"Geographic tongue", glossitis migrans transitoria - Image
"Geographic tongue", glossitis migrans transitoria, is a benign condition, which is often erroneously diagnosed as an infection caused by Candida albicans. There is so far no sensible, effective remedy for this condition, which spontaneously disappears, only to reappear later at another location. Do not "treat" it; only explain.
