How Long Does Geographic Tongue Typically Last For

How long does Geographic Tongue last for in terms of months/years? Is it something that eventually goes away? Or do you have this the rest of your life?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
But the cause of geographic tongue is unknown, and there's no way to prevent the condition. And also genetics may be a contributing factor. So, the condition resolves on its own and has an unpredictable course.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
