Hello, I have recently quit smoking maybe 3wks ago, and in doing so I developed a smooth tongue with maybe three bumps in the center and the surface is shinny and bubbly, after doing some research because i have no coverage it appears to be Glossitis how serious is this condition and is there anything I can do at home to help it and how long before it worsens or does it? Thank you in advance! Valerie

    home remedies for treatment of glossitis include:

    1. Maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing twice daily, flossing and doing mouth wash rinses.
    2. brushing tongue thrice daily
    3. taking vitamin B supplements
    4. also refer to a ENT specialist before taking anti bacterials or anti fungals...
