Welts on tongue

04/08/2008

Question:

I get these clear colored welts on my tongue. They come and go and they are bothersome. Is this herpes or something? I am 4 months pregnant with twins. Is this normal?

Answer:

By your description, and if they are not painful, they are not herpes.  I suggest you have your local dentist check them.
