Burning, tingling, numb tongue- HPV?

tongue sores



Two months ago I had a canker sore, and swished four times within 12 hours with a mouthwash. The following morning I woke up with a burning sensation in the tip of my tongue. This lasted for about a week then everything was back to normal. A week later, the burning sensation returned. Since then I've experienced alternating burning, tingling and numbness on tip of my tongue and on the right side. Two weeks ago I noticed a red circle on my tongue  (not taste buds, my tongue appeared red under my taste buds) the next few days my taste buds disappeared from that red circle. That spot is now back to normal, but today I noticed two more red spots that burn.  5 months ago I had unprotected oral and am concerned that this could be hpv. I went to the doctor who said hpv is a possibility but he really isn't sure. He prescribed me with an acid reflux medication and I have a follow up in two weeks. I'm just looking for some peace of mind or any answers. Thank you

I have this exact same thing happen to me but with only one patch on the tip of my tongue. red circle underneath taste buds with swollen taste buds around it and balding in the middle. did you ever find out what it is or did it go away? I've been suffering for 3 months and I have been a wreck stressing and worrying.

I saw my doctor and he thought it was a vitamin deficiency but wasn't sure. so I tried eating healthier and taking vitamins and looking all over the web for answers. my sore patch healed up visibly for about 3-4 weeks but still felt like i burnt it but i didn't. I've had genital warts before and I'm scared it's HPV. it keeps coming back! and looks the same maybe a little worse every time there's more swollen taste buds.
