What is causing this be? White coating gone in the centre of tongue.
Aaron0794 Oct 01
So from last year I have this ongoing allergies. Which turn out to be dry cough and asthma. I was on counter medication with inhalers.
I completely got over the wheezing and dry cough with medicines. But I still have the throat irritation sometimes.

And about four months back, centre of my tongue colour I noticed slight pain and there is a colour change. The white coating in the centre part looks like disappeared to a flat pink region. Doc diagnosed it with vitamin deficiency. And I took tablets for three weeks.
Pain is gone. But the coating is not fully over it. I still have that region in light pinkish colour. Been there for four months.
And body also itches sometimes. No visible rashes. But I feel it to be very itchy sometimes. What could this be?

Seeing an oral surgeon or oral pathologist is advised.sometimes a biopsy may be needed in order to establish a definite diagnosis.

If you are asymptomatic and present no constitutional symptom, it’s not life threatening. However, your descriptions might suggest candida infection ,nutritional deficiency,blood dyscrasia.
