I have been to doctors, dermatologists and they have not helped me. My tongue is extremely sensitive to heat, spices, pineapple, tomato, etc. It has a lumpish white coating, it has sores with cracking and either burns, just hurts or itches. I need help this is driving me out of my mind. I use a rinse for acid and cleaning, but nothing drives it away, but soda water rinses etc soothes it. What can I do or where can I go to get aide???

  • You should go to a Chinese medical doctor. In chinese medicine the tongue is a n important diagnostic tool to show what is going on inside the body. Sounds like you have some toxic heat and dampness, which would explain why those foods make it worse and the white lumpy coating. The doctor may give you some herbs that would get rid of the toxic heat and dampness. As I practice chinese medicine myself - I would at least give it a try.

  • dudeyou may have acid tongue. Your PH may be acidic.I suggest you take 1tsp of baking soda in 5oz of water 3 times a day for a week. see if this helps. You may have to alkylize another week. See the earthclinic website for more info.

  • Check any medication you may be taking, including over-the-counter, for anything with naproxen sodium (like Aleve). It is known to cause sores in the throat, mouth, and blisters on the face.

  • It sounds like candida infection. This can be a sign of diabetes. Get checked out.
