I get white painful bumps on my tongue every time i drink beer. Is it a coincidence? Can alcohol cause that? I've never had herpes but could i on tong

Sensitivity to beer: Since u say it happens every time u drink beer, i would say that precludes it being a coincidence. I can't say for sure what ingredient in the beer is the offending agent, but clearly u r sensitive to something in beer. And "sensitive" u can read as "sort of allergic". It could be wheat, could be any number of things. Try switching brands. Try a diff't liquor, like spirits, to see if same thing ha. ...Read more

Remove Piercing!: First, I have to say, as cool as tongue piercing may be to you now...It is a wrecking ball to your mouth! the damage, even with a 'soft rubber ball', is staggering.
