Hi amarshall687,

I am sorry your daughter is not feeling well however I am not able to diagnose online. Unfortunately I do not have enough information to a accurately guide you at this point.

How old is your daughter, what did she have last week was it viral or bacterial, how big is the area on her tongue, has it changed in appearance, does anything decrease the pain.

I am taking a guess and thinking that you should look at pictures of minor aphthous ulcers and see if her tongue looks similar.

If it does not resolve within two weeks I suggest that you take her into the dentist or physicians office. If you can't get in for a few days consider ting photos if the area to show the doctor.

Hopefully she will be feeling better in no time.
