Painful Sore Tongue
Biting your tongue, or scalding it on a hot food or beverage is a common tongue trauma. This can cause painful sores. Another cause for pain may also be your habit of teeth grinding or inflamed taste buds. Inflammation can cause tiny bumps to form along the length of your tongue, resulting in pain and soreness. Excessive smoking can cause some tongue problems. A minor infection on the tongue is not uncommon and can cause pain and irritation. A canker sore is another common cause of pain on the tongue. Other, less common reasons for tongue pain include cancer, anemia, oral herpes, and irritating dentures or braces.
A yellow tongue may indicate jaundice, gallbladder or liver problem. Usually, a yellow tongue is harmless and temporary. Good oral hygiene is the best treatment for a yellow tongue.
Geographic tongue is named for its map-like appearance. A geographic tongue may be sensitive to certain substances, but the condition is harmless. While the cause of geographic tongue is unclear, genetics may play a role in its development.
