White stuff on my tongue...hmm

I woke up this morning with this white looking stuff on my tongue and throat. I wonder what that stuff is?.? I tried researching the internet and can't find anything. I've had a cough/sinus infection for a week now and have been taking antibiotics since last Wed. Just finished them last night. I'm still coughing, etc. I also wonder if maybe it's an allergic reaction to the mds I'm taking. If anyone has had this happen to them, please tell me what you did.

Might be an oral yeast infection called thrush or candida. It is an overgrowth of yeast bacteria. It can happen from antibiotic therapy. If you do a search on the internet for oral yeast infection you should find something. Also, look up and see if it's a side effect of the antibiotic you were on.

Thanks so much. It's hard to believe that antibiotics can cause that, but after reading the site, it sure can. Also, I just read that grape seed extract works well.
