Is there any treatment or solution for a scarred tongue? (Photo)

When I was little, I was childish enough to think that it would be fine to brush your tongue even using a toothbrush. I remember brushing my tongue very hard to get rid off the white plague on my tongue. But now I found my tongue is scarred (I am 23 yrs old). As can be seen from the picture, there are lines of scars on my tongue. And whenever I eat food that is sour, my tongue feel pain for a long period (around half a day). Is there any method to heal the scars in tongue?

Indentations or scars on the tongue

These indentations may represent creases from the muscle movements in your tongue.
