Why do I have glossitis?
Q: I am 29 years old. I have been suffering from glossitis for the past few months. I have taken medicines from various doctors, but the problem still persists. If I take the medicine, the burning sensation decreases, but if I stop taking the medicine, the condition arises again. Please advise.
A:Glossitis is any inflammation of tongue, which may be due to multiple reasons like vitamin deficiency, local ulceration, chronic irritation of any type, leucoplakia or lichen planus. Treatment may have to be taken for long time sometimes. Consult an ENT and/or skin specialist.
