Spots on the tongue, especially the edges or edges and back of the tongue, is a normal condition. These spots are papillae which anatomically function as taste buds and that sense the condition of food entering the first digestive organ, namely the oral cavity. However, if the spots that you feel are bleeding and causing pain then it is necessary to think about the existence of certain underlying medical conditions. The following briefly can cause these conditions are as follows:

Need to think about the deficiency of vitamin B12, vitamin C and folic acid The presence of autoimmune disease conditions.
