Hello Mira, thank you for asking.
The tongue often experiences various problems, ranging from canker sores to various infections. Generally, problems with the tongue accompanied by pain that interferes with the process of eating, drinking and talking. Some reasons that may cause sores on the tongue, including:
Mechanical trauma, such as being bitten when eating or bumping when falling. Sprue. Can be caused by lack of vitamin and mineral intake, poor oral hygiene, malnutrition, gastric problems. Fungal infections, commonly caused by candida albicans. Bacterial or viral infections. Malignancy. Try to choose the type of food that is easily digested by children. Try your child to drink lots of fluids. Brush your teeth at least twice a day. If there is no improvement after more than a week, contact your pediatrician. The doctor will conduct an examination and determine the appropriate course of action.
