Hello everyone,  I have to say that since bring officially diagnosed with Crohns my sense of tast has changed and I always chalked it up to my medications.  I am currently down to just 4 asacol daily (two in the AM and two in the evening).  My toungue seems to be blotchy and have almost burns on it.  The back currently had a oval shapped burn looking mark that is pretty knumb.  Does anyone else get things such as this?  I get canker/cold sores and such more often since I have gotten older on the inside of my mouth, however I am just not sure about my tounge.  Thanks in advance for reading.

It could be a lot of you have any burning sensations on your tongue? Can you still taste things? Have you been on steroids lately?

From what you've said in your post, it might be something called "geographic tongue" which is just a benign process that pops up on people's tongues without any reason. It causes red area to appear and look almost punched out of the normal mucosa.

Or the center red spot (if you've been on steroids or an antibiotic lately) could be "median atrophic glossitis", which is a candida infection in the center of your tongue. It also (sometimes) has a lesion that looks the same on the top of the mouth.

Without seeing it, there's really no way to be sure what it is. But those are 2 conditions that sound closest to what you'd described. I'd recommend going to a dentist to have them check it out.

Hope that helps
