    Lately my tongue has a lot of little pimples and some really big cracks on the surface. Does anyhone know what could cause this? I am alredy drinking a lot of water , and as far as I know, I am not eating anything or taking amy meds I am allergic to.

    I would be greaeful for any ideas. Thanks. Terry

    Several people in my family have this (or what sounds like what you have described) and we have always called it a geographic tongue. It looks like a map when you look at it in the mirror. I notice it the most when I eat fruit. Especially pineapple and strawberries. Sometimes it even swells and I have difficulty talking.

    B Vitamin deficiencies possibly. A deficiency of some sort anyway.
    Seeing some irregularities in my tongue tonight had me starting to research this before I saw your message.

    Love,
