Look at the colour

A healthy tongue should: Be pinkish in colour

A dark red shade: Indicates inflammation

A brownish or black discolouration of the tongue is caused due of excess consumption of tobacco, gutka and paan.

A strawberry pink tongue could indicate the onset of scarlet fever or Kawasaki disease

A thick white coating could be due to the over-secretion of bile in the liver and gall bladder.

When the tongue turns blue or purple, it’s time to seek urgent medical help.

White patches can indicate a fungal infection or leukoplakia.

Look at the surface:

A healthy person’s tongue must be light pink and moist.

Lack of normal texture called as bald tongue can occur due to deficiency of Vitamin B complex or Iron.

Patches or spots means the person could be prone to allergies.

A dry tongue is a sign of stress, since the salivary glands are not functioning at optimum level.
