FUZZY TONGUE

TOADBOO posted:
Over the last year or two my tongue often gets very sore with white stuff on it. I can wipe off some of it but it is very disgusting. It hurts so bad and if I eat with it, it is intolerable. I swish with peroxide and that helps some but it never goes away. I smoke also but not very much. I went to the doctor for this and she said I had an over abundance of yeast on my tongue. She gave me some very strong antibiotic to take for almost two months which made me cramp and become very sick yet it did nothing for this fuzzy painful mess.
What do I do now and what in the world could it be? I am getting very scared!!

it is a yeast infection better known as thrush. Return to your doctor or a different doctor so the medication can be changed or clarification on how to take the medication and what foods should you avoid and what foods help eliminate the yeast. Also be sure to perform proper dental hygene at least twice a day.
