Welcome to Just Answer.
I am sorry to hear about your problems.
Some of the causes which can present with tongue swelling include;-
1-Infectious like viral (Herpes),or sometimes fungal
In this situation there are coatings on the surface of the tongue,white patches etc.
2-Poor hygiene and low saliva in mouth sometimes can cause tongue swelling and it can alos facilitate the growth of bacteria causing further swelling.
3-Exosure to irritants like smoke,chewing,alcohol spices.
4-Sometimes allergic reactions to tooth pastes ,mouth wash can also present with this.
5-Some other disorders like Iron deficeiency anemia,pernicious anemia, vitamin C and B2 (Riboflavin) deficiency,apthous ulcers etc.
So my suggestion would be to
a-Improve the oral hygiene,use ni-flame mouth wash for gargals.
b-Start vitamin supplement especially containing B2(Riboflavin) and vitamin C
C-Take plenty of fluids

A dermatologist is the best person to see in my opinion because most of the time the cause is mucous manifestation of some systemic disorder/deficiency it is not necessary the region invloved which should bother you
ENT has no role to play.
However Oral/Maxillofacial people can be consulted.
