Q.

Red spot

Hi Doc
I develop a red spot on my tongue and it last for few days and disappear , it rotates it does not stick to one place but it comes now and then, sometimes it sore, can you please tell me what is the course of this. Another thing when I am brushing my teeth I brush my tongue I don't know may be its because of that.

Thank you

you seem to be having a condition called "geographic tongue"

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geographic_tongue

brushing the tongue is essential.
