What did the ENT say? My son is 18 months and was born with spots that sound exactly like what you are all describing. One at the tip of the tongue, and 3 others at the top of his tongue. I was also told by doctors that they are not a concern unless they bother him, but I was also told they would probably go away and they are definitely not going away. My main worry with this is that nobody seems to know exactly WHAT they are and have never seen it on the tongue before.
At his 18-month checkup I pointed it out to the new pediatrician and he did not say much but told me he would refer my son to an ENT to see if they knew more about them. Two weeks later, after hearing nothing else and a bunch of phone calls, I found out that there was never a referral put in, and that the dr basically doesn't remember us and wants to re-evaluate his mouth. Out of annoyance and a busy schedule I told them we would just wait until his next appt (which may be at 2-years-old) rather than make an extra trip with two kids. I am wondering if maybe I should go ahead and make another appointment. (?)
We just want to know what they are!!! I am so glad to see this thread and know our son is not the only one.View Thread
