Yesterday, Rachel came to me with a little problem. Her tongue was a little sore. She had me look at it. It was disgusting. Lauren described it best. It looked like it was balding. She had spots where there were no taste buds.
I called and left the pediatrician’s office a message. I needed an appointment for her ASAP. I was impressed that they called me back within the hour. We got her an appointment after work today.
I had never heard of it before. It is something that can’t necessarily be treated. It’s more of a nuisance that time will care for. But of course, I had to come home and check it out online.
I learned something very disheartening. BMG is common with people who have psoriasis. Psoriasis is known to be genetic. I have psoriasis. As if handing down fragile X wasn’t bad enough, lets slap on a topping of psoriasis. Talk about having some good genes….NOT!!!
