Pimple on Tongue

08/03/2010

Question:

My 3 year old has a white bump or pimple on right side wrapping around bottom of tongue. What could it be?

Answer:

I'm sorry but your description is confusing. When I think of a pimple, I don't think of something that can "wrap around" anything else. I might be able to help with a more detailed explanation of this bump, including estimate of size, precise location in relation to the tongue and the floor of the mouth, how long it has been present and whether you have noticed if it has changed in size or shape.
