anyone else here notice a white coating on their toungue? ive read up a bit on it and it seems like it could be major while also nothing at all. anyone know how its related and why?? thanks!!
Thrush is not the only cause. It could just be a hairy tongue. Treatments for thrush can make hairy tongue worse.quote:Thrush is a candida infection in the mouth which causes a white, flaky coating on the tongue
I don't know what "bad digestion" is, although vitamin B deficiences can be associated with tongue inflammation.quote:I see a lot of coated or greyish tongues on people who have some form or another of bad digestion.
Never trust Chinese tongue diagnosis.quote:The Doc said a white, coated tounge is one sign[ they "read" your tounge!] of digestive imbalance and weakness.
This might make hairy tongue worse. Look for things that could be irritating the tongue. Antibiotics can cause it, but why is not understood.Any qualified doctor can properly distinguish this from thrush. See your doctor.[This message has been edited by flux (edited 11-08-2000).]quote:and losenges and mouth wash seem to do nothing at all.
Iï¿½m afraid it'squote:According to Dr. Crooks who wrote the Yeast Connection, yeast feeds on sugar and definitely makes it worse, along with antibiotics, and birth control pills.I can verify myself sugar does make yeast worse since I have the problem myself and after ingesting sugar I get headaches and sore throats, all symptoms of yeast overgrowth. The book actually does a great job of explaining the whole thing and I'd recommend it to anyone who thinks they have a yeast problem
