red spot on tongue

Hi there,

Well ive had this red sort of spot almost directly in the middle of my tongue, its not really a dark red, it just is visible when I look in the mirror. its a bit smaller than a penny. It seems to be almost like the palpilae is kind of less evident in the areas forming a kind of circle around that area which makes it look like a spot. I originally thought it might be geographical tongue but i hear that it "Migrates" around your tongue, and this has been specific to this one spot. Ive been using a anti microbol mouthwash and scrubbing my tongue with my brush and its starting to feel a bit better, it seems to not be as noticable anymore, and today after just having a tea and cereal it seems to be fine. It seemed to have got worse a little while ago for a day or something and i tried to see if maybe food affected it, i have cut out coffee and gum for a while to see if that helps. I am 23 and in good general health so not really sure what it is. Also the spot doesnt hurt and somtimes has like a tingly feeling on it. its been about 3 weeks or so since i first noticed it.

Any ideas??

Did you ever get this figured out? I've had a similar spot for 10 days and would LOVE to have any insights on it. THANKS!
