For the last 2 weeks my tongue and bottom lip have felt raw and tender. It started with a couple canker sores on my bottom lip which I thought was due to stress or food irritation. This happens fairly often to me. But, now I have a layer of white stuff under my tongue and on bottom lip. The stuff on my tongue almost looks fuzzy and can’t be scrapped off. I have pretty bad anxiety and this isn’t helping. Is this something to be worried about? Do you know what it may be? And ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

I was actually able to brush everything off the following day. Though I’m still curious what your thoughts are, if you don’t mind. I was getting worried because it had been over two weeks and nothing like this had happened to me before.
I was stress eating this past week because of work and may have indulged in a bit too many sweets. I read that stress and excess sugar could have caused this...not sure tho. I suspect I have some food allergies (and high stress levels) because I get canker sores more often than the average person.

Good day

White lesions that persists for longer than 2 weeks, sometimes have to be biopsied for possible malignancy. I would suggest going to your dentist for a full consultation. He will maybe start you off with a chlorhexidine mouthrinse, antifungal treatment or corticosteriod ointment depending on the clinical presentation and then follow up. If no improvement again in 2 weeks, then a biopsy will have to be performed to determine the diagnoses.
