  • It can be haematoma which is there because of trauma like tongue bite or some irritation. Normally it is self healing and disappears with in 7 to 10 days but you have to be careful not to irritate it further . Some times secondary infection takes place. If it does not heal then you have to visit the dentist.For more info on lesions of tongue you can visit the following link on our website.....http://www.identalhub.com/dental-what-are-common-traumatic-red-lesions-in-mouth-655.aspxwww.identalhub.com/dental-what-are-common-traumatic-red-lesions-in-mouth-655.aspx
