Sore Tongue

Sore tongue medically known as stomatitis is a very common symptom. Most of the doctors routinely prescribe B-complex tablets, terming it B-complex deficiency. In fact in many instances it is not so.


The most common reason of sore tongue where is tongue is red and bald is 'Antibiotic glossitis'. Indiscriminate use of antibiotics causes

(1) Disturbances to normal bacterial flora and over growth of fungus

(2) B-complex deficiency and lastly

(3) Chemical irritation of tongue.

Out of these factors, B-complex deficiency is the least important cause.

Some people get attacks of sore mouth or tongue very often. During the episode, ulcers appear on the tongue or buccal mucous membrane. They are very painful, look yellowish and are surrounded by a red margin. They may have varying appearances too. The important point is that these appear for no reason and disappear within a week or ten days. These can be termed as 'stress ulcers'. They are not harmful to the body, but are only of nuisance value.

Herbal Medicines

TURMERIC POWDER which is powdered at home is a highly useful healing agent in this condition. ½ teaspoonful of turmeric powder well mixed in a cup of warm milk along with some sugar should be consumed twice a day.

'ALUM' is highly useful in this condition. Some quantity of alum is fried over a frying pan by which it gets dehydrated and swollen. The colour changes to whitish. This should be powdered and mixed well with honey and applied over the affected areas.

Ayurvedic Remedies
