Purple under tongue followed by yellow and orange diarreah in the morning and spotting brown for half a month now hi..well im only 21 and i just started having symptoms this morning...you see last night i ate chicken cor don bleau sumthn like that and wha

Purple is normal

Spotting
The purple under the tongue is from veins near the mucosal surface and is normal for that area and is likely not related to the spotting or other gastrointestinal symptoms. Consider food poisoning as a possibility as well.

What does it mean if I have orange tongue?

Not sure

Tongue
Assuming you haven' t been eating lots of orange popsicles, it could be overgrowith of a yeast or bacteria, especially if associated with bad breath or burning sensation. Try some live culture yogurt daily for a week or so. If it persists or if it is associated with severe symptoms, have it checked out.

What does yellow tongue mean?

Clean your tongue

Geographic_tongue
Start by cleaning your tongue with a tongue scraper after each tooth brushing, twice a day. They are available in most drug stores. If you smoke, then stop. If tongue surface bleeds this could be candidiasis and requires professional evaluation and medication. If using tongue scraper fails to resolve problem after a week then also need to your dentist for an evaluation.
