Orange swollen tongue



my boyfriend had all his teeth pulled last month and at this point he has a orange tent on his toung and it will swell occasionally. What could possiably cause this and what can he do to prevent this condition?


It is difficult to diagnose this condition without seeing the patient. Return to the doctor who did the extractions and have him examine your boyfriend's tongue.
