It is generally the inflammation of the taste buds due to some reason. The reason of these may vary in a vast way; it may be caused by diabetes, or some allergic reaction to some food eaten.
Sometimes these pimples are also seen to have occurred due to improper cleaning of the mouth. Improper hygiene of the mouth results in summation of dirt particles, in the top layer of the tongue, and the pimples crop up for the very reason they appear on the face. If one is suffering from a viral fever or any such infection, then the pimples on the tongue could be a result of that too. These ‘pimples’, are often known as papillae.
Sometimes they are noted to have healed by themselves, in time. But sometimes, medications or proper care and treatment are needed for the cure of this condition. If one tries to face this situation with normal medications that he/she would’ve used, when pimples are on the face; that does not work in this situation. Even doctors don’t go to that length unless the situation is very bad. So, one is left with only natural remedies. Before trying out any remedial process, has the condition checked by a doctor.
This is a very simple natural remedy which can be applied at home only. Take a glass of water and put on the fire to heat to temperature where it is warm but not too much. You should be able to take the water in your mouth. After bringing the container down from the stove, mix in it a tablespoon of salt. Mix the solution and gargle with it. Repeat 2-3 times in a day. If you experience too much pain (you should not), stop doing it and let the heat subside more. This will help to stop the spreading of the pimples further.
The mint leaves may also be able to help you with this condition. Have some fresh mint leaves picked up; then while you’re turning in for the day, chew those mint leaves and let the juice play over your tongue. This should help the pimples to grow smaller.
Make a mixture of ½ a cup of water and ½ a cup of Hydrogen Peroxide. Take up a cotton swab and dip in the mixture. After you’ve gargled with a mouthwash, dab this cotton swab on the pimples. This solution is tested and found to have the power to kill the bacteria, which may cause further pimples.
During the reign of this condition over your tongue, eat only soft foods and refrain from eating or drinking highly acidic dishes such as fast foods. Also remember that some fruits are also acidic in nature and can cause irritations on the tongue and be a reason of spread of them.
This treatment does not apply to every kind of tongue pimples. Some pimples are formed due to deficiency of vitamin B; so eat foods rich in Vitamin B or such supplements.
Milk Of Magnesia
This is another tested treatment for this condition. Dab a cotton swab, in milk of magnesia and apply on the pimples. The pimples on tongue are similar to that of on faces in a way that is, they tend to subside when not meddled with and taken proper care of.
