Respected customer without further information I can provide you a general answer.

The sore mouth and tongue can be due to many causes like:

Geographic tongue

Oral ulcers

Viral infections

Oral thrush

Vitamin deficiencies.

Chronic diseases

If you have this problem for more than 2 weeks now, it would be better to see your physician in person and get an evaluation. If it is an infection like thrush, you will need treatment for that.

I hope it helps.

Let me know if you have any questions please.
