Consultation: Have the Dentist or Oral Surgeon see this. It may be that the duct is blocked and the saliva is backing up in the gland - this will cause swelling and pain. ...Read more

2 year old has a white pimple on jaw under tongue. Has cold/cough now and has been scratching around his neck and back of legs. What is this pimple?

MD and DDS: First have your child seen by your pediatrician or family physician, who can evaluate the entire situation. If your physician feels that he\she should also be seen by a pedodontist (pediatric dentist), that would be a good idea also. I hope your child has already been seen by one, which is recommended by this time anyway. We can't diagnose the pimple without actually seeing it. ...Read more

See a dentist ASAP: You need to see a dentist/ md immediately for proper diagnosis and treatment. Fortunately, the majority of tongue problems are not serious and most can be resolved quickly in some instances, though, a discolored or painful tongue can indicate more serious conditions, including vitamin deficiencies, aids, or oral cancer. For this reason, it is important to seek medical advice. ...Read more

Health anxiety: That's a common problem and CBT therapists are really good at helping you lessen it. Often it's a good idea to have an exam and explanation of the results along w/ what they would look like if you had the illness. This will rule out your fear and educate you. Being in the dark is scary - facts are a light. You can learn in CBT if you seriously try. Best! ...Read more

Why would the muscell under my tongue swell up mainly the left side the under my tongue muscels swelled up mainly left sife feels like even pimples under but not on tongue

Swelling : Swelling under the tongue caused by a deep infection can be very dangerous. Luckily it is rare. The common name for that problem is ludwig's angina (i have no idea who ludwig was). It this were your problem, you would be extremely sick with high fevers. I think that your problem woudl most likely be some type of inflammation of the salivay glands under the tongue, maybe due to trauma or dental issues. We also cannot rule-out tumor (also rare). If things get worse, you should see a dentist or doctor. Some thinkgs that may help narrow down the possibilities would be knowing if it hurts, how long is it there, are there any other symptoms. ...Read more
