I developed irritation / inflammation on both sides of my tongue 5 months ago. I have been to 4 doctors, including ENT but none of them were able to give a certain diagnosis. My blood and allergy tests came back normal.
These are not sores but rather a red irritation that makes the tongue bumpy/uneven accompanied by thin purple waves on the sides of the tongue. I also get burning sensation on the tip of my tongue which is a little more red than before.
Overall, it's not painful, just unvomfortable and I'm worried it could be something serious.
I will appreciate any ideas/suggestions/advice.
It appears that you may have the condition known as burning tongue syndrome. Please google the entity and you may get detailed information. if results are not satisfactory, seeing an orofacial pain specialist is advised.
