    This horrible, sore white thing appeared on my tongue yesterday. It hurts and I don't like it :(
    Anyone know what it is?

    I'm not sure what that is hun but if it's not gone in a week I would go to the GP. My brother had something similar on his tongue last year, it didn't go away after 2 weeks so he went to see GP and they did a biopsy, can't remember exactly what it was but was harmless. GPs are very vigilant when it comes to things like that in the mouth though x

    Thanks for your input, ladies.

    I'm hoping it's just a bad ulcer. I get little tiny ones on the tip of my tongue every now and then that go away after a couple of days but I've never had anything this big, this sore, or so far back!
    No, I haven't tried anything on it yet. I'm gonna do a salt/water rinse before bed and get some bonjela or something tomorrow. It really hurts!! Shame it hasn't stopped me stuffing my face all day though lol :)

    Has it been rubbing n your teeth?

    I had a small ulcer and because I was rubbing on one of my teeth with a filling it made it bigger, I just put on bonjela and kept it away from my teeth it went away

    Could also gargle or swish about some salty water aswell that'll clear any infection.

    Don't swallow though! Haha xxx

    Edit, just seen u had similar posts, that should do the trick xxx
