Just today I noticed a weird white ring on the tip of my tongue. It hurts, almost like a canker sore, but is not numb like a tongue burn. Already researched geographic tongue, bacterial infections, thrush, etc, none of them sound like this. Here's a picture:

Any ideas? It wasn't there like a few hours ago. :confused:

  • Looks like aphthous ulcer...There are some causes: Incorrect method of brushing and cleaning the mouth, which can lead to ulcers in the mouth and tongue ulcers gradually. Use of toothpastes and mouthwashes, which contain corrosive substances such as alcohol. Does not have your food at regular intervals is one of the major causes of tongue ulcers. Eat too much spicy and hot filled food may cause an ulcer under tongue especially food items containing red chilies. Drinking alcohol and smoking and chewing tobacco irritates the language and language leads to ulcers. Excessive drinking hot tea or coffee in such a way that causes damage to the tongue. Dental irritate language, which can lead to language ucers.
