Thanks. I have a white/patchy tongue, Especially down the middle of my tongue, and in the back. The whiteness just won't go away. Should I see a doctor?
I think you should. Might be an .S.T.D. i learnt about an .s.t.d in health class that you would get white bumps and patches but i dont know it could be anything. im only 14 i just know what i've learnt. lol =]
It could also be yeast, which forms on your tongue as a result of a vitamin deficiency or poor dieting. Either way, when in doubt, get it checked out. Whatever it turns out to be, you and your doctor can find a treatment solution that works for you.
yes its geographic tongue, I have it. I take L Lysine which helps, b vitamins and zinc but you HAVE TO KEEP TAKING THEM or it comes back. I get it in times of stress but I dont think DRs know much about it as been a few times and they just say its harmless and uncureable! Annoying! I am sure there must be something. I had it 10 yrs ago too and it just went away eventually. But this time I have had it for over 2 years!
