Weird rash on tongue
Hi there, I have this weird problem with my tongue, it looks like what youd call "Geographical tongue". It doesn't look very nice at all and is sometimes quite uncomfortable, especially in the morning. Local doctors don't know what it is and I've tried lots of different things, all of which haven't worked. People online say it just comes and goes but it's been pretty much constant for over a year now and it's starting to effect my confidence and sex life etc. I know it isn't an STD but other than that I can't rule anything out. Can you help?

If it is geographic tongue, there is no cure for it. Avoid spicy and acidic foods. However it is best to have the diagnosis confirmed first- see your dentist
