Post White stuff on my tongue

Hi, I have this white stuff on my tongue, right at the back near my tonsils.. I always have a bad taste in my mouth and have had it for over a week now. Tastes like I'm chewing on mouth balls! Anyone help??

The "white stuff" could be what is called Thrush. This is a fungal infection that can occur on the tounge. It's formal name is Candida Albicans. Do you use a steriodal inhaler for asthma by any chance? If so, you must rinse out your tounge and throat each time.

If it is a fungus, a doctor can prescribe Diflucan in pill form that has to be taken for several weeks. You should rule out thrush. All the best.

about a year ago i had the same problem...i had little white bumps on the back of my tounge and my throat hurt really bad. I went to the doctors and it was an infection. They gave me some pills and it was cleared up in like 3 days. good luck!
