Blood spots under tongue
I''m a middle aged female, and have recently discovered what looks like a lot of tiny burst blood vessels under my tongue, they form blood blisters. No pain at all. I have no health problems otherwise. Should I be worried?

It is important to consult your GP in order to have these lesions examined, as it is necessary to visualise it to make a diagnosis. It is however, possible that it is caused by eating food that has a rough texture, like salty patato chips etc.
