    hi, I've had a problem with my tongue now for a few months i have always brushed my teeth and my tongue three times a day. But 3 months ago i noticed that i had red/white spots at the back of my tongue a few days after noticing these my tongue became covered in a white coating, which looks horrible i went to see my doctor, and was told it was oral thrush and was given something to put on my tongue two weeks of using this did nothing so i again made another appointment with my doctor this time getting told that the white coating on my tongue was from dehydration and the spots was normal, although i drink a lot of water, anyway i was given some gel stuff to put on my tongue but it just seems to be getting worse... and i don't know what else i could do, i've tried using a tongue scrapper but the white coating just keeps coming back .... advice would be very much appreciated.

    I'm 16 years old and so i did oral with my boyfriend and i noticed i had really foul breath afterwards along with a white-ish looking tongue. I went to go brush my teeth along with my tongue and i think its somewhat better. Also my tongue is back to a normal looking pinkish color in my opinion. Can doing oral lead to a white looking tongue and or bad breath? I did some research just to be safe and apparently symptoms of HIV can cause white tongue. The thing is i'm not experiencing an other symptoms of HIV and that my tongue isn't white anymore after brushing. And that my boyfriend and i are sure we dont have HIV and or AIDS. I'm confused. Either i have a really bad brushing habit causing my breath to smell bad and the white tongue and or something else? please help

    For as long as i remember, i have had a rather strange white coating on the back of my tongue and when i looked further into the back of my mouth, there have been small but very visible lumps/spots at the sides and back of the tongue and even bigger lumps at the centre of my tongue. I tend to get bad breath and i can scrape off this 'white stuff' and it smells. is this normal?

    Hello, I also had that, it was because i was not brushing my teeth regularly. Its probably a build up of dead skin cells. It could also be from dehydration. A more concerning cause of this could be thrush or candidal infection which is a form of fungus. you might want to go check with a doctor just in case and if it is thrush. All of these should be solved relatively simply :) a course of medication suited to your symptoms, I wouldnt worry about it ^_^

    back of my tongue has swollen taste buds, also surrounding these are a white substance. when i brush my tongue most of this white stuff comes off but it will come back within the day, so i have to brush my tongue everyday to get rid of this white stuff. it's not painful, but is embarrassing. does anyone know what it is?

    I have recently had my tongue pierced, it was 5 days ago and it still feels quite sore and tender, I have been using mouthwash but it isn't alcohol free, there seems to be a dip in my tongue where the top of the bar is, almost like a crater where the top ball lies when I close my mouth, eating has been fine but I'm worried about the yellowy/white colour on my tongue, it also looks like it's splitting in the middle, thankyou

    My tongue is really sore and so are my gums. I went to the dentist and I don't have gum disease or anything like that. My tongue is a bit red with little tiny white bumps and when I brush my tongue it bleeds. I sleep with a mouth guard on my bottom teeth to prevent damage when clenching so could that be why my bottom gums hurt?? Please help..

    My little girl is 3 n half n has been diagnosed with Lymphangioma of the tongue! she has had it since birth but was not diagnosed until 18 months ago & last year her tongue swelled up that much she had to have a tracheostomy fitted! the swelling then went down and the took the trachy out! her tongue is still on the larger side and she gets lots of spots on the end ranging freom white to blu/purple! we have been told they could debulk the tongue but i think that is a very dramatic procedure for a little girl to go through! i just want to know if there are any other procedures that could be helpful! i heard the doctor talk about long term antibiotics? when she has a flare up she goes in hospital and has steroids but her breath is very very smelly when this hsppens and im also wondering why this happens?!!!

    Hi I'm aged 20. I have had a white coating on my tongue for over a year and have been terribly sick before with this. I have bad breath but not all the time I brush my teeth and tongue twice day to prevent my tongue getting any worse but it seems to not got away at all. The GP has said it could be due to stress and depression so I'm currently taking anti-depressants and have been on them for nearly 3 weeks and no sign of my tongue getting any better also I take acid tablets and still no sign of it getting any better. Any ideas what this annoying tongue of mine is doing?? thanks

    Something is out of balance, so best is to become in balance again. Go to a good nathuropath or classical homeopath. If anti depressives are not realy neede than stop with them or take as light dosis as possible. 'bodytoxins' can leave a layer/coating on tong. After getting up in the morning do not drink: first do oil-pulling or use a tongue scraper.

    i have a yellow or white coating on my tongue and small lumps all down the back of my tongue. i noticed them after having a bad case of tonsilitis, but they have gotten bigger over the years and i have bite marks on my tongue and bad breath i brush 2 to 3 times a day always use mouth wash and floss my teeth are perfect just my tongue and troat. please help.

    I believe the yellow/white coating is bacteria which is what causes bad breath. You can use tongue scrapers to get rid of this but I definitely find the best tongue scraper is the OraBrush - go to orabrush.com to find out what it is. They sell them in Boots so it's best to get them from there rather than paying for delivery from the US.. I have 2, they are fantastic.

    Colonics will remove it, in my experience.

    Honey you have systematic candida; that is why your tongue is white. Brushing and tongue scrapping will not delete whiteness. You have to kill candida/yeast from the inside. Look up systematic candida and search information if you haven't done so already. This is probably a late post. I speak from personal experience.
