Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

Since when are you having it?

How large is the discoloration?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
For about 2 months now, and all around the barrel shaped part of the skin that is attached to the bottom of the tongue
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.

Did you consult doctor or have any test?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, thought it was from snoring and having a dry mouth, but it hasn't went away
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for all the information.

There can be an inflamed sublingual salivary gland.

Trauma, irritation, allergy can be factors.

Dry mouth can be a factor for irritation.

As it is continuing for 2 months, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.

Please take plenty of fluid.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
