Oral Surgeon: See the Oral Surgeon for evaluation and treatment. You may be pulling your tongue through your teeth in this area and may have formed this. Typically a simple surgical removal. If your front teeth have space or are worn/chipped, then they should be fixed to prevent recurrence. Good Luck. ...Read more

Needs to be seen: 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. ...Read more

There is some consolation in knowing that this information will help you if another outbreak ever arises. If you are normally healthy and without any compromised immunity, you will recover without complication. ...Read more
