Don't pimples on your tongue mean you've been lying???

Nothing helpful to say I'm afraid...

I get fluid-filled ulcers on the tip of my tongue when I'm very stressed (with ordinary stress I get them on the inside of my bottom lip). I normally use Bonjella to numb them a bit, but I haven't found anything that makes them go away - sorry. You could try changing toothpaste - I find Colgate or any kind of total treatment toothpaste triggers them for some reason, and Polo mints, so perhaps it's the mint flavouring that does it to me.

Sophable, could it be oral herpes?

My husband had an outbreak of that once and was in a lot of pain from it.

Geographic Tongue?

Rinse your mouth several times a day with warm salty water (as warm as you can bear). Spit out, but don't then rinse with fresh water, just let the saltiness go away on its own.

Have you had them for long, and are more coming out?

I used to have these - get some Anbesol liquid from the chemist. It's an antiseptic /anaesthetic and is the only thing that worked for me. (It's supposed to be stress-related btw)

Salt works, so do sore mouth pastilles, I think Boots do them. I find stress, and diet (too acidic) cause these.

Geographic tongue is different, ff, more like a layer is missing. I get it when pregnant, really gross.

Ahh well, heres a link to it anyway just incase someone happens to read this with geographic tongue here

thanks all of you. kate i'm pretty sure it's not oral herpes (nothing on lips at all, and these swellings are tiny, you can hardly see them) and ff it's deffo not geographical tongue.

thing that is getting to me is that where it is is changing, started in just one area on tip of tongue, now down sides a bit too, altho slightly less painful today (thank f*ck, it has been awful).

i have been down and a bit rundown recently, had tummy bug last weekend, and have felt depressed since dh has gone back to work after xmas...

any other suggestions? i'll definitely try the saltwater, thanks so much
