches of raw tongue where it looks like the skin came off. It is constant and very painful with a large degree of burning. I also have little ulcers (white dots) which also are extremely sore. It hurts to eat anything with salt or something acidity. Lately it has become almost unbearable. Can you help?

Hello, Welcome Thanks for consulting HCM,

I have gone through your query, as you have mentioned that you have sore painful tongue , dont worry it can be due to Nutrional deficiency , or depapillation of papillae .

You do is take one capsule Vitamin B complex supplement, twice daily for 5 days.

You can apply ointment Mucopain or dologel twice daily for 5days .

If then you wont get relief then go to dentist for examination and if necessary investigations .

Hope this will help you.

Hello, Thank you for consulting with HCM.
As you are mentioning that you have soreness with multiple ulcers on your tongue , it looks that you are having aphthous ulcers. Yes they hurt on eating salty food.

To get relief you can start with topical drugs like mucopain or pansorel gel to apply on the ulcers only 3 times daily.

Other then that you can also take a multivitamin capsule once a day. If severe you can also start with a painkiller medication once a day.

Hope it will help you.
