HI Everyone,
It firsted began with a smooth feeling in the centre section of my tongue a month or so ago. Now a reddish color has appeared on my tongue, but it is not painful. The only time it bothers me is when I eat anything that's spicy, example potatoe crisp, tomatoe sauce or sausages. Has anyone similar symtoms, and how does one overcome such a problem? I spray my tongue with benzydamine hydrochloride (Brand name, Andolex) but have not noticed any improvement.

Thank you for your time.

  • Smooth, red tongue can be a sign of vitamin B deficiency eg niacin deficiency (you may find yourself with a sore mouth or other symptoms next). I suggest you go and get a good multi B vitamin complex and start taking it to see if your tongue goes back to normal (someone deficient in one of the B vitamins often starts getting some deficiencies with the others).

I went doctor but he didn't understand anything. He gave me vitamin B and gargle. I used them then it's gone. But after that it come back.So i used vitamin B and gargle again and again.The reddish color is disappearing when i use them.But later it's coming back.This summer I went doctor again and he analyzed my blood and I have vitamin B12 deficiency. So he gave me 10 injection in every day.After that reddish color has become small but hasn't disappear.Now i has become bigger.Now i'm 23 years old and i fed up this situation.
