Dont worry: These are lymph nodes and you need not to worry much about them. Avoid spicy and oily food and add multicitamin and it should go away in a few weeks. Good luck. ...Read more

This morning i found little red dots on the tip of my tongue, and at the back my tongue is white, what is that? I think i woke up sick.

Don't worry: In general, i tell my patients not to worry about what their tongue looks like. The tongue has an amazing ability to look different at different parts of the day, people often get very concerned about it. If your tongue doesn't hurt or bother you in any way then leave it alone and you will be fine. ...Read more

Tough to say: without a visual of what you are describing. It's very possible that it's a normal condition of the tongue because there are indeed many bumps on the tongue. Sometimes a map-like pattern of reddish spots can occur, called geographic tongue, which is harmless. If you have a fever as well, get checked ASAP to rule out scarlet fever which needs prompt treatment. Have someone take a look either way. ...Read more

Hemangiomas?: A few painless red dots on the skin, on the penis or anywhere else, usually are not abnormal. Most likely they are small hemangiomas, i.e. blood vessel "moles". They are harmless and often become more common as the years pass. No STD or any other serious health problem is a likely cause. But see a doctor for reassurance if you remain concerned. ...Read more

What does it mean if the back of the tongue is white with little red dots?

What does it mean if the back of the tongue is white with little red dots?

Normal: The red dots are taste buds but an accumulation of "white" material on the back of the tongues means you're not cleaning your tongue properly. After brushing use a tongue scrapper to remove the white plaque from the back of your tongue. ...Read more
