Little V was dx with this geographic tongue
way before she was dxed with allergies(she was dxed with PA at 18 months and other food and ea,at 22 months).Point being her allergiest has said (with little V and little A twins) I will always know when their allergies flair up,look at their tongue looks like a road map, or lookes like it was burned.I found a link that has a lot of photos and links.Good info.

Any other kids with allergies have this?

The link doesn't work..
But yeah, I've noticed once in a while that my son's tongue looked like a map.

I still can't figure out what I typed in wrong.
Any way--after clicking on the link then click on encyclopedia and then click on G,scroll down to Geograghic tongue and click.
Hope that helps until I can see were I went wrong on the link.

[url="http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001049.htm"]http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001049.htm[/url]
When I click on your link ,I get taken to
[url="http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/00149.htm"]http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/00149.htm[/url]
(it's missing a 0 in 1049 )

My son was diagnosed with this when he was a baby (about 10 years ago). I later mentioned it to other doctors, all of whom had never heard of it! I thought the origial doctor maybe coined his own phrase but apparently not. Thanks for posting this!

Ds has this...I asked the doctor several years ago what it was, and she told me. Told me it would come and go, but no treatment needed or cure for it. Did not mention that how evident it was might depend on his allergies. I have showed his tongue to many speech therapists I work with and several had never seen or heard of it. I love being able to surprise a "speechie" by knowing something about the mouth they don't. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] Kristi

My husband's uncle has this, I've just realized. We were discussing his unusual food reactions over Canadian Thanksgiving a few weeks ago. He says that when he eats nuts, especially pecans, his tongue becomes very painful and lumpy and it takes days to heal. I had never heard of that type of reaction until I clicked on this thread. I've sent the link provided to his e-mail - thanks for sharing.

Wow, that happens to me too from many different types of foods. I just always thought it was too much acid or something like that. Who knew?

Before we knew about our allergic childs allergies I ate alot of nuts/peanuts and had geographic tongue all the time.
Since we no longer eat nuts/peanuts I have not had this - 10 years map free!
