Second pic is of my left tongue. Have been facing some burning for last 14 days and some white inflammation at back of my tongue(know it's a high risk area). 2 ENT surgeons and 1 Oral specialist say its nothing - and just glossitis and inflammed pappilae and normal structure. Should I follow up and push for biopsy ? None of them even entertained that thought and gave me vitamins

It does not appear sinister. I believe you have an autoimmune response to some substance. Did you recently (last 15 days or so) used new toothpaste, taken new medication(s), herbal or over-the-counter supplements, cinnamon products, oral rinses, spices, etc.? Your body (tongue) is mildly trying to reject/attack itself to rid of that substance similar to allergic response.
