Stomatitis is one of the common oral health problems suffered by young children. It is characterized by soreness and inflammation of the mucosal membrane in the mouth. The typical locations of stomatitis include the cheeks, lips, gums, and tongue.
To judge the severity of a sore on the tongue, you need to assess its appearance and the symptoms. Small sores on tongue can be a canker sore, cold sore, a tooth related abscess or a sore due to tongue bite.
