Question
Posted by: Helen | 2003/02/17

mouth infection?

I have noticed "rings" appearing on my tongue. It looks like dark patches.
I think that it might be some or other type of infection, what does it origionate from ,
as I have never smoked and lead quite a healthy lifestyle. I am 26years old.
What can I take to clear up this problem?

Helen, it sounds like it might just be a geographic tongue (patterns on the tongues surface that come and go and are not a sign of any disease). I wrote something on tongue changes and if you want a copy, mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za. Good luck.
