White Tongue 3 Months, Any ideas?

Recommended Posts

InNeedOfAnswers

Hello everyone,

I have posted a few times now and am now 5 months post exposure and experiencing lots of symptoms. However, the main one which is stopping me getting on with my life atm is a consistent white tongue with bad odour (see picture on link below)

Forgetting all my other symptom for now, has anyone got any advice on treatment for this?

I have just went through this the last couple of weeks.  I wear a night guard and breathe through my mouth.  I brushed my tongue and gargle with hydrogen peroxide and it almost gone.

@Tulip79 ok thank you for your reply, does it reoccur for you frequently? Or once you clear the issue does it go for a while?

It has only happened to me once that I know of.  I am wearing a new night guard, and I think breathing through my mouth is causing a bacteria build up.  It did concern me at first, as it was all over the top of my tongue and very rough, causing a sore throat.  The peroxide seems to help.

What dont you deal with?  You have quite an impressive list of symptoms. I think you will probably win a Nobel prize for finding new, undiscovered deathly diseases.  You rock Dude!

Stay away from Blurnie for starters. He is certifiable.

White tongue is not suggestive of Herpes.  Try brushing your tongue and gargling.  Everyone gets that from time to time.

If really bothers you, check with your Dr.  He may have a recommended treatment or some type of antibiotic.  Otherwise.  You are ok.

@Muscha yeah it doesn’t go away I’ve tried mouthwash.

My doctor gave me anti fungal drops and they only worked temporarily before the white coating reappeared 👎🏽 I’m no doctor but I feel as this is due to damage to my immune system? I have no idea though am just here for guidance

Sounds like you have oral thrush which is caused by candida albicans.  It's a fungus, a pathogenic strain of yeast.  Your doctor gave you anti fungal drops, so that's probably what he or she is thinking you have.  If you are prescribed the antifungal medication, make sure to take it for the entire course prescribed by your doctor. If the drops you're taking aren't killing it entirely and it comes back, you may need a stronger fungicide, perhaps one that works systemically.  Go back to your doctor.

It's possible that you are re-infecting yourself. It's important to disinfect any dental appliances you can remove from your mouth.  Also, get a new toothbrush. 

People who have weakened immune systems are susceptible to it.  So, do whatever you can to bolster your immune system with rest and diet and cutting out behaviors that compromise it.  Yeast typically feeds on sugar, so I'd avoid it for at least the entire course of treatment.

@CookieSC thank you that is the most insightful advice I’ve had so far!

I’ve been taking the drops for 7 days which was the prescribed duration and I’ve seen improvement but the fact it’s reoccurring is bothering me. I’m going to go back to the doctor tomorrow. 

Thank you again 🙏🏼

You're welcome 😊.  I'm glad you are following up with your doctor tomorrow.  I hope you get relief from it!

      Pritelivir study phase II updated a couple days ago (Sept 19) and holding steady at a March 2020 completion date. Based on all current findings this could effectively be a "functional cure" which could halt symptoms and cut transmission risk to near zero. Lets all continue to hope for good news here https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03073967

      That’s good news mate. If only herpes lesions did that!

      Great to see another candidate progress forward- hope to see a phase I kick off in 2020. Remember all it takes is 1 goal to succeed, the more shots on goal the better   Sounds like Dr. Friedman was alluding to this paper in his conversation with @mikeherp

      @iFdUp i seen these on my patient portal... it’s the weekend so i won’t be able to talk to my doctor till Monday and thanks for being rude about it

      You should refer this question back to the person whom provided you these numbers, you need to be sure.  Wilso can't tell you for sure. If you aren't sure, you need to seek further medical advice.
