Mine is sometimes very sore after eating or drinking something acidic - not everytime though. eg. I can go for months drinking lemonade and enjoying it, and then wham! it feels like it is eating into my tongue.
Salad dressings (vinagarette types can be a problem too once in a blue moon).
I think it just depends on how 'raw' it is at the time.
Mine was there for a couple of years . Finally went away with combination of Daktaren oral (for mouth thrush) and not using mouth wash for a long period of time. I have dermatitis and GP told me that I was probably getting it on tongue too so avoid the mouthwash which would irritate it more..
TMI but - I had nipple thrush while BFing and was advised to use it on my mouth, nipples and DS's mouth so wasn't used for the geographic tongue specifically - may have been a coincidence that it cleared up after that
Are any of you Coeliacs, or have you been tested for Coeliac disease? I've been doing some googling and there is a theory that there might be a link.
I had a blood test for Coeliac disease about six years ago which came back negative. My mum has been diagnosed with Coeliac disease for about fifteen years now, next time I see my GP I'll request another bloodtest.
My brother has it. He was showing his tongue to my children over Skype last week. He's vegetarian, with a very limited diet, and I don't remember him ever saying it hurts, but it has always been like that and I can remember Mum taking him to the doctor when he was little.
