I am having white patches on the tongue. They are round patches along with a lesion similar to canker sores. Normally, I get canker sores but this time this lesion seems to be little more enlarged. Is this a precancerous condition or if not then what medicines should I take?
I have gone through the image (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Do not worry. It is not any type of precancerous lesion. Such patches usually come when you are not taking good balanced diet and take lots of snack items. So reduce snacks and very hot and spicy food. Have more of fruits, vegetables, and meat (only if you are non-vegetarian). Such ulcers come when there is lack of a vitamin B complex in the body. It lasts for around 10 days and will then heal fast of which three to four days may be painful. You can use capsule Becosules (B complex) once daily for 15 days. Use warm salt water gargle twice a day for healthy gums and tissues.
