Possible cause


Stop the smokeless tobacco and see if your problem stops. Tobacco increases the incidence of oral cancer, so the sooner you stop, the better the chances you will stay healthy.

You need to see a dentist in order to evaluate what caused the white spot and now the soreness on your tongue and what can be done. These situations need personal evaluation and cannot be diagnosed or treatment suggested over the internet.

Tongue hygiene


Often the tongue will gain coloration from recently ingested foods. Try gently brushing the top of your tongue or use a tongue scraper to see if the color pattern is persistent. If it is, have it evaluated.

Oral Thrush


This sounds like oral thrush.Thrush is an infection of the mouth caused by the candida fungus, also known as yeast. This is not limited to the mouth and it can occur in other parts of the body. This is somewhat common in infants and is easily treated. You need to see your Dentist or pediatrician for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Salivary stone?


You may want to have your oral surgeon examine the floor of your mouth for a possible salivary stone. A stone that blocks the end of this salivary duct can cause swelling and tenderness of the gland it drains as well as the floor of the mouth until the stone is removed. Chronic blockage of the flow of saliva can also cause infection of the gland so visit your oral surgeon reasonably soon.

Black Tongue


Black tongue can be an overgrowth of the little hairy papillae on the tongue and isn't harmful. You can scrub the spot with a soft baby toothbrush twice daily & it should go away. (Also, think if you have given anything that could stain the tongue--iron drops, pepto bismal, metal teether)

Don't touch it !


Let an oral surgeon take a look at it. It needs to be determined if it is an ulceration caused by trauma or a lesion that needs to be removed. This is not something you can do yourself.
