I am a 28 year old female.. For the past few years I have been getting what I can only assume to be Geographical tongue. I have made that assumption on my own based on my own research done on the Internet.
Anyway, I am also an epileptic, so when I seize, I chew my tongue, which has caused me to scar the right side of it giving it some what of a bumpy appearance.
The reason why I bring this up is because when I get this geographical tongue, it is always in the same spot.
The right side of my tongue where the scars are located.
First my tongue turns a terrible white, dry color, and then I get a bright red bald patches over the entire right side of my tongue. It is absolutely disgusting.
The reason why I am starting to become more concerned about it is because, aside from the way it looks, it use to be that I would get the patches every couple of months. Maybe three times a year, for a couple of days. Now, it seams as if I get it every month for a couple of days.
also, this time along with the red bald patch, I have a small white spot. This is something that has never happened before. I do also get cold sores on my upper lip once a year or so.. Could this white spot be a cold sore inside my mouth?? It certainly does not look like any of the pictures of oral herpes posted on the Internet.
