Re: Painful circles on my tongue
Check out geographic tongue. I have it as well, and there's nothing that can be done about it. It's an autonomic reaction, but not allergic.
I keep my fingers out of my mouth...such as licking them to turn pages, eating..etc. That's helped tremendously. But, sometimes lipsticks will trigger them, extremely spicy foods, dentist visit from the gloves..etc.
It's no where as bad as it used to be...at times almost my whole tongue was affected.
It's not a big deal, and if the pain bothers you try using OraJel for the mouth. It has zinc in it, as well as numbing agent.
Stress can exacerbate the symptoms.
Check it out and see if you fit the profile. If it is, become conscious about how many times you put your fingers in your mouth...and see if that helps.
Best to you,
It's all a matter of perspective!
