I have had a sore on the side of my tongue for a while my dentist said that it is an ulcer & gave me some Difflum wash I went for a 2nd opinion at my Dr's & he said it's nothing. I think that I'm run down as constantly tired and have a demanding 5 year old. Maybe go & see your dentist or Dr it could be ulcers :-)

It can be vitamin/mineral deficiency - off the top of my head I think its B12 & Iron, but it can be down to other things too, so if its ongoing, you should get it checked out by your GP

Sounds a bit like oral thrush.

It could be "Geographic tongue" I get this and my tongue gets really sore around the edges. Best to go to your GP and check though.
