Should I be worried that my toddler has white spots on tongue?

See Pediatrician

Tongue
There is no way to diagnose 'white spots' on tongue over the internet. Please take your toddler to the Pediatrician for a personal exam. It may be normal or it may require treatment (if it's Candidiasis/Thrush or something else).

I had a white spot on the end of my tongue which was sore I was constantly rubbing it now my tip of tongue is covered in red spots which is so sore?

Needs to be seen

Tongue_sore
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.

Soar taste buds. Red raised spots on tip of tongue. Taste buds are the only spot effected. Use chewing tobacco?

Possible cause

Chewing_tobacco
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.

My tongue is green with red spots towards the back and a single large spot running down the middle and my throat hurts.What's going on?

Tongue hygiene

Sore_throat
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.

How to remove an irritated white spot under my tongue?

Don't touch it !

Wounds
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.

Could a white spot on the side of my tongue be a cancer?

Probably not

Cancer_in_household
Most likely it is just a benign "white spot." However, without seeing it, it is impossible to say for sure. Best to have your dentist or doctor take a look at it.

Might be

Could be a blister or a clogged salivary duct or an ulceration. Most common = ulceration. Rinse with warm salt water and keep an eye on it. If it worsens, see your dentist.
