    go to your doctor as you are right this sounds like an infection. antibiotics should clear that up fairly quickly!

    i got mine done last year and when i got it done there was yellow stuff round it but it turns out it was a bit of skin so it might be that hope this helps if it swells after a week fone the peircing place and tell them and go to your doctor

    My tongue is really really dry, like sand paper and I don't have a lot of saliva. Under my tongue it is quite swollen and the veins look huge especially on the right. I don't have any sores but my tongue feels like it is on fire and I can't taste anything, the taste buds are big and red/ purply... Any ideas?

    I think this might be tonsillitis. My little boy had this recently and he had puss like white spots on his glands.

    Since I had gallbladder trouble late 2012 on and off I will experience a white coating on my tongue, it is swollen and has teeth indentions in the sides. What is the problem and what can I do to correct it. Sometimes it feels swollen enough to interfere with my speech.

    I have cracks all over my tongue as well something called "fissures tongue" they don't know why people have it but it's not contagious, and says it does not require treatment, yet I would like something done about but I dunno what they could do to help

    My daughter who is 16 years old got her tongue re-pierced. The next day her tongue became inflamed. She has been washing her mouth every time she eats with either listerine or salt water. Her tongue now resembles chopped meat. The top of the tongue looks split and is opening with yellow pus coming out of it, the bottom of the tongue where the skin attaches is red and swollen. What should i do im really concerned?

    The tongue is infected, badly. If the ring hasn't been taken out, do so. Preferably by the person who pierced it. It sounds like the infection is at the point were medical help should be sought. Antibiotics are needed. Is their a reason it was repierced? Like due to previous issues or just because it was taken out?

    I had two very bad allergic reactions to antibiotics. My tongue swelled (9 weeks ago) Ii is still swollen and I have also experienced really bad dry mouth and geographical tongue.I have only just started incorporating foods back into my diet and yesterday experienced another allergic reaction to tuna (in which I was admitted to hospital). They have done all blood test etc and explained I must stay away from high protein foods. I have dropped 16.5 lbs in weight due to not being able to eat and my tongue is still swollen. I am very apprehensive taking any kind of medication now and the doctor prescribed me long term anti-hest tablets in which I have not taken due to fright and my tongue still been very large. What is wrong with my tongue???It will be 10 weeks on Tuesday I had my first serious reaction and my tongue is still very uncomfortable stopping me from eating etc. I seem to be getting no joy from medics and my dry mouth is driving me mad along with my swollen tongue. My BMI is now 17 (I was very healthy and fit before this). I have been advised to cut out all high protein food from my diet so what can i eat plus I am suffering now from immense acid reflux. Hope someone can help because I just want my life and health back.

    I don't know how to help with any of your symptoms with the exception of the dry mouth. I am on a lot of medications and my tongue and whole mouth get so dry it almost puts me into a panic attack. I do the obvious by drinking lots of water but, Biotene oral gel has been a life saver for me. They also have toothpaste, gum, mouthwash and spray, but the gel works the best. It's on the top shelf of the mouthwash & toothpaste isle at Wal-Mart, but I'm sure it could be purchased other places as well. I was going to suggest peanut butter as a protein for you, but with the allergies you've mentioned, I'm not so sure abt that. Maybe drink Ensure or Boost to help get some weight back on you? Best of luck to you and may God bless you abundantly!

    I think I have a scalloped tongue as I always feel that my tongue is larger and swollen and there are some teeth marks along the both side of my tongue. I even feel that I have bad breath and my tongue easily get coated up after having meal. I do brush my teeth twice and clean my tongue daily. But the problem persists. What should I do? Am I lack of some kind of vitamins or any supplement I can take to improve my condition? Please help.

    I have a swollen tongue and yes it bothers me with the teeth indentations and just psychological. I did something stupid I know but was scared. I was kissed by someone my lips were burning so thought it was herpes. so I researched on the internet and saw abreva. so I go to the drug store without reading it carefully. and put it on my lips because I was so afraid someone would see a cold sore on my lips. would rather have a cold sore then swollen tongue. well it did affect my tongue and mouth. it was extremely painful for months until my tongue healed. I could eat anything that had salt or pepper and no spices. I am just afraid now it is permanently damaged. when I put the abreva on my lips not a cold sore it hurt my mouth and tongue. never thougt something you put on your mouth could be so damaging. I am not dead and didn't die but just wished with so much advanced technology is there is any help to swink my tongue back to the condition it was before. any suggestions. I have tried several things in the past but nothing worked even predizone. thanks

It also feels swollen like it's too big for mouth but it doesn't look swollen. When the pain gets really bad I notice that it becomes more veiny - I've even took a picture of before and after lol. Do u know what this is? Thankyou x

    My daughter is four years old and has severely swollen tonsils, they touch when she sticks her tongue out, she has no other symptoms and I noticed this a month ago, is this normal?? I took her to a doctor, and they gave me a nurse instead who said they were just swollen. She also snores loudly. I've looked it up and found nothing, why are they swollen??

    Pie crust tongue..... Swollen with teeth indentations is a sign of hypothyroidism which appears to have been forgotten. Mucin makes the tongue swell. Are you on thyroid meds? If so, probably not enough.

    I ALSO GET SWOLLEN TONGUE AND CRACKED WHEN I EAT CERTIAN FOODS AND DONT KNOW WHAT IT IS,BUT I THINK THE PROBLEM STEMMED FROM GOING TO DENTIST TO HAVE MY FILLINGS REFILLED AND THE DENTIST MESSED IT UP CAUSING MY WHOLE MOUTH TO BE REAL SENSITIVE,SO I WENT TO A DIFFERNT DENTIST WHO GAVE ME DURAPHAT 5000 TOOTHPASTE WHICH MADE MY MOUTH WORSE AND CAUSED MY SWOLLEN TONGUE,BUT I DONT KNOW IF THIS IS COINCIDENCE OR THE PROBLEM WAS UNDERLINED,HOPE YOU CAN ANSWER MY QUESTION THANKS

    Maybe you have a latex allergy? I always suffered with a swollen tongue and blisters around my mouth after seeing the dentist - before I was made aware of my allergy by the hospital x

    When i got my tongue pierced it was swollen for about 2-3 weeks and i could barely eat. I had the exact same problem as the girl shown in these images and i used the same advice as she was given and it worked fine, now my friends all love my tongue piercing and i can do many neat tricks with it!

    over the past 3 months i had an allergic reaction to to washing powder, which nearly killed me, since then, every 2 weeks for the past 10 weeks, I wake up with a swollen tongue and need to go the hospital straight away, the doctors and myself are unsure why and what I am allergic to as I have not changed anything in what I eat or do. I have to carry 2 epipens of adrenaline with me now. I am waiting for results of blood tests to find out what else I could be allergic to. plus I am so so so tired and putting weight on. I dread going to sleep as I now know in another weeks time my 2 weeks is up and I may wake to a swollen tongue again
