An extended tongue can sometimes cause many to react negatively, but the fact is that it is not entirely wrong to take a closer look at it from time to time. But any unusual things you find in your mouth need not be a concern, according to an article in the Country magazine.
Something like many think is a sign of disease is the pile of piles. There are big knots that sit far behind the tongue, symmetrically placed on each side of the middle of the tongue. Even though they are hard to see then they are easier to feel and many may be worried when they first discover them. But they are quite normal. Even a white or yellowish coating on the tongue is usually quite normal and is easily removed with some extra toothbrush.
However, there are symptoms that may be worth looking into:
White coatings and perspiration
A fungal infection in the mouth, caused by yeast fungi, occurs when the bacterial flora is in imbalance and may appear as white coatings on the tongue and mucous membranes, redness and irritation of the mouth and cracks in the mungipes. The risk of developing increases in certain diseases and treatments, such as diabetes and immunodeficiency diseases, as well as treatments with chemotherapy, cortisone and antibiotics as they weaken the defense of the oral cavity. Treated with antifungal agents, but also the underlying cause may need to be addressed
This is a fairly common condition, where many get a burning sensation in the front of the tongue. The inconvenience is often caused by dry mouth, sucking the tongue or squeezing the tongue to the fore when sleeping. But also hypersensitivity to materials in dentures and prostheses can be a cause. A soft-plastic rail inserted by a dentist can help.
Flammable patterns on the tongue
This condition is called kattunga and is a relatively common and harmless state where the tongue gets an irregular pattern with red-flaming areas. The edges around the flammable areas are often white-gray, and those who are affected can get both cracks and lungs in the tongue. The emergence usually does not hurt, but it may feel dizzying. The condition can not be cured, but it can help stop smoking and not eat strong foods.
This is a totally unlawful condition, but can be perceived as unpleasant by some. For the affected person, the tongue gets a darker color and appears to have suffered from extra hair growth. This is because the papules, where the taste buds sit, grow and grow longer than normal. A heavy scratch usually bends with the inconvenience.
This is something that many suffer from sometime. The symptoms are usually small and blisters on the tongue and in the oral cavity and are mostly harmless. However, care should be taken if a wound does not disappear as it may be a matter of seriousness, such as disc epithelial cancer – a form of skin cancer that is becoming more common.
This symptom may be due to a vitamin B12 deficiency. This vitamin is found primarily in animal products and is strict vegan and does not add up is the risk of shortage large. A symptom of B12 deficiency is a smooth, shiny, reddish and dizzying tongue. Even diarrhea, fatigue and memory disturbances are typical problems with the lack of vitamin B12.
White stripes, wounds and redness
These symptoms may be signs of oral lichen planus, an unbearable chronic inflammation of the mouth that most often affects people with autoimmune diseases. About one to four percent are killed and most common is the disease among women in middle age and older. Symptoms appear to be white stripes, sores and redness of cheeks and tongues. The disease can not be cured, but is relieved by fungicide treatments.
