On a recent hospital trip, I came across this:
I laughed mightily; but apparently, it’s a bona fide medical condition.
According to the leaflet, it is a common condition where
“the tops of the tongue, sides and occasionally undersurface of the tongue develop irregular, smooth red areas, which look like the outline of a map. There is usually wavy white lines next to the red patches.
You may notice that after a few weeks or months the position of these lines and red patches change. This is why the condition is called erythema migrans in Latin, as its position changes and moves.”
– British Dental Health Foundation
But I think there is a missed opportunity here. And so I invite you to use the Comments Box below to suggest your definition for ‘Geographic Tongue’.
Your prize will be in knowing that you tested your imagination to its fullest and most enthralling extent.
