Thanks for consulting HCM

Read your query as you soreness on tongue this can be due to Smoking habit , Thermal burn Nutritional deficiency or due to depapillation of papillae .
I will suggest you to consult oral surgeon for clinical examination of tongue and in meantime avoid hot and spicy food , quit smoking , you can take vitamin supplements by consulting with you local doctor .

Hope this will help you.
