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?

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!

      Herpes blisters typically are clear fluid filled. Also, you would typically have more than a singular blister. I lean away from it being herpes.

      Hello Bd2132, it does look like herpes. But to be completely sure get tested. That's the only way to be 100% sure. Hope things turn out well for you. If you do have herpes just remember there are a lot of people on this cite that will help you. Blessed be

      Hey everyone,      I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago, and noticed what I thought was a pimple or ingrown hair at the base of my penis about 3-4 days later. At first I didn't think anything of it, because I had done some shaving as well. But I'm now starting to get worried.    Besides the red spot, I have felt the need to urinate more frequently, which is what made me start thinking something else was going on.    I do have an appointment with a doctor next week to get tested regardless, I'm just panicked now.      The spot never blistered, it has just been a red lump with what looked like a white head pimple. I did pop it not thinking, and what came out was a white solid like a pimple. It has only been this one spot as well.      Does this look like it could possibly be herpes?

      Did anyone ordered it online? Shipping time? Does it ship to anywhere?    So the price is about 150€ for 1 course (=5 times, 1 time each 7 days? )    Is it simple to self take? (by the help of a friend)  I would like to try it, and I am considering it.
