Thank you for waiting.
I am very sorry for her symptoms.
It appears to be enlarged papilla of tongue.
This can be from an inflammation or infection of the papilla of the tongue.
It can also come from exposure to irritation like hot food, spices.
Allergy to toothpaste, mouthwash can cause it.
Deficiency of iron or B vitamins are causative factors too.
Listerine mouthwash can be tried.
Lactobacillus yogurt can help.
Vitamin supplements can be tried too.
if the symptom continues, I would advise to get an examination by her doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Wish her healthy life.
Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
