Could a bunch of little red bumps on the tip of your tongue and some on the side be caused by scraping your teeth across your tongue?

Absolutely. I have the same habit and often develop canker sores and little sore spots. I find that dabbing a little Sea Breeze on the tongue helps, due to its camphor content.

It could also be caused by eating hot or spicy foods or those with acidic content.

if your tongue is between your front teeth when you suck it, you get an open bite. your front teeth can also stick out. i suck my tongue too but instead of it between my teeth, i fold my tongue in half and then suck it. that caused me to have an overbite because somehow in folding my tongue and sucking it, it caused my lower jaw to go in hence my overbite.

Across the whole. The 'tongue map' said it belonged in a specific area but it was a mistranslation.

If your tongue is coated with white substance, believe it or not, that is a kind of mold. If your diet is not completely balanced, this can happen. To clear it up, when brushing your teeth, brush your tongue as well. Talk to your dentist about this and they will give you a special 'scraping' tool that you use on your tongue to clear it up. With proper dental hygiene, it can clear up completely in about two weeks.

A suddenly swollen tongue can be caused by an allergic reaction. A chronically swollen tongue -- in other words, the tongue becomes swollen over time and remains swollen -- can be an indication of hypothyroidism.

Blood blisters on the tongue can be caused by many different things. Some include trauma or injury to the area, biting your tongue, or an infection.

In order to have a healthy tongue you must purchase a good tongue scraper and you scrap the white thick film of every morning and evening when you brush your teeth. The tongue is an area where there is a lot of bacteria so scraping reduces the build up. you should also reduce you sugar intake also and white bread as this can give you a yeast build up in your body and the you get a white fur on your tongue.
