Red Spot on Tongue

Are you seeing red? Or, at least, a red spot on your tongue? Sometimes when you notice a red spot on your tongue, it seems to be taking over your whole mouth.

Discovering a Red Spot on Your Tongue

Red spots on your tongue are generally a sign of vitamin B12 deficiency, acid reflux, oral herpes, or oral thrush (a bacterial yeast infection in your mouth). Less frequently red tongue spots can be side effects of Scarlet Fever and Kawasaki disease (normally affects small children with autoimmune system problems).

When you have red spots on your tongue, your tongue may swell or become inflamed. Normally large patches of the tongue turn a cherry red color, but this is sometimes only slightly different from the tongue’s normal pink color.

Other kinds of red spots cause raised bumps that can be very sensitive and painful. For more information on those kinds of red spots on your tongue see the article titled Red Tongue Bumps.

Treating a Red Spot on Your Tongue

Treating red spots on your tongue can be difficult without an exact diagnosis, so seeing a doctor would likely be the first step to your treatment. Once you know the cause of your tongue spots you can effectively treat the root issue.

For a red spot on your tongue from a vitamin deficiency, you may want to start by eating a balanced diet with foods high in vitamin B12.

However, if your tongue spot is caused by bacterial infection, you may need to include foods like pro-biotic yogurt that can help kill bacteria on your tongue. Cleaning your tongue regularly will also help to reduce the amount of bacteria sitting on your tongue that cause red spots on your tongue.

Cleaning a Red Spot on Your Tongue

An awesome tool for cleaning your tongue is the Orabrush. The Orabrush has soft, microfiber bristles on the head that pull gunk from the surface of your tongue, removing nasty bacteria that cause bad breath and sometimes cause red spots on the tongue.

With a cleaner tongue, your body will be able to focus on more important problems, like keeping you from getting sick and helping you get through a long day of work.

Help your tongue get rid of its red spots and your body will thank you.

Orabrush and Tongue Foam—The world's best bad breath system.

Better Than a Toothbrush!

Ultra-soft, pointed bristles reach deep into the uneven crevices of your tongue and loosen stinky bacteria. These bristles are designed after the surgeon's scrub brush, the same brush they use to clean bacteria from their hands before they cut you open. (Toothbrush bristles, however, are designed for the smooth surfaces of your teeth, not your tongue.) The scraper then collects and removes the bacteria and residue generated from brushing, helping cure bad breath.

    "[Dr. Bob] knew that toothbrushes, made for hard surfaces, would not work as well on tongues. He had researched ways to clean salmonella off raw chicken and learned it took flexible bristles to pry the bacteria from soft folds. Based on that, he hatched the idea for the Orabrush. It has soft, rubbery bristles for scraping across the tongue, back to front."
