Geographic Tongue

by Alison

Geographic Tongue is a new term for me. This came up in the office today as one of Cerina’s friend’s kids has a spotted tongue. Dr. Urban mentioned that it could be Geographic Tongue, so I had to look it up.

Apparently it’s not a harmful condition, it doesn’t hurt, and the cause is unknown. However, Wiki has this really cool pic of the condition, as well as an article.
