In brief: Fissured tongue +?

The fissuring of the tongue can be a normal variation and by itself nothing to worry about.
However, it is more prone to bacterial and fungal infections along with a host of other medical conditions that should be ruled out. The best thing to do is to see your dentist for clinical evaluation to determine the exact cause of your symptoms and what if anything need to be done.
