    Tongue - no one can diagnose. help, please!

    I'll keep this as short as I can. Had H Pylori back in Jan. Took the triple therapy and eradicated the infection. Since that time I've had tiny white sport/bitter taste in my mouth.

    Gastroenterologist gave my Nystatin. That didn't resolve it.

    Dentist says it's not geographic tongue as there are not smooth areas.

    ENT took swab and said no fungus (candida). He gave me Peridex. Still not resolved.

    Pulmonologist ordered CT scan of sinuses and the radiologist reported mild thickening on the sinus cavities.

    I've tried it all. tongue scraping. violeta genciana. Peroxide. Salt water rinse. Sinus rinse. I can't get rid of it. I've even heard of people saying pines nuts cause this (I don't eat them though!) Can anyone shed any light on this.

    I've attached a picture.
