Tongue ulcers

tongue ulcers

Tongue ulcers are among the most painful of the mouth ulcers.

A mouth ulcer can be located under the tongue but you can also get mouth ulcers on the side of the tongue. You CANNOT get a mouth ulcer on top of the tongue. If you have a sore on top of the tongue it is not a mouth ulcer as tongue ulcers are always under the tongue, on the side of the tongue or on the tip of the tongue.

A tongue ulcer is often very painful because the tongue is very sensitive. Mouth ulcers located on the side of the tongue or on the tip of the tongue are among the worst because not only do they make eating difficult but also speaking. They can also last longer especially if you inavertably bite them (ouuuuch!).
