Question: Under my tongue
|EMO25 - Sat Oct 23, 2004 5:27 pm|
for the past few days every time I would move my tongue around inside my mouth and the underside of my tongue slides on my teeth I would feel a slight sting. every time this would happen I would just blow it off and not think twice but this morning I got sick of it and looked under my tongue and I saw two rows of soft spiky looking things going down the underside of my tongue. every time I touch them it hurts I have no idea what they can possibly be. Please someone help me.
will it go away???????? its very noticable

I cannot make out what goes on under your tongue without an examination. Nevertheless, as a household remedy, one may begin saline mouth wash (high concentration common salt in water), and maintain oral hygeine. If quite painful, over-the-counter oral anesthetic gels are available for temporary relief. But as always, it is best to consult your doctor for definite advice.
