In the past few days I have noticed a red ring on the top of my tongue. Its empty in the middle, but the ring itself if painful and has expanded quickly over the last 3 days. I am currently being treated for ringworm (my son had it and my dog has it and now I do) which is on my arms and my check...and the thing on my tongue looks just like it. Is this possible?

  • I have red ring on my tongue too...I went to the doctor and he just said it was probably my immune system going into overdrive fighting off a virus and causing the skin on my tongue to break down... I think I will go for a second opinion. Did you ever get diagnosed?

  • My daughter has one too. She said it hurts sometimes when she eats. Have not taken her to the Dr. yet. Have you found out what it is?
