Hey, ok well i have this question. When i bit the side of my cheek i got a canker sore. And i was wondering, on my tongue (like almost near the tip on the bottom side of my tongue) i had what it looked like to be a canker sore like the one i got on my cheek. Can a canker sore occur there?
Yes, canker sores can most definitely develop on your tongue. I've had them there countless times, and I completely sympathize...they're terrible!
Fortunately, you can buy some medication over-the-counter in most pharmacies that will numb the sore so you don't have to deal with extreme pain every time you drink a glass of orange juice (or anything else that is remotely acidic). Those medications work really well for me, you may want to check them out. Hope the little sucker goes away soon!
------------------ It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...
