Hi,
The problem is an ulcer beneath the tongue. It could be an aphthous ulcer which occurs due to stress or vitamin B deficiency. Any sharp tooth or trauma also can result in the ulcer. Apply Dologel ointment 10 mins before food 3 times daily and take vitamin supplements for 2 weeks.

My frenulum under my tongue is a little swollen and red on one side. I do take advair but have never had any side effects. It s not very sore just a little irritating because of the location. My tongue doesn t hurt. Should I just gargle and wait for it to go away?

Hello, my daughter, who is otherwise healthy, has developed, in the past two to three days, unexplained swelling of her tongue. The only medications she takes are multivitamins and Lo-estrin birth control pills. She is under the impression the swelling may be due to a hormone imbalance.. What do you think?

i went to the dentist last year and under my tongue looks like i have (and he said) i had a bone deformity because it looks like jagged bones growing out from my gums. but my jaw muscles have been really tight and my tongue has been swollen. i massaged my inside muscles and they began to go down, i started massaging my swollen gums.. and i felt fluid go down my throat. alot of it. i felt the tissue getting smaller and my tongue too. i decided to catch some of the fluid in a glass. it was clear with some type of white stuff in it. my nose has been running clear for a week, and my ears hurt terribly. my glands are swollen, the inside of my cheeks and all the way to my cheek bones. when i squeezed my tongue, i could feel the extra tissue from the swelling where the fluid had left. what should i do?
