1. There is food stuck in the papilla.
2. Inflammation, which can occur due to irritation or infection.
3. Vitamin B12 deficiency. Someone who suffers from this disease will be characterized by enlargement of the tongue followed by enlargement of the papillae.
Try to brush your tongue using a soft bristle toothbrush and rinse with warm salt water. Consumption of foods high in vitamin B 12, which you can get in the following food ingredients, namely shellfish, crab, sardines, salmon, tuna, chicken, beef, liver, milk, eggs, yogurt and others.
