just scared
Feb 24, 2001

I have like swollen tastebuds on the tip of my tongue is that possibly thrush?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

First of all, your tastebuds are primarily at the back of your tongue. Thrush is usually a white coating that can be scraped off easily. It doesn't sound like you have thrush.
