    Default Geographic tongue - may b TMI

    does anyone have this?
    My mum and at least 2 of my cousins do, and now I think I might have it too.

    My tongue feels like its burning, and parts of the surface pop up, crack and sometimes fall off.

    Its very painful sometimes and I'm just trying to find out if anyone else has had this and what they do for the pain?

    NIkolaus has it Rayray. He always seems to get it when he's either getting sick or he hasn't eaten properly in a few days. I used to think it was some sort of birthmark. He's never complained of it being sore or painful, maybe has hasnt got it tha tbad but it looks pretty yucky at times. Will look into it more and get back to you

    My brother has it constantly. On doctors recommendations he doesn't have any acidic foods (pinepple, orange juice, tomatoes etc) and has to use a mouth wash after every meal. Most of the time he only uses the mouth wash when he's at home though. He's had it forever & it's quite a bad case.

    I've always had this come and go, but have had it the entire pregnancy. I find that the things Sarah mentioned set it off - acidic fruit like pineapple, kiwi fruit and oranges. It also happens when I get run down, so I guess that's why I have it during pregnancy. Mine is REALLY painful
