Hi Faisal,

Has anything else recently changed in your diet, medications and/or supplements?

Be sure to discuss this with your medical provider to find out what's going on if it continues and remains a concern.

Hi Faisal85,

I am sorry you are having a difficult time however changes in the color of the tongue are relatively common and normal and generally pass quickly. They are often associated with the color of specific foods or lozenges and will fade as the 'stain' is washed out by the saliva.

Since you are having both oral and fecal color changes I suggest that you return to the physician who prescribed the anti fungal medications and show them the color change in your mouth and ask if they need a stool sample as well.

I hope you feel better and that this helps.

Dr. Gwen Cohen Brown
