First ascertain whether it is indeed geographic tongue. This can only be determined by a visit to the dentist. If it's confirmed by the dentist, nothing needs to be done as it is a benign condition and no further treatment is required
Next Steps
Consult a dentist

My First Point would be; are you sure it is geograhic tongue.I am asking this as geographic tongue will be having atrophic patches usually on the anterior part of tongue or upto body of tongue and also these patches will be wandering i.e will appear and then disappear and then may appear in some other part of tongue.... Secondly, the few cases of geographic tongue that i have seen last for a few weeks and then disappear...so i would advise you to get the diagnosis confirmed from a specialist oral pathologist..as there are a few other conditions that resemble the features of geograhic tongue but are some other benign conditions
Next Steps
As this condition is benign and self limiting,take multi vitamins ( b and c), avoid smoking/ tobacco etc and

first of all i would want you to know that geographic tongue is not a disease or infection,although it can get secondarily infected from candida. cause of it is unknown but stress can aggravate it. i would like you to find out the cause of stress, if any,and deal with that first. try to make a list of things which increases the discomfort like foods and drinks and try to avoid them. symptomatically you can apply any anesthetic gel prescribed by your doctor. if candidiasis present then consult your nearest doctor. in any case consult your doctor.
