Sore Tongue Causes

Why is your tongue sore?

Does your tongue feel sore, like it’s been wrestling with tiny mouth ninjas? Has it changed color or produced uncomfortable bumps? Your sore tongue could be the victim of many mouth maladies.

What causes a sore tongue?

Sore Tongue Causes *from

A sore tongue is sometimes caused by trauma (did you accidentally munch on it when you took a bite of that carrot yesterday?), burning tongue syndrome (only a concern if you are a post-menopausal woman), smoking (yes, smoking harms more than your lungs), canker sores (did you kiss someone with a sore tongue recently?), enlarged papillae (those taste buds you enjoy food with), colds and infections (cough a few more times and you should be able to tell), or oral cancer (very rare, but still a possibility).

Other problems like HIV, oral thrush, and Kawasaki disease can also cause sore tongues. One of the most common causes of sore tongues is bacterial growth on the surface of the tongue which allows diseases like Oral Thrush and Black Hairy Tongue to take hold.

Each of these causes has its own symptoms and treatments, however, chances are, your sore tongue needs a little more love and a little less action. Take some time to evaluate how you’re caring for your poor pink ally–has your sore tongue experienced any unusual activity lately? Does he need a hero helper?

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."
