Tongue Pimple, White

Do you have a white bump on your tongue that looks like a pimple? Don’t be afraid. Many other people have experienced the same condition and there’s good news–it won’t kill you! Unfortunately, it might still cause some pain. Here we have compiled a list of some of the most common causes of white tongue pimples.

Causes of Tongue Pimple, White

Tongue Pimple White *from

White tongue pimples have a few different origins. Often they appear because of friction or trauma to your tongue (like accidentally biting or pinching it). When your tongue is abused this way it sometimes makes a white tongue pimple instead of a bruise.

Beware that after a white tongue pimple has already formed, more friction (like rubbing your tongue on your teeth) will just be painful. Try to resist pushing your tongue around your mouth absentmindedly.

Acidic, spicy, or extremely hot foods can cause swollen taste buds that may turn into white tongue pimples. At the very least, your tongue may have a burning sensation and become sore for a little while.

The most common and strangely annoying cause of white tongue pimples is stress.  These are not contagious in any way and are usually not caused by bacterial infections on the tongue.

A white tongue pimple can (in rare cases) be an indication of serious diseases like diabetes. Normal white tongue pimples clear up on their own within 3 to 5 days. If they last much longer than that, see a doctor to have the bump diagnosed and, possibly, removed.

Preventing and Fighting a Tongue Pimple, White

If you already have a tongue pimple, avoid sugary and acidic foods that may further irritate the spot. Some sources suggest using mouth wash or gargling with salt to treat the painful spot.

Preventing white tongue pimples is a little more complicated because the causes vary so much, but overall the best thing to do is practice good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss regularly, and brush your tongue to remove any irritating food residues from the day.

The best tongue brush is the Orabrush. It pulls food residues and bacteria build up from your tongue with its micro-fiber bristles leaving your tongue squeaky clean and ready for action.

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."
