How will folic acid help my Hunter's glossitis?

Since Hunter's glossitis is often a symptom of pernicious anemia, folic acid is used to manage pernicious anemia and Hunter's glossitis. Folic acid is a type of B vitamin. It is not necessarily a cure for pernicious anemia, which is characterized by a low red blood count, but it can help to compensate for the nutrients that are blocked by pernicious anemia.
