Thank you for the information,

I will put my opinion regarding the issue.

The symptoms seems to be due to inflammation of the tongue or glossitis.

After the use of antibiotic, there can be transient vitamin deficiency.

Other causes can be due to infection, allergy ,mechanical or chemical irritation etc

However it can also occur from dry mouth, smoking, alcohol, spices etc

An examination by doctor will be helpful to find the precise cause.

You should avoid using medicines or antibiotics without consulting doctor.

The treatment will be to keep good oral hygiene by washing it twice daily after brushing with tooth paste, taking plenty of fluid to keep good hydration .

Fresh vegetables & fruits can help to correct vitamin deficiency.

I hope this information helps.

Happy to assist, if you need any further clarification.

Best wishes.

When you blood counts & other tests are normal there should not be much bacterial infection.

You should try to remain calm & follow your doctor's advice.

OK YES ALL THE TESTS CAME BACK PERFECT EVEN THOUGH I DID SO MYCH DAMAGE PROBEBLY
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 4 years ago.
I feel if your vitamin deficiency is corrected, then it will be normal.

Do not worry too much.

Hope for the best.
