red stripe down tongue
An_224200 posted:
I have been home sick for a few days with upper respitory/head cold/sinus convention type issues. I have had an on/off fever for days. I now have a 1/2 inch red stripe down the center of my toungue and am wondering what this means. I have not been to the doctor yet as I dont have insurance but will go if need be.
