Tongue Lesions Causes

The word lesion is enough to make your skin crawl, so a lesion on your tongue would definitely be something to squirm about. If you have a tongue lesion, you may be looking for the reason why.

Tongue Lesions Causes

Tongue lesions are symptoms of many health problems. They can show up if you are under significant, sustained stress, if you are pregnant and have large hormonal changes, if you have a cold or virus, and if you use tobacco products or drink alcohol on a regular basis. Other causes include malnutrition, anemia, mouth ulcers, prescriptions for other health problems, or eating extremely hot, acidic, or spicy foods and beverages.

All of these factors lead to changes in your mouth. These things affect what you put in your mouth to eat and the amount of time you make for oral hygiene. Bad oral hygiene habits contribute to increases in tongue lesions.

Types of Tongue Lesions

Tongue lesions can be any kind of sore, bump, or spot on the tongue. These include canker sores, enlarged papillae, tongue trauma (biting or cutting the tongue), Oral Thrush, black hairy tongue, and Kawasaki disease. Oral cancer and HIV are also possibilities.

There are many other types of tongue lesions, but each type can cause pain in the tongue if it is not treated properly. If your tongue lesion does not heal in 4-10 days, see a doctor and have him or her check how serious it is.

Treating Tongue Lesions

Treatments for tongue lesions vary depending on the type of lesion. If your tongue lesion is particularly painful, there are many prescribed and over-the-counter numbing agents available to ease pain. Other antibiotic or medicated treatment requires help from a doctor.

Oral hygiene is an important factor in preventing tongue lesions, especially brushing your tongue. The Orabrush was invented for doing exactly that.

The Orabrush has micro-fiber bristles made specifically to pull bacteria on your tongue that cause bad breath and tongue lesions. No other tongue cleaner is more effective and making and keeping happy tongues.

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."
