Lotus Flower Tongue

A condition characterised by distention and protrusion of dark-red or purple coloured blood vessels below the tongue. Little growths may form resembling little tongues, hence the alternative name of baby tongue. These may join together to form larger growths resembling lotus flowers. Systemic symptoms may include tidal fever, headache with stiffness of the neck, difficulty in swallowing food, inability to speak and drooling. Over a period of time erosion may develop. This condition is usually attributed to Heart and Spleen damp-heat compounded by attack of exterior wind.
